Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Biogas Applications

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Application: Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to the flammable nature of Methane, and the risk of asphyxiation, most plants feature ambient air monitoring to protect personnel from any unplanned accumulation of leaked gas.

Methane gas leak detection

by Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd.     based in Karmiel, ISRAEL

Methane emissions from oil and natural gas systems is primarily the result of normal operations or system disruptions. These hazardous emissions can be cost-effectively reduced by upgrading technologies or equipment, and by improving operations. However, in order to do so, one must be able to detect and identify the existence of a fugitive gas leak. Opgal`s EyeC Gas Thermal Imager for gas leak detection, is one of the most advanced cameras used to detect leaks. Thus, it becomes a required tool in mitigating and reducing fugitive emissions of methane gas.

Geosynthetic Lining for Highway and Civil Applications

by CETCO     based in Hoffman Estates, ILLINOIS (USA)

GCL can be used in highway and civil applications such as at airport de-icing facilities used to remove ice build up on the surfaces of planes. During the application process, glycol-based de-icing fluids can leak into local stormwater runoff, potentially causing pollution. CETCO GCLs were found compatible with de-icing fluid (glycol diluted 50/50 with water). GCLs can also be used to line roadway drainage swales for containment and prevent excessive percolation, thereby minimizing potential for groundwater contamination. Another example of using GCL in civil and highway applications is using the liner to contain acid rock and prevent runoff from entering the local water supply.

Gas Detection Solutions for Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Safety

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a very useful chemical used in a variety of industries. However, HF is highly toxic with potential fatal consequences with exposure to humans, so facilities that make or use HF should exercise great care. Nevertheless, there is always the risk of leaks from process elements such as valves, pump seals and storage vessels. Tanker loading, transporting and unloading operations also provide opportunity for HF releases. Industrial processes that make or use HF typically have arrays of point sensors distributed throughout the unit. However, these sensors are maintenance intensive and have relatively slow response times. In addition, a point sensor will not detect an HF release unless it is located directly in the area of that release. Electrochemical HF sensors also respond to chlorine, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide, resulting in false alarms.

SF6 Leak Detection

by LumaSense Technologies, Inc.     based in Santa Clara, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) in the Power Utility Industry. Monitoring Sulfur Hexafluoride in the Power Utility Industry The SF6 Leak Detector 3434i from LumaSense offers an unmatched combination of performance and convenience. Based on the company’s Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) technology, the system offers highly accurate, reliable and stable quantitative gas analysis and detection. The growing environmental requirements and pressures regarding the use of SF6 make LumaSense’s system a coveted tool designed for everyday use. The system is able to measure the total concentration of the SF6 gas in an enclosed area, where the switchgear (or other SF6 filled equipment) is tested. Although only the total amount leaked is required by today’s standards, it is also advantageous to be able to pin point the leaks. This makes it easier to improve the integrity of the equipment. The SF6 Leak Detector system meets all of requirements for confined area such as substation Monitoring.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for phosgene monitoring

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in serviced equipment may be dangerous to maintenance personnel. Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers are ideal tools to monitor point sources of phosgene. The measurement technology has high specificity, may be operated continuously, and has a fast response time.

Reduce biofilm formation

by LG Sonic     based in Zoetermeer, NETHERLANDS

In many industrial or professional applications where water is being stored, biofilm may grow. The growth of biofilm can damage the installations and reduce efficiency of the circuit. A biofilm can grow certain substrates which can be found in water. When temperatures are high, for example in cooling towers, a matrix of different micro- organisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae can grow very rapidly causing the formation of a biofilm on certain surfaces submerge in water. During the formation of this biofilm, certain micro organisms starts producing extra cellular polymeric substances (EPS) which reinforce the biofilm structure.

Variable frequency drive controls AC motors

by Variable Frequency Drives     based in NSW, AUSTRALIA

Consider integrating a variable frequency drive. It often can optimize energy efficiency by enabling you to match motor speed to the demands of the system. Look for opportunities, for example, to replace throttle valves or dampers used to restrict flow. However, a variable frequency drive may not make sense if the load on the motor is relatively small and constant — because speed changes will occur infrequently and any benefits from varying the speed will be negligible. So, thoroughly assess the system load profile to determine the scale and frequency of required speed changes before deciding about installing a variable frequency drive.
