General Details

Extractive Scattered Light Analyser

Extractive dust monitor for wet sample gas to monitor low to medium dust concentrations.

Suitable for dust concentration measurement:

  • at garbage, hazardous waste and sewage sludge incinerators
  • at power stations with gas, oil, coal or co-firing
  • at systems behind the flue gas scrubber
  • at systems behind desulfurization
  • at systems with low exhaust temperature and constant or occasional dew point



  • Extractive measurement, continuous measurement, dilution of the sample
  • Suitable for systems with variable gas speed
  • Hyperkinetic sampling
  • Allows calibration to measure the dust concentration in mg/m3
  • Single sided mounting to the chimney
  • Automatic zero and reference point check
  • Automatic measurement and correction of contamination of optical surfaces
  • Laser light source with long lifetime
  • Easy installation, adjustment and maintenance without a PC
  • Local control panel and LCD display
