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 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).

The BevAlert Model 8900 provides direct measurement of Vinyl Chloride, Acetaldehyde, Methanol, and Benzene (VCAMB) in Carbon Dioxide. The instrument is utilized by Specialty Gas Manufacturers and the Food and Beverage Industry to monitor trace impurities in CO2 used in carbonated beverages.
Process control of a SO2 scrubber on a ship is a challenge due to wet and corrosive gases. In such environment, extractive gas sampling systems require high levels of maintenance in order to operate correctly. OPSIS monitoring system solves this by using an optical, non-contact, cross-duct technique. A light beam is sent across the duct or stack to be measured, and the captured light is sent through an optical fibre cable to an analyser. The analyser measures SO2, CO2 and NOx concentrations using UV and IR...
The BevAlert Model 8900 provides a total sulfur measurement for sulfur compounds in Carbon Dioxide. The measurement includes organic sulfides, Sulfur Dioxide, Carbonyl Sulfide, and Hydrogen Sulfide. The instrument is utilized by Specialty Gas Manufacturers and the Food and Beverage Industry to monitor sulfur compounds in CO2 used in carbonated beverages.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lasers are high power lasers, usually used for cutting of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. High-performance gas flow control is a key requirement for achieving high cutting performance with CO2 lasers. Gas flow control plays an important role for mixing key gases at a number of locations with a CO2 laser: Beam Generation: The gas mixture used as the emitting medium usually consists of CO2, He and N2. Most laser manufacturers specify a minimum required purity for the beam generation gas...
Determining levels of CO and CO2 and their respective ratio in the oxychlorination reactor contributes to overall process efficiency. The on-line analyzer system uses a selective CO/CO2 measurement by means of multi-wavelength infrared with automatic optical span possibility.
GasFinderFC can be configured to monitor CO and CO2 simultaneously, and combined with the short open path probe, can be set up across roads to monitor instantaneous emissions of these gases from vehicles passing through the beam. Gross polluters can be identified and their number plates photographed.
The BevAlert Model 8900 provides direct measurement of Acetaldehyde, Methanol, and Benzene (AMB) in Carbon Dioxide. The instrument is utilized by Specialty Gas Manufacturers and the Food and Beverage Industry to monitor trace impurities in CO2 used in carbonated beverages. The BevAlert Model 8900 employs a photoionization detector (PID). The AMB in the gas sample are physically separated using proprietary GC columns. A dual-column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and...
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.
The PetroAlert Model 8900 combines the selectivity of gas chromatography with the sensitivity, broad dynamic range, and hydrocarbon selectivity of a flame ionization detector (FID) providing fast analysis of C1-C5 hydrocarbons and Carbon Dioxide required in Mud Logging for Oil & Gas exploration. The PetroAlert Model 8900 uses a dual column configuration with timed backflush to vent which is used to strip off moisture and C6+ hydrocarbons. A pre-cut column is used in series with the analytical column. At...
Detecting CO2 impurities: Ammonia, Acetaldehyde, Benzene, Total Sulfur Content, Total Hydrocarbons, SO2, COS. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a commonly used additive in food and beverage industry (e.g. for soft drink, brewery, and champagne carbonation). Its fabrication process can lead to the presence of impurities such as aromatics, BTEX, ammonia, acetaldehyde, Total Hydrocarbons and sulfur compounds (Total Sulfur Content, SO2, COS, mercaptans...).
The BevAlert Model 8900 provides direct measurement of Acetaldehyde, Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylenes (ABTEX) in Carbon Dioxide. The instrument is utilized by Specialty Gas Manufacturers and the Food and Beverage Industry to monitor trace volatile organic compounds in CO2 used in carbonated beverages.
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.
The process control of a CO2 capture plant needs good and reliable detection of gas phase NH3 and CO2. 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.
