Zirconium dioxide measuring sensor for direct indication of unincinerated substances (CO/H ) in furnace exhaust gases
Zirconium dioxide probe for monitoring and optimising incineration processes through the direct indication of unincinerated substances (CO/H ) in furnace exhaust gases.
In complete incineration processes, the KS1 probe can be used as an O2 measuring sensor. Other applications are also possible, such as the measurement and monitoring of CO and H concentrations in gases.
The probe operates using the potentiometric measurement principle, on the basis of a solid electrolyte of stabilised zirconium dioxide.This material, already proven in the Lambda Probe LS 1, enables measurements to be taken in-situ, directly in the exhaust gas from a furnace. The measurements taken with the probe have long-term stability.
The probe has been specially developed to produce a rapid and distinct reaction to the occurrence of CO or H2 in the exhaust gas. CO and H2 emissions are reliable indicators of an improperly functioning incineration process.
