Instrumentation and gas analysis for thermal energy

< return to the range

To be efficient, industrial facilities that produce thermal or electrical energy need reliable measurement solutions for their different systems: boilers, turbines, cogeneration power plants.  Choosing the right pressure or gas measurement instrument allow you to save energy and reduce emissions.


Measuring instruments and gas analyzers for the thermal energy and electricity productionFuji Electric measuring instruments support professionals in the thermal energy and electricity production during each phase of their production process in order to:

  • Reduce production cost
  • Increase yields,
  • Extend the service life of installations,
  • Guarantee the quality of the finished product.



A boiler is a closed container in which water or other liquids are heated or vaporized to provide steam or hot water to other equipment or facilities. Fire, high temperature gas or electricity are used as heat sources for boilers.



Water tube boiler

Two drums are arranged high and low, connected to each other by a number of water tubes, through which the water circulates. The tubes are heated by combustion gas to produce steam.

How to choose the instrumentation for the boiler?

Industrial boiler

Feed Water Control (FWC): keeps the water level in the drum constant.

Automatic Combustion Control (ACC): Controls fuel and air flow rates to improve combustion efficiency while ensuring safety and preventing pollution, and maintaining constant vapor pressure


stack and utilities

The chimneys allow the emission of combustion gases. The combustion gases are blown by a draft fan towards the chimney. They are then rejected by the chimney to be dispersed in the atmosphere. The height of the chimney should be determined taking into account the effect of weather conditions, surrounding geography and constructions, as well as the spread of regulated pollutants. This is why it is essential to have air pollution monitoring equipment.

How to choose the intrumentation for the chimney?

The production of electricity from fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) takes place by transforming thermal energy into electrical energy.

Steam turbine

A steam turbine uses high-temperature and high-pressure steam to rotate shafts of electric generator.

Cogeneration power plants (Combined heat and power plants)

Cogeneration is simultaneous production of electricity, by gas turbine which  runs by combustion of fuel, and by steam turbine which uses the wasted heat  from gas turbine. It is a highly efficient power generation system. Cogeneration plants can reach efficiency ratings higher than 50%. Environmental impacts can be further reduced by using LNG as fuel, because LNG emits no SOx nor dust  when combusted.

Gas turbine

A gas turbine, also referred to as "gas  turbine engine," is a internal combustion  engine fueled either with fuel oil or gas. The combustion gas drives a turbine to  generate electric power. Due to the high  output capacity, gas turbines are used to  supply power during peak.
