  • Page 16: Sample System

    1.4.4 Sample System Use of a sample system is mandatory with the XMTC. The design of the sample system depends on the conditions of the sample gas and the requirements of the application. In general, a sample system must deliver a clean, representative sample to the XMTC at a temperature, pressure and flow rate that are within acceptable limits.
  • Page 17: Typical Applications

    1.5 Typical Applications The XMTC can be used in a wide variety of industrial applications where it is necessary to measure the concentration of one component of a binary gas mixture. It can also be used in pseudo-binary gas mixtures where the ratio of concentrations of the background gas components remains constant, and in gaseous mixtures where the thermal conductivity of the gas of interest is significantly different from that of the background gas.
