Instrumentation and gas analysis for thermal energy

To be efficient, industrial facilities that produce thermal or electrical energy need reliable measurement solutions for their different systems: boilers, turbines, cogeneration power plants.

Instruments for pressure measurement, flow measurement, level measurement, temperature measurement and gas analysis help you save energy and reduce emissions.

Instrumentation and gas analysis for thermal energy

Fuji 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
  • Reduce air pollution.


Industrial steam boiler

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 industrial 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.

Industrial chimneys and utilities

Industrial chimneys 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.

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, 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 (or gas turbine engine)

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.
