The Unburned Carbon Online Analyser 2200 (UBC-2200) provides the operators with automatic and continuous online information about the amount of unburned carbon (UBC) in post-combustion fly ash as well as physical samples for further laboratory testing.
The UBC-2200 differs from the UBC-2000 as it utilizes microwave technology which is especially suited for power plants combusting coal with a higher variance in properties due to sourcing from different coal mines.
The UBC-2200 can be placed in the flue gas duct close to the combustion zone allowing the information regarding burn-out efficiency to be used directly in the boiler control room. In addition to the continuous measurement, the UBC-2200 can direct a physical sample into a bottle enabling laboratory testing.
The UBC 2200 has one analyser unit connected to one control unit.
The UBC 2200 D has two analyser unit connected to one control unit
The UBC-2200 consist of a control unit with air-condition, an analyser unit and a collector unit.
Microwave technology provides highly accurate measurements for both brown and hard coal and is compatible with coal of varying quality. The measurement principle is based on the established fact that microwave transmission properties relates to the amount of UBC in the ash sample. The ash sample is analysed in a microwave resonance chamber, and its effect on the signal output is used to determine the UBC content of the ash.
The period of a sampling cycle depends on the flow of fly ash, and ranges from 3 to 15 minutes. The samples are obtained before the fly ash reaches the electrostatic precipitator, which gives a faster response time compared to traditional instruments. This rapid data acquisition allows for use directly in the boiler control, or as key parameters for the operators to quickly adjust the combustion process.
By allowing the samples to be either purged or collected in a sampling bottle, the operator may choose to collect samples after the analysis, which can be used for laboratory purposes.

The Sampling Unit
The pumping power is provided by utilising the pressure difference between the ambient and inside of the duct. The pressure difference drives an adjustable ejector. This design means that extraction velocity automatically adapts to changes in the flow rate in the duct.
The measurement principle is based on the established fact that microwave transmission properties relates to the amount of UBC in the ash sample. The fly ash sample is placed in a microwave resonance chamber, and its effect on the signal output of is used to determine the UBC content of the ash.
The Control Unit
The control unit undertakes the processing of the transducer signals and controls all functions of the individual UBC components. An operator’s control panel with display is located on the control cabinet front. The UBC-2200 can be fitted with different communication technologies e.g. Bluetooth, WIFI and LAN, and a remote access system is also implemented.
The UBC-2200 is also available for installation in the hopper using a different extraction mechanism.
