    Methane gas leak detection

    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.

    Methane Sensing for Coal Mining

    Application: The majority (around 60%) of the coal seams currently being extracted worldwide are so far underground that open cast mining cannot take place and, therefore, underground mining techniques need to be used. Consequently, workers have to enter and work in confined spaces. One of the major problems that this creates is the dangers from Methane (CH4) gas which occurs in Mine gas.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for process control

    Gas monitors controlling heat treatment of metals. Endothermic gas is a mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and other gases that is required for hardening or carburising of steel. By carefully controlling the amounts of each gas and the temperature in the treatment furnace, the steel surface can be hardened to provide long lasting components such as gears and tools.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for biogas

    Fast, accurate and reliable measurement of CO2 and CH4 concentration. Methane and CO2 concentration measurements are a key part of the evaluation of the anaerobic digestion process. Too high or too low gas concentration levels can indicate a change in the efficiency of the fermentation process. AD process control systems measure the Methane content (and often the CO2 content) of the gas stream to control or evaluate the AD process and warn of problems. Edinburgh Sensors provide high performance OEM gas detectors that are able to give fast, accurate and reliable measurements of both CO2 and Methane concentrations.

    Measurement of methane, methanol and ethanol for the biomass monitoring for biofuels.

    The Series 8900 provides direct measurement of methane, methanol, and ethanol for the biofuel industry. The Series 8900 GC employs a flame ionization detector (FID). The methane, methanol, and ethanol 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 heavier gases. At sample injection, a fixed volume of sample is carried through the pre-cut column. The backflush is timed so that primarily the MME and other similar compounds continue on to the analytical column. Contaminants are then backflushed to vent. Methane, methanol, and ethanol are separated from potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.

    Noise monitoring solutions for noise source identification

    Before you can determine what design changes are appropriate to reduce the noise emitted by a product, you need to be able to characterise it in terms of: Spectral content: The location of the dominant sources. The relative importance of dominant sources. Noise Source Identification employs a number of tools to perform such a characterisation.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for mining

    Fast, accurate and reliable measurement of CH4. The extraction of coal releases methane gas, which can mix with the air in a mine to form a hazard due to its flammability. Ventilation with fresh air from the surface is used to dilute the methane and reduce the risk of explosion. Monitoring of the methane content of the stale air exiting the mine allows the amount of ventilation to be controlled. Although our sensors are not ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres they are suitable for monitoring air containing methane concentrations below the lower explosive limit. Our OEM products can be built into equipment which is approved for use in the monitoring of mine exhaust gas and similar applications.

    Oxygen monitoring from aerobic and anaerobic for biodegradation tests

    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.

    Sensor for Biogas

    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).

    Gas Detection Solutions for Pipeline Leak Detection

    Natural gas pipeline owners require improved routine monitoring of pipelines for safety, economic and regulatory reasons. Leaking natural gas can cause explosions leading to loss of life and property. Loss of product through undetected leaks dramatically reduces a pipeline operator’s profitability.

    Gas analysis & monitoring system for soil degassing

    The migration of magma towards the surface in a volcano is usually accompanied by the release of gas that was previously dissolved in the magma itself. In an open conduit volcano, most of the gas escapes through the main conduits of the volcano and then through the craters. However, a significant proportion (approximately 10%) of the total quantity of gas can escape laterally through faults and fractures that are normally present in the flanks of a volcano. Therefore, increases in the amount of gas emitted usually indicate the initial stages of magmatic migration towards the surface.

    Measurement solution for siloxane measurement in land-fill gas via FTIR

    What are siloxanes?

    The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas generated is a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds are often present in products such as shampoo and cosmetics, as well as industrial products and lubricants, and they move into land-fill. These volatile compounds find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes.

    Measurement of methane and non-methane hydrocarbons for environmental air quality.

    The Model 8900 Methane/Non-Methane Analyzer provides direct measurement of Methane and Non-Methane Hydrocarbons. This instrument is utilized in ambient air monitoring networks around metropolitan areas, fence-line monitoring at industrial plants and hazardous waste sites, and in the production of high purity industrial gases. Methane is a naturally occurring gas generated from the decomposition of biological materials and industrial activity. Since Methane is not considered a pollutant it is the Non-Methane hydrocarbons that are of primary concern.
