Biogas is characterized based on its chemical composition and the physical characteristics which result from it. It is primarily a mixture of methane (CH4) and inert carbonic gas (CO2). However, the name “biogas” refers to a large variety of gases resulting from specific treatment processes, starting from organic waste – of industrial, animal or domestic origin.
Different sources of production lead to different specific compositions. The presence of CO2, H2S, NH3 and water make biogas very corrosive, and the use of adapted materials for handling is essential. The composition of the gas issued from a biogas digester depends on the substrate, on its organic matter load, and the feeding rate of the digester.
The LGD F200 provides industry leading sensitivity combined with fast response and a highly selective measurement. The technology is most suitable for the continuous monitoring of the purity, prior the biogas gas feed into the gas network.
Axetris' LGD advantages:
- Linearity over a large measuring range
- High selectivity
- High stability
