Alarm full detection RN 6002 in wood gasifier reactor at 600°C

The Challenge

Our customer required a full detection in a wood gasifier reactor. The core of the plant is a reactor that produces the gas for the conversion into electricity by cooking wood chips. The particular challenge are the temperatures of up to 600°C. Above, tar condensates can damage the function of the measurement system.
