Emerson Process Management has enhanced its Rosemount Analytical OCX8800 oxygen and combustibles transmitter for advanced functionality and reliability in coal-fired applications, helping to improve burner efficiency and reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The device, which features oxygen and combustibles measurement capabilities in a single design, now includes an improved sensor technology that reduces drift.

Adaptable to any oxygen and combustibles installation, the enhanced OCX8800 is NEMA 4X-rated for weather and corrosion resistance and is rated as explosion-proof. The device can be configured for general purpose installations, or it can be configured for hazardous area locations in which CSA/FM Class 1, Zone 1 ATEX II 2 G EExd and IECex ratings are required. The proprietary software includes new features that minimize COe cell degradation for improved reliability with fewer calibrations. The OCX8800 now also supports Foundation Fieldbus and HART Communication. (www.emersonprocess.com)
