ADIPEC 2014 LumaSense introduces new IR thermometer to protect profits of petrochemical facilities

Progress in petrochemical engineering. LumaSense introduces the Infrared Thermometer E²T PULSAR 4 for condition based monitoring of petrochemical combustion vessels at ADIPEC 2014. This infrared thermometry for sulfur reactors and other high temperatnnSANTA CLARA, Frankfurt/M, Nov. 12, 2014 - LumaSense Technologies, Inc.® introduced its next generation petrochemical infrared sensor, the Infrared Thermometer E²T PULSAR 4 ( ) at ADIPEC 2014, one of the world"s largest Oil & Gas shows in the petrochemical sector.

With installations at over 550 petrochemical facilities worldwide, the PULSAR 4 is LumaSense"s latest addition to its E2T line of petrochemical infrared sensors - an IR filtered detectors pyrometer system.

Oil & Gas operations in the petrochemical sector are heavily dependent on combustion based processes to supply the world"s growing energy needs. Non-contact temperature measurement is needed. Optimal operation of Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU), Sulphur Burner, and Thermal Oxidizer furnaces require accurate process Gas (Flame) measurement and accurate Refractory measurement for operational safety (high temperature alarms). Of particular importance is control of the furnace process temperatures to prevent damage to the furnace refractory and assurance that reaction or destruction temperatures are reached and maintained. The Problem: Thermocouple measurement of acid processes either fail prematurely or are protected by multiple thermo wells and sweep air systems that make thermal transmission to the actual thermocouple inaccurate or slow and only provides a refractory measurement not useful for process control. Typical Single Channel Infrared Pyrometers do not compensate for changing flame transparencies and only provide one wavelength measurement. Clients must settle for either a Gas (Flame) or Refractory measurement or make multiple installations requiring multiple ports and hardware installations.

The LumaSense Solution: A single pyrometer installation with two independent IR filtered detectors that provides both Gas (Flame) and Refractory measurements simultaneously, combined with the innovative LumaSense Smart FMA Flame Measurement Algorithm that will accurately do real-time flame transparency compensation and correction.

Applying flame transparency calculation with FMA removes the flame transparency errors that typical IR pyrometers experience to the Gas (Flame) and Refractory temperatures, providing the highest accuracy in process temperatures.

So the PULSAR 4 is intended for monitoring the Refractory and Gas temperatures inside Sulfur Recovery Units, Sulfur Burner Furnaces, and Thermal Oxidizer Furnaces frequently found at these facilities.

"Any one of these vessels can force a shut down that will cost $1M or more per day", said LumaSense CEO, Steve Abely. "Unplanned downtime eats into planned profits, whereas increasing uptime increases profit. The PULSAR 4 is a condition based maintenance system to protect refinery profits", continued Abely.

The PULSAR 4 is an explosion proof infrared thermometer (pyrometer) with the ability to see through flames and simultaneously deliver the Refractory Temperature and Gas Temperature with precision to 0.3 °C and a range of 350° to 2000° C. The PULSAR 4 Advanced features LumaSense"s propriety Smart Flame Measurement Algorithm (Smart FMAâ¢) which accounts for flame transparency that can affect the temperature readings for a more precise view of activity inside these vessels. LumaSense"s updated and powerful InfraWin software interprets the data from the PULSAR 4 for analysis inside control room.

"Our Smart FMA⢠technology, serviceability, and long standing relationships with major producers is what separates the PULSAR 4 from the rest", said E2T product manager David Ducharme.
Customers with PULSAR II and III can leverage their existing infrastructure to upgrade these units to the new PULSAR 4 and its advanced capabilities.

The new PULSAR 4 can be viewed at ADIPEC 2014, at the LumaSense booth HV 135, an outdoor pavilion on the fairgrounds. With over 60,000 attendees and 1600 companies exhibiting, ADIPEC 2014 is one of the world"s largest Oil & Gas shows. Also based in Abu Dhabi is AIMS, a leading supplier of analytical instrumentation and the Middle East distribution partner for LumaSense products in the region.nnKontakt
