Focus on Analyzers

| By Gerald Ondrey

Optimize boiler performance with this conductivity analyzer

The high-temperature, high-pressure CSX2 conductivity analyzer (photo) helps ensure boiler performance while minimizing maintenance, repairs and extending operational life in a wide range of critical industrial applications requiring water heating and steam. The analyzer is designed for service up to 392°F (200°C) and 250 psig, or 212°F (100°C) and 400 psig. This insertion-style 0.75-in. MNPT, 316 stainless-steel sensor has PEEK insulators and is available with or without an integral signal conditioner. The device measures conductivity over a wide range from 1.0 μS to 50 mS. A wide range of signal conditioners are available for the CSX2 sensor to optimize the conductivity measurement at specific ranges. The Model LQ800 multi-channel controller or the T80 Transmitter have a user-specified signal conditioner that is mounted inside the CSX2 instrument or optionally in a remote junction box. — Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD), Anaheim, Calif.
