Ammonia relevance is a key factor in the following: the production of agricultural fertilizers; hydrogen storage mediums; feedstock compounds for other large-scale industrial processes; new alternatives for the fuel and transportation power generation sector; and as a refrigerant fluid in the food and beverage industries. Wherever ammonia is directly or indirectly produced, there is a need for ammonia monitoring requiring reliable, fast and versatile instruments.
Whether to ensure the ammonia quality or the removal of ammonia when it is an undesired by-product (e.g. during olefins production in petrochemicals), ammonia gas detectors are required in high demand. Real-time ammonia monitors are mandatory for workers when volatile irritant chemical gases may be present. When exposed to such irritants, the human nose loses its capacity to detect the presence of these gases.
CI Analytics’ innovative dry colorimetric ammonia analysis was developed for a wide range of direct monitoring applications. For laboratory or process analysis, the CI Analytics analyzer is well suited for low ppb, ppm and percentage ammonia levels. Its easy-to-use unique software (CISmart) makes it ideal for general purposes and in explosive environments that operate continuously (24/7). The dry colorimetric analyzer requires low maintenance, and no specialized personnel is needed to understand the unit’s functionality. However, adequate safety compliance training for ammonia monitors is necessary.
