Industrial gas company Air Products, Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, USA, will highlight its new gas density sensor at POWDERMET2019, the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, to be held June 23-26 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. The new sensor is designed to help heat treaters to achieve production efficiencies in a variety of furnaces, for hydrogen concentration measurement on the hot zone and cooling zone for nitrogen-hydrogen atmospheres.

Air Products’ gas density sensor continuously measures the hydrogen percentage of the furnace atmosphere, enabling heat treaters to optimise the hydrogen concentration needed to produce quality parts. By continuously measuring and controlling the furnace atmosphere, the sensor is expected to help heat treaters reduce costs and comply with regulatory requirements and industry standards, such as NADCAP and CQI-9.

Air Products’ gas density sensor reportedly offers a compact design which enables it to be installed quickly either in-situ or in sampling lines together with other sensors. The sensor also allows for additional capabilities such as process advisor, local alarms on upset process conditions, and predictive maintenance.

In addition to gases, equipment and technology solutions, Air Products’ technical specialists, who will be on-hand on the company’s booth during POWDERMET2019, can provide applications knowledge and consulting services for a variety of processes, including powder production, sintering, heat treating, inerting, and Additive Manufacturing.
