Before the establishment of ENOTEC, Fred Gumprecht worked for five years for Westinghouse Electric, realizing the huge potential of the InSitu oxygen analyzer, model 218. Therefore, it is not a surprise that the oxygen analyzer Oxitec 5000, developed by ENOTEC and used all over the world, is a continuous advance of the oxygen analyzer model 218 developed in the 70s by Westinghouse Electric.
The use of InSitu measurements (a measurement that is performed directly in the combustion gas, without the need for extraction, conditioning and sample treatment) enables a higher rate of response to any extraction, as well as, significantly reduces maintenance costs.

There are currently thousands of Oxitec measurement systems in operation in all types of power stations, combustion and process units. Despite its roots in the 70s, the continuous development of zirconium oxide measurement technique remains as top technology.
In 1987, electronic SME 1 unit was launched. This product was also continuously developed and updated over the years in order to include new technologies, now lying in the SME-5 version. Recognized for its liability and functions variety, the SME5 has an impressive hardware set of features (last generation microcontroller, high precision integrated circuits and a a large bright display) and software (self-diagnostic features) to enable intuitive handling and a comprehensive evaluation of its measurements.
In 2003, the ENOTEC COMTEC 6000 analyzer was presented for O2 (oxygen) and CO (fuels) measurements, as the first InSitu gas analyzer system for these applications.
This analyzer allows a more effective regulation of the burner and a fast diagnostic of combustion quality. The considerable cost reduction is possible due to the increase of measurement accuracy, energy saving and emissions reduction.

In 2004, the CEMTEC line was launched, integrating gas analyzers for a particularly difficult application - the analysis of combustion gases of the furnaces in cement and lime kilns.
The extremely high dust loading during production, for example, cement and lime, inevitably resulted in the depreciation of all the other analysis systems installed.
The high dustproof resistance of CEMTEC combined to the mechanical and pneumatic continuous cleaning of the probe, allows to perform combustion gas measurements with several months of maintenance intervals.

The AQUATEC 1000 H2O analyzer was introduced in 2007 and proved to be a versatile and valuable response for all problems related to humidity measurement. Whether used in dehydration processes to accelerate the drying process or to identify leakages in the recovery tubes, the application possibilities are numerous.
