Accurate control of combustion efficiency is a mainstay of fired boiler and other combustion operations. Reliable measurement of oxygen concentration in flue gas enables adjustment of the fuel to air ratio to produce efficient combustion, reducing cost and environmental impact. Since O2 sensors are located on an exhaust stack, generally a difficult location to access, high transmitter reliability and low maintenance requirements are beneficial.

The Oxymitter™, from Rosemount Analytical (div. of Emerson Process Management), is an in situ oxygen transmitter well suited for use in monitoring flue gas. The transmitter is applicable to all new installations and adaptable as a replacement for existing units. The zirconium oxide based sensing technology, along with advanced design, provide a host of useful features.

  • High accuracy measurement
  • Electronics mounted remotely, or on probe
  • Optional display
  • Optional wireless connectivity
  • Optional explosion proof ratings
  • Compatible with range of communications protocols
  • Fully field repairable
  • Variable probe insertion length
  • Optional Xi electronics provide additional functionality
