May 5, 2020
High-speed analysis enables live process and safety control, energy efficiency and yield improvements.

Yokogawa Corporation of America has released the TDLS8100 probe-type Tunable Diode Laser Spectrometer (TDLS), which enables operators to make a step change in safety improvements, emission reductions, optimization of fuel efficiency and yields, as well as prolong the life of their assets, according to its maker.

A flagship product in Yokogawa’s OpreX Analyzers lineup, the TDLS 8100 makes quick and accurate in situ gas-concentration measurements, eliminating the requirement for sampling and conditioning components. This results in reduced installation and maintenance costs. The instrument is field-serviceable with no consumables or calibration required, per Yokogawa. The single-flange design allows installation where cross-duct TDLS technology was previously not feasible due to accessibility, obstructions or budget constraints.

“The energy transition, which has already begun, is the most profoundly disruptive issue facing the energy and chemicals industry,” comments Tom Quinlan, vice president of Yokogawa Corporation of America. “A smarter planet requires smarter plants; the TDLS 8100 is an integral measurement device that drives competitive advantage in a holistic and sustainable way.”
