AMETEK Process Instruments Introduces WDG-V UOP RP Analyzer for Europe and International CCR Projects

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

PITTSBURGH, PA, Dec. 3, 2019 – AMETEK Process Instruments has broadened its line of Thermox WDG-V series flue gas analyzers to include the WDG-V UOP/RP for oxygen measurement in continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR) platforming / catalytic reforming processes. Building on the legacy of performance and high reliability of its predecessor, the WDG-IV UOP/RP, this analyzer uses industry-proven zirconium oxide technology, incorporating the latest WDG-V electronics and an improved enclosure for servicing.

By leveraging the WDG-V electronics platform, the analyzer offers advanced diagnostics, predictive maintenance algorithms, proactive alarms and digital communications. Designed for SIL-2 safety systems, the upgraded electronics provide an additional layer of safety to ensure reliable operation. The electronics also connect to the AMEVision HMI Host Display for an easy-to-navigate graphical user interface and additional digital communications.

In addition, the WDG-V UOP/RP is designed with an enhanced enclosure for improved ingress protection and easier servicing. The refined design uses floating hinges on the doors to give end users more accessibility for servicing and increased sealing for ingress protection.

Building on the field-proven design of its predecessor, the analyzer brings upgraded electronics and enhanced ingress protection for robustness, reliability and serviceability in the challenging CCR platforming/reforming process. This latest version is now available for European and International projects with ATEX and IECEx Zone 2 area classification requirements with CE marking and RoHS compliance.
