Paper Abstract

Cement kilns are the main source of atmospheric pollutants, and will consume large amounts of fuel. In order to reduce the emissions of gas pollutants and saving fuel, the combustion process inside the furnace is needed to monitor in real time. Oxygen is the main combustion-supporting gas, monitoring the oxygen concentration inside the furnace can be implemented to combustion control and optimize combustion efficiency. We developed a TDLAS analyzer for real-time oxygen concentration measurement to achieve fuel saving and gas pollutant emission reduction. We realized temperature correction algorithm using the relationship between high-temperature oxygen line strength and measurement temperature, improving the measurement accuracy of the oxygen concentration at different temperatures. We tested the analyzer and the test results show that detection limit was 0.1%, analyzer can be achieved accurate measurement of oxygen concentration, the measured oxygen concentration was 5-8%. Results were true and reliable indicated that the oxygen measuring system can be developed to achieve long-term stability operation in high-temperature environments oxygen concentration measurement.
