Ametek WDG-V Combustion Analyzer

Why the need for an Ametek WDG-V Combustion Analyzer? The reliable identification of low combustion oxygen in a fired heater or boiler has always been critical to the effectiveness of the Burner Management System for proper control and safety.

Ametek WDG-V Combustion Analyzer for increased efficiency and emission reductions

Low emission burners and aggressive firing control points to achieve increased efficiency and emission reductions have driven the industry to tighter control measures.  But tighter control measures also hold a greater potential for combustion events. Reducing the risk of a combustion event has become a priority and has led to the implementation of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).  This additional layer of safety is added to the Basic Process Control System.

The Ametek WDG-V Combustion Analyzer has been designed to provide an additional layer of safety with the measurement of excess O2, Combustibles and Methane and by using these measurements to ensure the safe operation of the Burner Management System.

the Future of Industrial Process Analytics: The OMA Process Analyzer

At Analytical Solutions and Products, we are constantly seeking to innovate and provide our clients with the most advanced solutions in industrial process analytics. This is why we have chosen the OMA Process Analyzer by Applied Analytics as the new standard, replacing this Ametek process gas analyzer. We firmly believe that the OMA Process Analyzer represents the future of industrial process analytics. Its advanced technology and robust design align perfectly with our commitment to innovation and excellence in the field. By integrating the OMA Process Analyzer into your operations, you are not just upgrading your equipment; you are stepping into the future of industrial analysis.

OMA-300 Wall-mounted OMA Process Analyzer Eexp systems purged and pressurized using a certified air purging device is a great alternative to the Ametek WDG-V Combustion Analyzer

Why the OMA Process Analyzer instead of the Ametek WDG-V Combustion Analyzer?

The OMA Process Analyzer stands out due to its remarkable capability to continuously measure the components of a liquid or gas process stream with utmost precision. This feature makes it an invaluable tool in a wide range of industrial applications, ensuring efficiency and accuracy in real-time analysis.
