30 years of industrial combustion monitoring excellence

Jul 08 2024

The ACF5000 gas analyser from ABB, which was the first multi-component turnkey emission monitoring system to use Fourier-Transform InfraRed (FTIR) spectroscopy, is celebrating thirty years since its launch in 1994. Thanks to its built-in FTIR technology, which is a technique used to procure an infrared spectrum of gas emissions, the analyser measures up to fifteen components simultaneously, with the highest levels of reliability and precision possible.

The ACF5000 system is now in its fourth generation and has been manufactured in Frankfurt since its introduction thirty years ago. It helps industrial organisations by measuring the lowest concentrations of gases from industrial combustion processes.  This versatile, drift-free gas instrument measures exhaust gases from industrial chimneys in some of the most demanding locations including chemical plants, waste incinerators and cement kilns among many others.

Since the first model was rolled out, the ACF500 has undergone regular performance improvements. The current version of the ACF5000 has been designed and developed for expandability, so it can be adjusted to suit the operators’ ever-changing needs. Introducing mandatory components or changing emission limits can be added by a simple software upgrade. These changes are often created by updated legislation for environmental monitoring; lower concentrations of a growing number of pollutants need to be measured from combustion processes. Industrial plants are strictly monitored and must comply with ever-more stringent regulations; the ACF5000 is the ideal, market-leading fit to ensure that they are operating by those evolving requirements.
