German manufacturer of gas analysers SK Elektronik (SKE) has appointed Quantitech as its exclusive UK distributor.
SKE is a global provider of gas analysers based on the principle of flame ionisation detection (FID), a common technique for the measurement of total organic carbon (TOC) in emissions containing solvents, petrochemicals and unburnt fuel.
Key applications for the company’s analysers include environmental emissions monitoring, process gas analysis, the measurement of abatement efficiency (for example, carbon adsorption and thermal oxidation processes), and rapid wastewater treatment plant performance measurements with VOC strippers.
Quantitech MD Ken Roberts said he was “delighted” to be working with SKE for a number of important reasons, not least the fact that the SKE analysers “have performance certification – MCERTS for all versions and ATEX for certain models.
“Quantitech’s MCERTS approved FTIR analysers are able to measure TOC by integrating measurements for known organic compounds. However, FID is the standard method for the measurement of TOC in the emissions of regulated processes, so in addition to stand-alone FID analysers, we will also offer the SKE FID technology as part of our integrated continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS).”
