Measure oxygen in processes with this durable device

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Transic100LP oxygen transmitter uses tunable diode laser spectroscopy (TLDS) for repeatable and drift-free measurements, independent of process or sample gas flow, temperature and pressure. The device has no moving parts, and its optical components demonstrate durability, even when faced with liquid or dust incursions. The Transic100LP oxygen analyzer can be installed as a standalone in-situ analyzer, or as part of a close-coupled extractive measurement system. In-situ installations provide rapid response times and require no sample extraction or transport components for greater simplicity. Designed for in-process measurement, the optical probe is made of stainless steel with magnesium fluoride and quartz lenses for long-term durability. — SICK Inc., Minneapolis, Minn.
