What exactly is the Welker® SCHS Sample Conditioning Heated System?
The overall function of this unit is to accurately condition a flowing gas stream (by managing pressure and temperature) and to protect the analyzer from liquids.
This three stage unit also known as a “Charlie Horse” is composed of a
3 Stage Protection System:
Stage 1: Liquid Eliminating Probe- utilizes an integrated liquid and sediment filtration to properly condition gas for the analyzer.
Stage 2: Heated Regulator- accurate sample heat retention before the point of regulation to mitigate the Joule-Thomson effect* and prevents the gas composition from being altered.
Stage 3: Automatic Liquid Shut-Off- Contains a ball, where in the presence of liquid shuts off the system for analyzer preservation.
These 3 components can be sold separately or together as one exceptional unit.
* Joule-Thomson Effect- is the temperature change of a real gas or liquid, when it is forced through a valve or porous plug while kept insulated so no heat is exchanged with the environment.
