In these days, discharge of green house gases and the management of municipal solid waste continue to be the major challenge especially in the growing economics. But these are the resources that can be converted into the green energy. From the process of biodegradation, a biogas is released which consists of methane and carbon dioxide. Many countries have conducted the research in biogas technology to reduce the green house effects. Normally, biogas or landfill gas is produced from the decomposition of waste, carcasses, decaying plans and more. While producing the biogas, there is a need of measuring it to balance the gas field. For this purpose, the landfill gas analyzer is used.
Uses of biogas analyzer
With the help of landfill gas analyzer measures the gas flow and calculates the calorific value of the gas. There are so many brands of the analyzers are available in the market and they can be used for recording, monitoring and also for finding the gas rates in the gas field.
When the produced gas is being burned for the power or for the carbon credits, it is very important to know in advance what the specific makeup of the gas is. Knowing these details is very essential when it is taken on the permanent basis. For this reason, the analyzer system is needed somewhere between the output of the gas supply line and the input of the receiving process.
- This analyzer lets you know the percent by volume reading the methane and carbon dioxide levels.
- The readings of the oxygen level on the analyzer is useful for determining whether there is any inbound air leak in the system.
- When the analyzer is embedded with the carbon monoxide analysis, it could be useful for detecting the subsurface fire.
Of course, the landfill gas analyzer is offered in the different models and they have the excellent specifications to offer the best needs. They are also equipped with some other facilities as follows.
- Oxygen by electrochemical sensor
- Methane by infra red detector
- Carbon dioxide by infra red detector
- Hydrogen sulfide by electrochemical sensor
- Carbon monoxide by infra red detector
