By Fluid Components International
A leading supplier of landfill gas extraction and recovery systems located in the Midwest region of the U.S. relies on flow meters from Fluid Components International (FCI) for gas flow measurements in landfills. The company has developed hundreds of landfill gas system flares and extraction system skids that are in operation worldwide, which all require accurate gas flow measurement.
Combustion flue gas analysis has been used by process heater operators for decades as a method of optimizing fuel/air ratio. By measuring the amount of excess oxygen and/or CO in the flue gases resulting from combustion, furnace operators can operate at optimum efficiency and lowest NOx, and also generate the least amount of greenhouse gas. The theoretical ideal, or the stoichiometric point is where all fuel is reacted with available oxygen in the combustion air and no fuel or O2 is left over.
