Customer Success Story: Nitrous Acid (HNO2 ) Measurement in Fertilization Plant
Guided Wave’s dual-beam ClearView® db Vis-NIR Process System Analyzer was fully incorporated for plant-wide HNO2 measurement and optimization.
A global firm specializing in agricultural products and environmental protection agents needed a solution to improve employee safety during the manufacturing process. Its largest business area is the production of nitrogen fertilizer; however this process also encompasses the production of nitrates, ammonia, urea and other nitrogen-based chemicals.
The company was taking liquid samples of the HNO3 manually, several times every day for the determination of the HNO2 level. This was costly and the manual handling of the samples was extremely dangerous and toxic for the employees.
In an effort to improve plant safety during this manufacturing process as well as to optimize the process, they decided to look for a way to minimize the employee handling of this substance.
After researching several technologies to measure HNO2 in the lab, they determined that Guided Wave’s ClearView db Analyzer System was the best solution. FIND OUT WHY – READ MORE
