OMD 14 has the continuous humidity measurement as a new option

The oxygen measuring device OMD 14 has the continuous humidity measurement as a new option. The OMD 14 can now be configured and used with an integrated humidity measurement (H2O: 0 ... 40% by volume, accuracy: ± 2% by volume) in flue gas and process gases. The humidity content is determined by means of the decomposition voltage of a zirconium dioxide cell.

The field test for the extension of the function was carried out on a thermal residual waste treatment and energy generation plant with a capacity of up to 250,000 megawatt hours per year.

Our gas analysis portfolio keeps growing with the MCA 10 maritime!

A precise and reliable extractive hot gas measuring analyser system is now available for maritime applications. The MCA 10 maritime is certified and type approved by DNV in accordance to MEPC.259(68). It is a ready-to-use analyser system for measurement of SO2 and CO2 as well as further measuring components, e.g. NO and NO2. By low-maintenance technology, high availability and robustness to operate on ships (acc. to DNVGL-CG-0339), it is suitable for the challenging maritime industry. The analyser is based on our well-proven QAL1/MCERTS certified hot-wet analyser MCA 10 HWIR applied in CEMS worldwide since 2015.

Current research projects

Development of the continuous monitoring of the acid dew point in order to increase the energy efficiency in industrial plants and to protect the climate

The focus of the 18-month project is the development of the continuous acid dew point measurement (methodology and technology). The idea of the research and product development project is based on variety of concrete applications from the chemical, energy and environmental sectors. These sectors have been facing the similar problem for years – namely this means that in combustion plants at a certain exhaust gas temperature, the sulphur oxides react to sulfuric acid which is harmful to the plant in the presence of water vapour. In order to counteract the devastating corrosion process, the exhaust gas temperatures are usually kept well above the acid dew point. The energy expenditure for this is very high, consequently are also the ecological damages considerable. The target is to use appropriate measuring technology to keep the exhaust gas temperature as close as possible above the actual acid dew point, in order to achieve a lower energy input, higher power output and to reduce CO2, SO2 and NOx emissions.

Development of a quick and automatic test system to detect boars smells

Male piglets produce hormones upon their sexual maturity which can initiate a disagreeable boars’ smell. This smell can decrease the sales of boars’ meat in Germany and Europe. Early slaughter and manual odour tests are currently applied. Legal basic conditions aggravate other methods which are used in the early phase of the boars’ growth. From 2019 onwards the piglets’ castration without anaesthesia will be forbidden. Vaccinations shall find a remedy, however these are not the optimal solution with regard to consumer protection. 

In the current R&D project a quick test automatic based on metal oxide sensor technology shall be developed for the application on the slaughter line in order to standardise the judgement of the smell objectively. The project has started on 1st of August 2016 and will be performed in cooperation with the Frankenförder research institute and a company (slaughterhouse) from Thuringia.

Start of microelectronics EU project IoSense

Project IoSense kicked off on 19. May 2016 in Dresden.  28 partners from 7 European countries launched the project "Flexible Sensor pilot line for IoT", in short: IoSense, on the 19th of May 2016 by consortium leader Infineon Dresden. The whole funding volume of the project is 65 million euros. Funding sponsors are the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research and the Free State of Saxony. Dr. Födisch Umweltmesstechnik AG hereby profits by the further development of the fine dust sensor FDS 15 to chip level, being so prepared for the future requirements of industry 4.0.
