Endothermic

The effectiveness of the catalyst is measured by the CH4 content. Less than 0.5% is an indication of properly functioning catalyst. Higher concentrations indicate the necessity for either conditioning or replacement.
Measuring the level of CO in the carrier gas allows for correction of the % Carbon reading at the furnace.

Heat Treat Conventional

Furnace atmosphere Carbon potential (% C) can be verified with the PGA 3510
Measuring Carbon Monoxide (CO) allows for adjustment of the COF/PF parameters to fine tune the % Carbon calculation in the furnace
Measuring Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) can show possible problems (i.e. sooting, water leaks, air leaks, and radiant tube leaks)
Too much free Methane (CH4) could be an early indication of a furnace problem

Heat Treat Nitrogen/Methanol Endo

The carbon monoxide (CO) level in the furnace atmosphere indicates the effectiveness of the cracking of the methanol. Equilibrium of this reaction
CH3OH --> CO + 2H2 is temperature dependent
Furnace atmosphere carbon potential (% C) can be verified with the PGA 3510
Measuring carbon monoxide (CO) allows adjustment of the COF/PF parameters to fine tune the % Carbon calculation in the furnace
