Yokogawa continues to innovate in the industrial process measurement and control field with their TDLS200 Gas Analyzer. Based on tunable diode laser spectroscopy, these industrial instruments offer calibration stability and fast in situ measurement. They can also be applied in a manner that avoids interference from other gases present in the sample. In the company's own words...

The new Yokogawa TruePeak Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLS200) Analyzer is one of the most robust process analyzers available designed to make fast, accurate measurements on near-infrared absorbing gases in harsh process environments, where conditions are of high temperature or pressure, it can be used under difficult conditions including environments involving corrosive, aggressive and high particulate content materials. 


The TruePeak Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLS200) Analyzer is ideally suited to in-situ analysis, particularly for measurements in environments involving changing pressure or temperature. It can operate with process pressures up to 20 bar absolute and process temperature up to 1500°C, has a fast response (from 2 to 20 seconds), and is interference-free for most applications. 


It can measure Carbon monoxide (CO), from low ppm detection limits to percentage levels at process temperatures of up to 1500°C. The analyzer can also be used for measuring parts per million moisture content in corrosive and aggressive process streams including chlorine and hydrocarbons.


The industrial applications for this technology, integrated into an intuitive and user-friendly equipment package, are extensive. Included below is a white paper authored by the company that explains the operating principles, installation and configuration, and capabilities of the unit. Contact a product specialist about your gas measurement and analysis requirements. See how the capabilities of the TDLS200 can improve your process performance.
