For nearly 100 years the name UNION Instruments stands for high-performance measurement technology, outstanding accuracy of measurement, quality and maximum security.
UNION Instruments GmbH is a Germany based manufacturer of devices and systems in gas measurement technology with a global approach, e.g.
- Calorimeter CWD determine the calorific characteristics of combustion gases like heating and calorific value, Wobbe index, air requirement in sewage plants or in glass and ceramic industry
- Multi-Gasanalyzers INCA serve for continuous determination of components in natural and bio-gases
- Pressure and temperature measuring devices DPK / ESS serves for measurement of gas and water pressure in supply networks
- Service, Engineering and customized solutions
The company headquarters are in Karlsruhe and Lübeck. In both locations, departments for development and production are active; the focus in Karlsruhe is on devices for calorimetry, in Lübeck for gas analyzers.
Sales activities in many countries indicate UNION Instruments' extensive and ever increasing presence on the markets. The related services are assumed by authorized distributors - by now all over the world.
Glasstec is the world’s largest trade fair for glass production and glass processing which takes place every two years in Düsseldorf, Germany. This year, UNION Instruments has participated for the second time at glasstec with its own booth.
Many national and international visitors to our booth have confirmed, that our devices are needed in this market segment and provide valuable services. A quote from Mr. Jochum, Companie de Saint-Gobain : “For years, we are very satisfied with your devices.”
UNION Instruments attended the 61st ISA Analysis Division Symposium in Galveston, USA, in April 2016 with the exhibition of the CWD2005. One of the key topics of the symposium was the new and tightened EPA regulation regarding flare monitoring and control in the U.S. hydrocarbon and chemical industries. According to EPA, online gas chromatographs and calorimeters are first choice to determine and provide the required analytical data of the flare gas composition.
During the Symposium, flare specialists of leading petrochemical companies were very interested in the CWD2005 and its technical highlights, as this calorimeter is a direct reading, Wobbe-type calorimeter. It determines the required energy content of flare gas directly and does not (as indirect, CARI-type calorimeter do) need any correlation factors or additional calibration gases to reach the required 2% accuracy and/or to include gas components like carbon monoxide or hydrogen in the measurement. Especially suitable for flare gas controlling in explosive areas are the CWD2005 DPC and the CWD2005 SPC of UNION Instruments.
Delta Instrument LLC, UNION Instruments representative in the US, has already intensively picked up this promising marketing opportunity.
