Combustion system, if not used properly will consume more fuel leading to higher operating cost and emission of polluting gases like CO2, CO, NOx, SOx. SUPERGAS helps manufacturing units carry out Flue Gas Analysis to determine efficiency of their combustion systems and adherence to statutory norms. Regular checks of emitted flue gases make it easier for manufacturing units to detect inefficiencies early.
About Flue Gas Analysis
The Flue Gas Analysis is an effective way to gather reliable combustion data for analyzing and optimizing combustion efficiency of a system. Based on the result of the analysis, the combustion system’s air-fuel ratio is reset to bring it close to stoichiometric combustion. It also helps measure and monitor manufacturing unit’s adherence to the prescribed statutory pollution limits. By doing so, you save 1% - 2 % of fuel for every 10% reduction in excess air.
How does our Flue Gas Analysis work?
We make use of the Flue Gas Analyzer which is a calibrated electronic instrument that measures the concentration of various gases emitted by the manufacturing units. Emitted gas samples are collected from the testing port opening of the chimney and processed through the Flue Gas Analyzer to measure the concentrations of Excess Air, Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Oxides of Sulphur (SOx) and Nitrogen (NOx), and flue gas temperature. The analyzer detects any deviations from the optimal range for a given combustion system and provides information to adjust the burners for optimum combustion.
We recommend that the Flue Gas Analysis test be undertaken once in every 6 months to ensure effective and optimal functioning of the combustion system. Our trained service specialists will perform the test in the presence of your authorized personnel. There will be zero downtime during the analysis, and a report will be provided to you within 7 days.
Benefits of our FGA
• Higher Energy and Cost Savings – By optimizing combustion efficiency you save more on energy and costs

One of the key benefits of Flue Gas Analysis is that it gauges your combustion system to run at its optimal efficiency leading to reduced energy bills and more savings. Simultaneously, you can also reduce your carbon footprint because of improved combustion. Regular monitoring of flue gas emissions help you monitor harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, and caution you to reset the system before it poses any threat.
What is Thermography?
• Thermography is a technique of analyzing the thermal characteristics of an object from its infrared image, captured through non contact thermal imaging device.
• Infrared thermography allows us to see heat energy radiated by objects (Both cold and hot bodies emit this type of energy).
How Thermography is Useful?
• Temperature is one of the first observable parameters that can indicate the condition of operating electrical equipment.
Heat is a by-product of all work whether is it electrical, mechanical or chemical.
• Thermal energy not in control will cause failure in the equipment.
• Thermography allows us to detect the temperature of the object from the thermal energy emitted.
In Switchyard: Corona has the potential to increase the temperature, which can result in system failure. To detect this thermography survey is required.
For Transformers:Infrared imaging of the transformer can often detect oil level and radiator convection cooling problems.
For the Batteries: can detect the individual faulty cells by measuring the temperature without contact,
At the Electrical Panels:Infrared thermography is used to perform Preventive Maintenance inspections-
Broadly the following can be observed-
• Loose connections / terminations,
• Oxidation at the cable termination points,
• Dust deposition at terminations,
• Defective lug crimping, overloaded or imbalanced circuits,
• Faulty breakers, damaged switches, faulty fuses and other hazardous electrical conditions.

Here’s how to get better results with temperature mapping for your warehouse or cold storage facility:
1. Selecting Data Loggers – Make sure you choose loggers that offer the right features for your facility and operations. Common features to consider include storage capacity, sampling rate, temperature range, physical size and battery life. Integrated firmware and software can also help make sample collection and other activities easier, so take your time to find the right fit for your specific application and analysis requirements.
2. Sensor Distribution & Spacing – No two storage facilities are exactly alike, so arrange sensing points along a 3-dimensional grid based on the length, width and height of the space you’re mapping. This grid needs to be spaced correctly, since temperature sensors will only take measurements at specific points, not an area. For effective analysis, make sure enough sensors or sample points are distributed around the space.
3. Locate Critical Mapping Points – Controlling temperature across large, open facilities is difficult, so look for problem areas or spots that are most vulnerable or likely to cause issues. These include areas near ceilings, external walls, windows, doors, HVAC ducts, machinery, etc. Poor storage planning and air circulation can also cause certain spots to heat up, so make sure that temperatures at these points are measured carefully.
4. Record the Location of Sensors – Document sensor locations properly, so you can check if faulty units may be causing unexpected results. You could do this by assigning and listing the serial numbers and locations of data loggers, naming or labeling them according to where they’re located, or maintaining a map with the location of each data logger. This also helps you recharge temperature sensors and read data more easily.
5. Upload & Review Data – If you want to locate problem areas in your facility, make sure that you review and upload data collected during the sampling period carefully. The software you’re using can be used to analyze the logged data and calculate the mean kinetic temperature as well as the minimum and maximum temperature of the storage facility and products.
6. Record & Repeat Every Step – After temperature mapping has been completed and documented, repeat the entire process to ensure there are no errors. Try to keep data loggers in the same position where they were placed the first time, since this will help you evaluate the accuracy of your temperature map. The process should also be repeated every time you make modifications to the environment or stock.
This is the most common of all commissioning processes and the final piece in the puzzle. It is the ‘setting to work’ of a ‘finely tuned’ air-conditioning system that provides a fully functional building.
And it is a proficiently commissioned system that lends itself to being a cost efficient building throughout its building life!
Needless to say, it’s all about the bigger picture and the whole process to get to this point is a bit like decorating a house. It needs the preparation before hand to help provide a simple path through the commissioning phase. It is therefore pre-commissioning activities such as commissionability reviews, ductwork leakage testing and pipework pre-commissioning flushing that prepares a system and smoothes the way for commissioning so that it can be performed correctly and the acceptable tolerances are achieved.
Air and water balancing in essence, is such a simple process but as we all know, you can only proportionally distribute what quantity is available to you. So if there is a shortfall, a blockage or some other deficiency, it then becomes the experience of the Commissioning Engineer and his equipment that allows the problem to be identified, pinpointed and subsequently resolved.
To us, this is the difference between basic balancing of a system and the comprehensive commissioning of a system! So where everyone expects a system to be commissioned, it is generally a balanced system with deficiencies that they receive. At HVAC Solutions, we have the expertise, knowledge and experience to commission systems!

Recovering waste heat using compact heat exchangers is an effective way to increase energy efficiency in both new and existing plants. But not all heat is worth recovering. It all comes down to the possibilities of reusing the energy in an economical way.
The first step is to have a Heat Integration Audit performed by an Alfa Laval specialist. The audit investigates possibilities and presents the results in a feasibility report outlining the investment profitability estimate.
Finding the best opportunities
To find all the potential ways to create value from recovered heat, the energy system of the plant must be analyzed, as well as the processes, the cooling system and surrounding factors.
Often the best way to profit on recovered heat is less obvious than just saving fuel.
There are many parameters to take into account, some being:
• How is process heat generated? Where is the major part of the heat/energy used?
• What is the optimum load on the boilers/burners?
• How is electricity generated? Is there any spare capacity in the co-generation systems?
• Are there constraints in the cooling systems?
• Are there bottlenecks related to heating or cooling?
• Are possibilities to sell heat or electricity to neighbours?
Below the flow chart shows the basic systems found in most plants and is a good starting point when discussing how to get maximum results from reusing recovered energy.
