LGR’s new Industrial Emissions Analyzer (CO, CO2, H2O, O2), or IEA, is the first laser-based instrument capable of simultaneous measurements of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, water vapor and oxygen. The IEA is simple to use, sensitive, and rugged which makes it ideal for continuous emissions monitoring, industrial process control and compliance monitoring applications.
In addition, the IEA is now available in LGR’s “ultraportable” package which is compact, crushproof and travels anywhere. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved), the IEA offers opportunities to measure target gases anywhere. The IEA ultrafast response provides users with real-time data and the opportunity for closed-loop feedback control for continuous online optimization of processes such as furnaces (steel, glass manufacturing), incinerators, chemical production plants, petrochemical refineries and other high temperature processes.
Like all LGR analyzers, IEA measurements are based on high-resolution absorption spectra which allows the instrument to accurately correct for water vapor dilution and absorption line broadening effects and thus to accurately report CO, CO2 and O2 on a wet and dry mole fraction basis directly without drying or post processing. Furthermore, unlike conventional technologies (including photoacoustic, FTIR and NDIR techniques), LGR’s high resolution laser-based method provides accurate “species specific” measurements without cross sensitivity.
