Yokogawa Adds TDLS8100 Probe Type Tunable Diode Laser Spectrometer To Its OpreX Analyzer Lineup
Jan 22, 2019

1.Costs Less to Install and Ensures Safe and Energy-efficient Operations


Yokogawa Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6841) announces that it has developed the TDLS8100 probe type tunable diode laser spectrometer and will release it for sale on January 23 as part of its OpreX™ Analyzer family. The TDLS8100 is targeted at applications in the oil, petrochemical, power, iron and steel, and other industries that require the ability to directly measure oxygen or carbon monoxide gas concentration at high speeds. With its integrated light launcher and detector, this new probe type tunable diode laser spectrometer significantly reduces the need for the installation of flanges*1 and scaffolding, and thus enables a 50% or greater reduction in installation costs.

The TDLS8100 joins a lineup that includes the TDLS8000 tunable diode laser spectrometer for high-temperature and high-pressure gas concentration measurement applications, and is intended for use in the measurement of flowing gases where there is a need to reduce installation costs. With the addition of the TDLS8100, Yokogawa will be able to provide its customers a greater range of choices on solutions that can help them ensure safe operations and maximize energy efficiency. Within the first half of this year, Yokogawa plans also to release a TDLS8100 model for the measurement of ammonia and hydrogen chloride gas concentrations.

2.Main Features

2.1TDLS8000 probe type tunable diode laser spectrometer

As the TDLS8100 comes with an integrated light launcher and detector, the flange and scaffolding only need to be installed on one side of the duct, reducing installation costs by 50% or more. This also eliminates the need to periodically perform*5 cumbersome and time-consuming maintenance procedures such as optical axis adjustment that are required with transmitted light detectors that use separate light launcher and detector.

2.2Highly accurate and highly reliable concentration measurement

Although the TDLS8100 is a probe type instrument, it is able thanks to the design of its optical components to maintain a stable laser optical axis and light path length (length of transmission of laser light through a measurement sample) for long periods of time.
