BULLETIN 880-NSL

Model 880-NSL Tail Gas Analyzer


THE NEED
AMETEK Western Research, the leader in tail gas analysis
for over 25 years, is proud to introduce Model 880-NSL
(No Sample Line) tail gas analyzer. This compact, rugged,
transmitter-style analyzer mounts directly on your process
pipe. The Model 880-NSL was designed using new
technological advancements developed to meet your
operational demands. The analyzer mounts directly on
your process pipe, eliminating sample line plugging. The
880-NSL photometer combines an extraordinary long lamp
life (estimated 5 years!) with many innovative features
designed to minimize maintenance and increase reliability.
The 880-NSL is equipped with anti-clogging blowback
features. The analyzer continuously monitors itself for
proper operation and has built-in alarm features.

APPLICATIONS

Sulfur recovery units


Claus process
Claus with tail gas cleanup
Claus with oxygen enrichment

SAMPLE HANDLING
AND ANALYSIS
The Model 880-NSL does not have an external sample line.
The AMETEK Western Research Model 880-NSL mounts
directly on the process pipe.
Designed for low maintenance sampling and analysis,
the 880-NSL photometer combines an extraordinary long
lamp life with many innovative features designed to minimize
maintenance and increase reliability.

One of a family of AMETEK Analyzer Systems for


optimizing sulfur removal and recovery

SUPERIOR BENEFITS

No sample line

No moving parts

Self Diagnostics

Continuously monitors itself for proper operation and has


built-in alarm features.

Remote dial in via modem

Anti-Clogging and Blowback Features


Any analyzer fault conditions automatically initiates air
blowback to clear the sample system. This feature minimizes
the chance of costly downtime by reducing sample line
plugging.
Integrated Worldwide Design
Ready to install worldwide with very modest utility
requirements.

Easy pipemount installation


Stainless steel construction
Fast response time
Provision for instrument air and hot water backflush
Suitable for US and European hazardous area
classification

Electronic zero and span check


Microprocessor-based electronics with selfdiagnostics capabilities
