BlueSens - Model Yieldmaster - Automated BMP determination
The BMP (biochemical methane potential) test system „Yieldmaster“ is a sophisticated and modular analysis system. In its basic setup it consists of a gas bottle connected via tubing to BlueVCount, precision gas volume measurement device. It measures up to 80ml/min with a resolution of 1ml and consists of a volume measurement cell as well as temperature and pressure sensor. The volume measured of every single device is given as norm volume. Humidity can be compensated when necessary. The basic setup can be extended to also measure the gas concentration. BCP gas analyzers can be added for determination of CH4, CO2, H2, or O2. Direct installation at the fermentation vessel enables highly precise results and headspace corrections according to VDI 4630. Kinetic investigations of different substrate are feasible. Additional equipment like water bath, stirring, different glass reactors (250-5000ml), pH electrodes and pumps may be connected and controlled applying BlueVIS.
