The energy sector encompasses a diverse range of applications and technologies, each with unique measurement challenges. This sphere includes:
HF Alkylation Unit Emissions: Tiger-i HF analyzers protect the flare recovery unit downstream of HF Alkylation systems in refineries to prevent damage to costly equipment needed to comply with air-quality rules near major cities.
Hydrogen Fuel Cells:Contaminants in hydrogen are a key issue for the adoption of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, as they can compromise the performance or even damage critical components in PEM fuel cells. Tiger provides ideal solutions for hydrogen purity analysis for many of the critical molecules identified in purity standards such as SAE J2719. Tiger’s Spark and HALO families, as well as the multi-species Prismatic 2 offer high sensitivity and unparalleled user-friendliness for monitoring these compounds in hydrogen fuel, including CO, CO2, CH4, H2O, O2, NH3 and CH2O. All of Tiger’s CRDS analyzers can be used according to ASTM Standard Test Method D7941 for fast and consistent results.
Nuclear Energy: Tiger’s HALO units earned SIL 1 rating for deployment in nuclear plants to ensure optimum process control for gas-cooled reactors. Our moisture analyzers also help nuclear fuel reprocessors by calibration-free monitoring of fuel rod storage containers prior to reprocessing.
Power Generation from Fossil Fuels: Power generation from fossil fuels, such as coal and gas, presents the challenge of measuring a range of combustion by-products in a harsh environment, while power generation from nuclear requires safety-critical process control. From trace HCl measurements to comply with US EPA rules to continuous monitoring of ammonia slip for reducing the cost of abating NOx, Tiger units deliver reliably 24/7/365.
Tiger's full range of products - the LaserTrace, HALO, Tiger-i, Prismatic, and Spark - is capable of meeting the requirements for any given energy market application. For example, the Tiger-i 2000 HCl is proven for the measurement of this key pollutant as emitted from coal-fired power plants, while our flagship LaserTrace 3 and HALO 3 are recognized by ASTM and ISO to ensure fuel cell hydrogen meets SAE J2179 standards for purity, allowing extended cell lifetime and optimized performance.
