Emerson Process Management: Advanced Technology for Gas Analysis

One of the leading names in process automation for a variety of businesses, Emerson Process Management has released the Rosemount CT5100. The CT5100 is the most recent product in its CT5000 line of series of portable solutions for continuous analysis of gas and monitoring of emissions and is the only hybrid analyzer in the world to combine Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) and Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL).

The CT5100 can analyze approximately 12 critical gasses simultaneously without any modification to handle moisture in the components and is certified for use within international regulations. Not only that, the machine operates with no consumables or in the field enclosure. This means a high level of portability along with a sturdier framework. The CT5100 is also interoperable with its function in the sense that it can be used to process gas analysis, steady monitoring of emissions and ammonia slip uses.

Laser Chirp Technology

The idea behind the CT5100 is the use of the new “laser chirp” technology which enhances the overall sensitivity and selectivity in the gas analysis in the near and mid-range infrared spectrum by eliminating cross interference and enhancing the response time. This is achieved by well-defined peaks with optimal spectroscopy resolution without the incorporation of reference cells, special filtration, or chemometric manipulations. According to Ruth Lindley, product manager for QCL analyzers at Emerson: “The rise in regulatory needs worldwide, as well as the lack of qualified staffs in industrial plants have paved the way for the advent of a new generation of quicker, more precise, and easy-to-use measurement technologies”, which was the inspiration for the CT5100 which works by providing data from 6 different layers of laser inside a single solid-state component for reducing maintenance needed during its lifetime translating in lesser prices for upkeep than any other competitive products in the same range.
