New Trace On-Line Silica Analyzer Improves Reliability of Process Water Monitoring

Chelmsford, Massachusetts –(Business Wire) — a new trace silica analyzer for real-time monitoring of ultrapure water, steam, and water chemistry can more accurately protect Expensive components, including turbines and heat exchangers. The analyzer ensures continuous, energy-efficient operation and maximum uptime in the power generation, oil and gas, chemical, pulp and paper, and semiconductor industries.

This new Thermo Scientific Orion 8030cX Silica Analyzer combined a The patented fluid delivery system features optimized reagent chemistry to reliably increase silica detection limits to sub-parts-per-billion levels. It provides accurate and precise results over a broad analytical range of 0-5000 µg/L. The analyzer has a 10% increase in reagent life compared to competitors – consuming approximately 200 µL of reagent per test. It can monitor continuously for up to 100 days unattended while reducing chemical waste. The improved reagent chemistry minimizes common interference from phosphates and can be used for more than six months without performance degradation (under batch operation).

“Without continuous monitoring, impurities in process water can quickly become damaging and costly,” said Denzil Vaughn, vice president and general manager of growth protection and separation at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The Orion 8030cX Silica Analyzer addresses this need with direct, accurate real-time online monitoring of silica to prevent build-up, improve energy efficiency and maximize uptime.”

The Orion 8030cX Silica Analyzer utilizes advanced automation technology with advanced intuitive features such as automatic calibration, verification and cleaning, intelligent system diagnostics and alarm notifications to reduce manual intervention and maintenance. IP65-rated rugged analyzers provide superior analytical performance in harsh industrial environments.
