Carbon Dioxide (CO2) monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted in a number of ways. It is emitted naturally and through human activities like the burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is generated as a by-product of the combustion of fossil fuels or the burning of vegetable matter, among other chemical processes. Small amounts of carbon dioxide are emitted from volcanoes and other geothermal processes.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many industrialized countries. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless and tasteless gas caused by the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas to the human body, when inhaled it binds to hemoglobin, myoglobin, and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase reducing oxygen storage, transport and respiration in these organelles.

NDIR Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Monitoring

by LED Microsensor NT     based in Saint-Petersburg, RUSSIA

Carbon dioxide has a wide range of commercial uses, from the production of lasers to the carbonation of soft drinks. This gas has become a topic of interest because it is classified among the greenhouse gases, gases which impact the Earth's environment when they reach high concentrations in the atmosphere. We propose solutions for medical diagnostics (out-breath control) and for ecological monitoring (control of carbon dioxide, exhaust gases in the atmosphere).

Measurement of hydrogen sulfide & carbon disulfide in air for continous emission monitoring

by MOCON - Baseline     based in Lyons, COLORADO (USA)

The Series 8900 Hydrogen Sulfide and Carbon Disulfide Analyzer provides direct measurement of H2S and CS2 in ambient air. This instrument is utilized for continuous emission monitoring. The Series 8900 H2S and CS2 Analyzer employs a Photoionization detector (PID) as the sensing element. A dual column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier hydrocarbons. A pre-cut column is used in series with the analytical column. At sample injection a fixed volume of sample is carried to the pre-cut column. Backflush is timed so that only the H2S, CS2, and other similar components are eluted to the analytical column. Contaminants on the pre-cut column are backflushed to vent. H2S and CS2 are separated from potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.

Measurement solution for on-line carbon bed system

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

Commonly, activated carbon beds are used as abatement systems on plant, with emissions being reduced by adsorption onto the bed. The efficiency of any abatement system is critical to its operation, not just in ensuring emissions are reduced as much as possible, but an efficient bed has cost savings for the operator.

Continuous emissions monitoring for carbon capture and storage

by Enviro Technology Services plc     based in Stroud, UNITED KINGDOM

The process control of a CO2 capture plant needs good and reliable detection of gas phase NH3. Measuring NH3 is a challenge due to the corrosive environment and high concentrations of NH3. Several places in the process needs to be monitored and to transport the sample is difficult. A large dynamic range is needed as the NH3 concentration can vary between 15% volume and a few mg/m3. 

Haze Monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

The principle cause of regional and urban haze, or visibility impairment, is light extinction caused by fine particles, sulfates, organic and elemental carbon, nitrates and crustal matter. Particles between 0.1 and one micrometers in size are most effective at scattering light, in addition to being of greatest concern for human health.

Hydrocarbons monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Hydrocarbons are a family of organic chemicals consisting of carbon and hydrogen atoms arranged in a variety of ways. Hydrocarbons are found naturally in crude oil and are released into the environment with its combustion (power plants, home heaters etc).

Monitoring Raw Water Intake

by Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments, Inc.     based in Fresno, CALIFORNIA (USA)

The Situation: Hydrocarbons in water intake used for municipal drinking water and desalination systems are commonly limited to 1 part per million. Problem: Naturally occurring organics in raw water are typically treated with chemicals. Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzers in the water treatment system can alert technicians when some type of organic material is present but cannot differentiate between natural organics, such as algae or leaves and hydrocarbons. Solution: A fluorescence monitor can be configured for sensitivity to hydrocarbons, with no significant response to other organics. The TD-4100XDC has the highest sensitivity to hydrocarbons in raw water, has a low cost of ownership, and can be modified with Teflon, Monel, and other corrosion resistant materials for sea water environments.

CO2 / CO Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

CO (carbon monoxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) are generally measured to ensure process control. CO2 is the desired product and CO is undesired in combustion since it will explode in high enough concentrations. CO2 and CO concentrations can also be used to determine other process-specific efficiencies. Continuous emissions monitoring equipment that can be calibrated as a CO and CO2 analyzer is thereby essential for process control.

Water monitoring for laboratories

by GE Healthcare UK Limited     based in Little Chalfont, UNITED KINGDOM

Chemical purity of water is assessed for a wide variety of different chemicals depending on the type of water and applicable local legislation. 

Chemical analysis of water can include testing for nitrogen compounds, dissolved heavy metals, and total and dissolved organic carbon.

Common water monitoring applications include:

  • Determination of suspended solids in waterusing for example glass fiber filters.
  • Chemical analyses of for example heavy metals, dissolved organic carbons (DOC), and ions.
  • Microbiological analyses using membrane based microfiltration methods

Carbon Dioxide Monitoring for Indoor Air Quality

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Introduction: Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters is not only essential for the well-being and comfort of building occupants, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency. A multitude of parameters can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) from gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds to particulates, humidity and bacteria such as legionella. Carbon dioxide is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality since it is produced by people occupying the building. Carbon dioxide production is a function of the number, size and activity levels of the people present in the building. Local concentrations can therefore vary dramatically – for example when a meeting room is occupied, or while workers are on lunch or coffee breaks.

CH4 Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

CH4 (Methane) is a colorless, odorless natural gas that is used in a wide variety of industrial applications such as power generation and chemical production. It is also a byproduct of many biological and geological processes, fracking, and gas drilling. It is highly flammable and creates amounts of carbon monoxide as its combustion byproduct. Methane needs constant monitoring in waste water treatment (for co-generation) and to ensure proper process control (e.g. to determine burning efficiency). A quality CH4 analyzer that is able to provide continuous monitoring is a perfect solution for this.

Oxygen Monitoring from Aerobic and Anaerobic for Biodegradation Assessments

by Respirometer Systems and Applications, LLC     based in Springdale, ARKANSAS (USA)

Biodegradation tests involve testing samples in response to various parameters: dilution, nutrient addition, pH, temperature, and others. The pattern of oxygen uptake in aerobic tests; nitrogen gas production in anoxic denitrification tests; methane production in methanogenic tests; hydrogen production during glycolysis; and carbon dioxide production during fermentation reactions gives a measure of the rate and extent of biodegradation of the organic constituents of the test sample.
