Sensor for Biogas

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

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 (CH4), and the risk of asphyxiation, most plants feature ambient air monitoring to protect personnel from any unplanned accumulation of leaked gas. CH4 is the gas component fuel, which is the intended end product of the anaerobic digestion process. In biogas plants, the concentration of CH4 in a working plant varies between 50%-75%, which is well above the Upper Explosive Limit (UEL).

Perimeter Ambient Air Monitoring

by Cerex Monitoring Solutions, LLC.     based in Atlanta, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Cerex Multi-Gas Open Path Analyzers are available in both FTIR and UVDOAS technologies to meet specific requirements for perimeter ambient air quality monitoring, leak detection, fugitive emissions monitoring and ambient air quality monitoring. Cerex multi-gas analyzers offer significant advantages over single gas analyzer arrays, electro-chemical sensor arrays and time integrated air sampling hardware

Industrial solutions for air quality monitoring

by Advantic Sistemas y Servicios S.L     based in Alcobendas, SPAIN

To protect humans and the environment from damage by air pollution, it is of the utmost importance to measure the levels of pollutants in the air. Real time monitoring of dangerous gases is particularly interesting in hazardous areas, as the conditions can change dramatically very quickly, with serious consequences. ADVANTICSYS employs its knowledge in wireless sensor networks to develop customized solutions for our customers.

Fugutive Emissions Measurement

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

Emission Measurement – An estimate of the total fugitive emissions from a site can be determined using environmental data, EPA gas dispersion models, and GasFinder2 sensor data.

Portable Leak Detection

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

GasFinder2 can be used as a portable open path gas sensor to survey a large site relatively quickly. Areas of elevated gas concentration can be bracketed using shorter path lengths in order to locate leaking valves, flanges or fittings.

Airport Environmental Monitoring

by Chelsea Technologies Group     based in West Molesey, UNITED KINGDOM

Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

Gas Detection Solutions for GHG Monitoring

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

Most sources of fugitive emissions are from multiple points rather than single point sources. So, open path area or perimeter monitoring provides more meaningful fugitive emissions data than an array of point sensors or a program of grab sampling. Point measurements may underestimate emissions because of missing locations with high gas concentrations, or conversely overestimate because they are located in areas of high concentrations. Grab sampling programs typically check only a small percentage of potential leak locations and extrapolate results to an entire facility. Wide margins of uncertainty are associated with such extrapolations. Open path monitoring provides continuously updated, real-time, integrated emissions across a facility boundary.This provides a complete picture of the fugitive emissions across that boundary,enabling identification of specific operations and times that give rise to higher emissions, and so enabling these emissions to be properly managed and controlled.

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.

Emissions testing for industrial boilers and burners

by Testo Inc.     based in Sparta, NEW JERSEY (USA)

Industrial boilers and burners have their own unique characteristics. When an unexpectedly high CO is detected, the Testo 350 will automatically adjust to the situation, keeping the sensor protected at all times. Don`t worry about climbing and removing the probe from the stack, just hit the fresh air button. The measurements of O2, CO, NO and SO2, combined with automatic calculations (CO2, efficiency, excess air), provide fast tuning solutions. The 350`s compact design is better for working on a platform or small space. The automatic zero pressure measurement is ideal to monitor flow or draft induction. With a pitot tube you can quickly measure velocity and determine mass flow even during long term testing. The Testo 350 makes reporting in lbs/hour easy!
