8 8 © UNEP 2005 Combustion Analyzer Measures the composition of flue gases after combustion What Does It Do? Monitoring Equipment Basically all combustion analyzers measure the % Oxygen or CO2 in the flue gases The efficiency can be calculated with an inbuilt programme Figure: A fyrite combustion analyzer

9 9 © UNEP 2005 Combustion Analyzer Determines the composition of flue gases in the duct, which flushes out the combusted gases to the chimney The flue gases’ composition values are based on volume Where & How It’s Used Monitoring Equipment Figure: A gas combustion analyzer Usually measure the % CO2 or O2 and the temperature of the flue gas Mostly, the flue gases are sucked out in order to react with chemical cells that enables the reading of O2 or CO2

10 10 © UNEP 2005 Combustion Analyzer Always calibrate the instrument in open fresh air before taking a set of measurements Check for clogging of the air filters Ensure that the rubber tubing carrying the gases to the instrument is not bended Wrap the opening space left by cotton rags to ensure that there is no in- or exfiltration of air Use of hand gloves, goggles and safety helmet Safety and precautions should be consulted from the operation manual Precautions Monitoring Equipment

12 12 © UNEP 2005 Manometers A manometer is a pressure measuring instrument that measure the differential pressure across two points The liquid-column manometer is the oldest type and can be a simple U-shaped tube that is half-full of liquid The pressure to be measured is applied to one side of the tube and is then represented by the difference in liquid levels in the tube legs What Does It Do? Monitoring Equipment

13 13 © UNEP 2005 Manometers Principles Monitoring Equipment Figure: Principles of a manometer a)The manometer is a U-tube half filled with liquid. When both ends of the tube are open, the liquid is at the same height in each leg. b)When positive pressure is applied to one leg, the liquid is forced down and up in the other leg. The difference in height, "h” indicates the pressure. c)When vacuum is applied to one leg, the liquid rises in that leg and falls in the other. The difference in height, "h," indicates the amount of vacuum. ab c hh

14 14 © UNEP 2005 Manometers 1)A single-limb liquid-column manometer use a large reservoir and a scale beside a narrower column and can be used to measure small differences between great pressures 2)Use the deflection of a flexible membrane that seals a fixed pressure reference volume to determine the pressure 3)Use a coiled tube that as it expands due to pressure increase causes rotation of an arm connected to the tube Monitoring Equipment Types of Manometers

15 15 © UNEP 2005 Manometers The air velocity in ducts can be measured using a pitot tube and inclined manometer for further calculation of flows The difference in level of the manometer gives the total velocity pressure The two openings at the end of the pitot tube are always connected to the two openings of the manometer Monitoring Equipment Where & How It’s Used Precautions Should not be exposed to very high pressures

17 17 © UNEP 2005 Thermometers Consists of two dissimilar metals that are joined together at one end As the temp. changes at the junction of the two metals, a voltage is produced that can be correlated back to the temp. Measures flue gas, hot air and hot water temp. through a probe in the stream The four most common calibrations are J, K, T and E, and those for high temperature calibrations include R, S, C and GB Monitoring Equipment Contact Thermometer

18 18 © UNEP 2005 Thermometers Based on the principle that all objects emit infrared energy: “The hotter the object, the more active its molecules, and the more infrared energy is emitted” Useful for measuring hot spots in furnaces, surface temperatures etc Allows measurements in applications where conventional sensors can’t be employed Monitoring Equipment Non Contact Type or Infrared Thermometer

19 19 © UNEP 2005 Thermometers Temperatures are generally recorded for air conditioning units, boilers, furnaces, steam systems, waste heat recovery systems and heat exchangers Where & How It’s Used Monitoring Equipment The probe or bulb has to be insterted into the fluid or gases that are to be measured Figure: Thermocouple

20 20 © UNEP 2005 Thermometers The probe must be immersed in the fluid and the measurement must be taken after 1- 2 minutes The range for which the thermocouple is made for should be noted beforehand The probe of the thermocouple should never touch the naked flame The emissivity should be set according to the surface where the temperature is to be measured Precautions Monitoring Equipment
