The Case of Optimized Combustion of Hydrogen with Hydrocarbons Using Vibrating Element Technology - The Future is Here
The favorable heating value of hydrogen gas makes it desirable primary or supplemental fuel. Excess process hydrogen can easily help to offset natural gas consumption, thus lowering operating costs. Efficient combustion of hydrogen gas mixtures is problematic for conventional combustion controls. Determining the hydrogen concentration in real time allows precise calculation of stoichiometric and excess air and LHV for the control system. Determining the hydrogen concentration and LHV in gaseous fuel can be accomplished using recent developments in Vibrating Element instrumentation.
