Determination of Oxygen in Dry Chlorine

Levels of oxygen in dry chlorine in hydrochloric acid synthesis are monitored by means of an on-line analyzer system that can be equipped with two different measuring technologies: Alternating Pressure Paramagnetic or Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) analyzer system.

Hydrochloric acid or HCl is one of the primary products of the chlor-alkali industry and commonly produced by the exothermic reaction of hydrogen and chlorine inside a burner. With increasing concerns over safety and efficiency in the chlorine manufacturing processes, AppliTek has investigated the use of proprietary on-line analyzer systems to monitor and control HCl synthesis. Each of these on-line analyzer systems has been selected to control a specific part of the burner, by using techniques such as multi-wavelength infrared, thermal conductivity and wet-chemical liquid analysis. For all other solutions to this application field, please browse the On-line Analyzers Suite under Products & Solutions.
