No More Purge Gas Required for New Tunable Diode Lasers for Combustion Processes


A new generation of TDLs not only offers exceptional fuel costs savings, but eliminates the need for process side purge gas.


Refineries, petrochemical, fertilizer and power plants worldwide have large numbers of combustion processes in operation, from process heaters and fired heaters to package boilers and large steam turbines. Whenever a process fluid needs to be heated as part of a chemical reaction, or there is a requirement for steam generation, there will be a combustion process at its heart.

This paper presents a review of the general anatomy of a typical combustion process; describing each zone and its function, before discussing some of the challenges of combustion measurement and how modern TDL analyzers such as METTLER TOLEDO’s GPro 500 and its range of process adaptions offer many advantages over typical combustion analysis technologies.

Inline continuous gas analysis is a necessary tool for effectively tracking emissions of many types. A tunable diode laser (TDL) can provide accurate continuous measurement of target gas concentration. With the proper installation configuration, the instruments exhibit no drift and are not subject to interference, offering a sustainable means of delivering needed process data.

Mettler Toledo, with the expansion of their GPro 500 Series of TDL instruments, now provides continuous gas concentration measurement solutions for carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxygen, moisture, hydrogen sulfide, and hydrogen chloride.

Varying application conditions can present specific challenges to an effective installation of a TDL, so the GPro 500 is available in variants that accommodate a range of installation conditions.

  • The standard probe is a purged configuration for general use.
  • A non-purged version is suitable for reactor of other vessel installation.
  • Combustion process measurements are handled by the non-purged filter probe, with a sintered filter to prevent dust from entering the measurement cell.
  • High particulate combustion processes can be served by the filtered probe provided with a blow-back port. It allows high pressure instrument air to clean the filter.
  • A wafer version, for tight spaces and pipes, is also available.
  • Two adaptions are also available for use with existing sample conditioning equipment.
  • A retroflector adapter enables a cross-pipe measurement. It is designed to forgo the need for alignment, making installation simple.
Tunable diode laser gas analyzers provide an effective means of continuous gas concentration measurement for the process industries and combustion operations. Share your process and combustion gas analysis challenges with a product application specialist, combining your own valuable process knowledge and experience with their product application expertise to develop effective solutions.

Innovative Tunable Diode Laser TDL Gas Analyzer

Mettler Toledo has developed the first compact TDL with an insertion probe form factor. The instrument requires only a single flange or insertion point in process piping. Several versions are available that accommodate a range of pipeline and media conditions. The video below tells the whole story. Detailed application information is available from product specialists.
