Combustion occurs when fuels, such as natural gas, oil, coal or gasoline, react with oxygen in the air to produce heat and the combining of oxygen in the air and carbon in the fuel is a complex process.
Measuring the oxygen levels in the products of combustion process is key to ensuring that the correct air/fuel mix is being burnt and goes hand-in-hand with improving fuel efficiency.
The monitoring of these processes falls into two types:
- Measuring oxygen in the flue gas of boilers/heaters etc.
- Reacting a pre-mix of air and fuel within the analyser and measuring oxygen in the gases produced. This type is often used for monitoring and controlling surface flame treatment systems.
We have designed the Z1920C Zirconia Oxygen Analyser specifically to measure the oxygen content of pre-mix fuel of a variety of combustion processes.
