The energy sector encompasses a diverse range of applications and technologies, each with unique measurement challenges. This sphere includes:
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.
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.
Alternative Energy Generation Technologies:In alternative energy sources, such as solar photovoltaics, hydrogen fuel cell devices, and other renewables, Tiger provides an ever-widening range of analytes and available sample conditions to serve customer needs. In the fuel cell market, Tiger CO, CO2, CH4, H2O, O2 and other monitors are used by regulators and gas manufacturers to verify the purity of the hydrogen fuel, protecting the PEM cells.
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.
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.
