OMA Chlorine Process Analyzer with Flow Cell
OMA-

Chlorine Process Analyzer

Harnessing the power of full-spectrum acquisition, the OMA measures chlorine concentration from high percent levels to trace ppm with seamless accuracy.

To measure chlorine concentration, the OMA detects the distinctive absorbance curve of pure Cl2 and mathematically isolates this structure from the total sample absorbance and correlates the intensity of this curve directly to real-time chlorine concentration.

Various industrial processes require continuous monitoring of chlorine compounds’ concentrations for healthy operation. The connecting concern between all these applications is that the monitoring instrument is proofed against the highly corrosive chlorine compounds. Additionally, as some of these compounds are notorious for toxicity and/or explosiveness, chlorine compound analysis systems must be designed to prioritize operator safety.

The unique advantages of the OMA Chlorine analyzer:

  • Continuously measures up to 4 chemicals’ concentrations using dispersive UV-Vis absorbance spectroscopy
  • Totally solid state build with no moving parts — modern design for low maintenance
  • Ultra-safe fiber optic design with dedicated sample flow cell — no toxic/corrosive sample fluid in analyzer enclosure
  • Long-lifespan xenon light source (avg. 5 years)
  • Custom (per-application) sample conditioning design with Teflon wetted parts to withstand long-term corrosion
  • Decade of field-proven performance in the world’s harshest industrial environments

Chlorine Absorbance Spectrum

To measure chlorine concentration, the OMA detects the distinctive absorbance curve of pure Cl2 and mathematically isolates this structure from the total sample absorbance. In accordance with Beer-Lambert Law, the OMA correlates the height of this curve directly to real-time chlorine concentration.

Explosion-Proof Models

The OMA-300 is offered in two explosion-proof formats:

Exp (Purged) Explosion-Proof OMA-300

Eexp

Eexp systems are purged and pressurized using a certified air-purging device. This method ensures that toxic/explosive gas is not allowed to accumulate inside the enclosure and is ideal when instrument air is available.

Exd (Cast Aluminum) Explosion-Proof OMA-300

Eexd

Eexd systems are contained within certified explosion-proof cast-aluminum enclosures. This method is more practical if the installation is remote or utilities are unreliable.

Sampling: Chlorine Process Analyzer

The OMA is built for direct analysis of the hot/wet sample, thus simplifying the scope of the sample system and retaining high sample integrity. From our vast experience in sampling design, we know that applications can be similar but are rarely identical. For this reason, we design and build sample conditioning systems on a project basis, working from the process to the drawing board.
