E Instruments has unveiled its E4500-S Hand-Held Combustion Emissions Analyzer. The company says the new analyzer quickly and accurately measures NOx & SOx from high-efficiency and condensing boilers, burners, engines, turbines, kilns, furnaces, incinerators, and other industrial combustion processes.
For new installations and annual maintenance, the combustion analyzer has become a critical tool for HVAC professionals. Used for both furnaces and boilers, the basic hand-held device measures carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxygen, and stack temperature.
Bacharach Inc. announced key product upgrades to its PCA® 400 combustion and emissions analyzer platform. The upgrades include sensor protection, low-NOx measurement, near-field communications (NFC), and the ability to connect/control the analyzer with a newly released mobile app.
The E8500 PLUS emissions analyzer is a portable tool for EPA compliance level emissions monitoring and testing. The company says the E8500 PLUS is ideal for regulatory and maintenance use in boiler, burner, engine, turbine, furnace, and other combustion applications.
To improve energy efficiency and meet environmental regulatory requirements for small and midsize boiler markets, Emerson says it has introduced the Rosemount CX1100 in situ oxygen analyzer. The product is a high-performance, zirconia cell-based combustion control system designed for these boilers.
To help chilled water systems reach their efficiency potential, Carrier has further enhanced its ChillerVu™ plant control system to include the new Carrier ChillerVu chilled water system optimizer. The new optimizer extends control efficiencies beyond the chiller plant and improves the efficiency of the entire chilled water system, including AHUs, fan coils, and other chilled water distribution equipment. Based on laboratory and field tests, Carrier officials said adding the optimizer to a building’s chilled water system can yield energy savings in the range of 3% to 15% percent (versus non-optimized systems).
Extech Instruments launched the SDL700 Pressure Meter and Datalogger. The new handheld meter is designed to measure and monitor pressure conditions in HVAC systems as well as in process control and compressor control systems in industrial settings. The company says the new meter offers users a rugged design with flexible programming configurations and the convenience of datalogging readings in Excel format directly onto an SD card.
Engineered Systems magazine’s June 2019 issue examines the role of HVAC systems and power in colleges and universities via the decentralization of a Missouri college’s central boiler plant, an examination of ventilation considerations in Group R-2 facilities, the steps engineers should consider when overcoming unanticipated boiler room setbacks, common calculations and considerations regarding NFPA 92, and much more.
