Our measurement technologies keep a close eye on emissions and processes.

For an exhaust air purification system from LUEHR FILTER GmbH, Dr. Födisch UMT AG has installed two redundant CEMS in a measuring container. Each measurement system is equipped with a multi component analyser (MCA 10), a mercury measurement device and a dust measurement device (PFM 06 ED). The factory acceptance test was done recently at the production site in Germany. They will be operated in a waste incineration plant in Finland.

Qualified process measurement in the RDF plant of the Mecklenburger Kartoffelveredelung GmbH in Hagenow (Germany)

For process monitoring a hot sample stream is continuously taken and sent to the gas analyser (MCA 10) via a heated sample gas line. The MCA 10 analyzes HCl, CO, SO2 and H2O. No gas conditioning is required for hot gas analysis. The analyser is tested for suitability (DIN EN 15267-3) and certified according to QAL1 and MCERTS performance standards.

ATEX-version of our multi-gas analyzer MGA12

Do you already know the ATEX-version of our multi-gas analyzer MGA12 – the MGA12Ex? This analyzer can be used in potentially explosive atmospheres according to Ex II 2G Ex d IIB+H2 T5 Gb.  Like its eponym, the MGA12Ex measures up to 5 components simultaneously. Due to the applied protective principle Ex d you can also feed potentially explosible exhaust gases. Its internal gas paths are pressure-resistant up to 3 bar. MGA 12Ex is suitable for emission monitoring and for process measurements in all types of industrial plants. Find out more about the analyzer here.

Particulate matter sensor for use in smart cities and in industry

The FDS 15 from Dr. Födisch UMT AG is suitable for air quality monitoring in the environment and in industry (workplace monitoring). For a high measuring accuracy the actively sucked air flow is continuously heated. In addition, qualified zero setting is carried out regularly. It is possible to transfer the real-time values via W-LAN to a database and display the numerical values and charts on a website or on cellular phones. If you are interested in the FDS 15, then contact us.

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.
