Application Note For Continuous Silica Monitoring
Monitoring ultra-low levels of silica throughout the plant helps manage power plant efficiency and reduce downtime by avoiding costly plant shutdowns and repairs. Learn how to protect your plant against the introduction of harmful levels of silica into the steam cycle.

It is common experience that many failures of condenser tubes in the electric utility industry occur within the first 6 inches of the bundle. Frequently encountered forms of such tube end damage are erosion, impingement attack, stress corrosion cracking and pitting/crevice corrosion. The damage variously manifests itself as tube thinning, grooving, localized pitting and cracking, all of which can ultimately lead to leakage and tube failure.
Real-time, ultra-sensitive measurement is required for a wide array of applications, including pollution and GHG monitoring. Traditional approaches such as non-dispersed infrared absorption (NDIR) and Chemiluminescence are slowly being augmented or in some cases replaced with new, laser-based analyzers that are capable of providing real-time ppb-level detection of key atmospheric species.
