Projects that speak for themselves
With innovative solutions, reliable products and the expert knowledge of the DURAG GROUP, we’ve been helping customers all over the world achieve success for decades now. On this page you will find a selection of customer projects that we and our companies have successfully implemented. Discover applications from your industry, challenges similar to your situation and interesting solutions.
Aerosol and gas measurement above the clouds
The Sonnblick Observatory is located in an almost emission-free environment on the alpine mountain ridge. Climate-relevant, environment-specific questions are researched there – also with the help of the precise, robust and compact 24/7 condensation particle counter GRIMM CPC 5421.
Aerosol measurement on the glacier field Plateau Rosa
The AirQualifier EDM 264 from GRIMM AEROSOL TECHNIK is used in a government-funded aerosol research project in the Italian Alps. There, the influence of aerosols on climate change and glacier melt is being investigated.
Emission analysis technology for power plant in Estonia
The LaserCEM and the D-EMS 2020 environmental and process data management system were installed at the combined heat and power plant in the village of Iru, Maardu, Estonia. The plant is located within the metropolitan region of the Estonian capital Tallinn.
Measurement of hydrogen purity in the laboratory
In its state-of-the-art laboratory in Harfleur, SGS France uses AP2E's ProCeas® gas analyzer. In combination with other technologies, this enables a comprehensive analysis of hydrogen purity.
Aerosol measurement on the research vessel METEOR
The METEOR is one of the largest German research vessels. For its scientific expeditions, the AirQualifier EDM 264 was installed on board, a mobile PM monitor from GRIMM AEROSOL TECHNIK, a member of the DURAG GROUP.
Sustainable energy use with new pilot burner system
A newly developed pilot burner system from Danish manufacturer Sirius Energy uses HEGWEIN‘s pilot burner and consumes just three kilos of wood pellets instead of 400 liters of heavy fuel oil per startup.
Fine dust measurement in the „green port“ of Koper
Koper is the most important seaside town in Slovenia. To protect people, the environment and nature, the local University of Primorska has been carrying out extensive fine dust measurements there on behalf of the port authority since 2000.
Innovative measurement technology for biogas purification
The powerful ProCeas® system for multi-gas analysis provides impressive services at 15 French waste management plants operated by Waga Energy.
Gas analysis at Korean IGCC power plant
Korea Western Power Co. Ltd. (KOWEPO) relies on AP2E's advanced gas analysis technology at one of its power plants in Korea.
Tunnel monitoring system in Rio de Janeiro
A complete one-stop tunnel monitoring system ensures the smooth flow of traffic on the 23-kilometer Transolímpica express route.
Video and thermography for grate firing
Modern combustion chamber cameras with thermography and analysis software ensure greater efficiency and higher availability at a German biomass cogeneration plant.
Measurement of concentrations and gas flows of greenhouse gases
We were able to convince the Leibniz Center for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) in Müncheberg with our compact and yet powerful gas analyzers.
The Berlin Air Quality Monitoring Network (BLUME)
Our modern EDM 180 aerosol spectrometers help to detect air pollution in Berlin and ensure good air quality in the German capital.
Maintenance agreement with Enel Produzione SpA
For many years now, we have successfully taken care of the maintenance of two mercury analyzers at an Italian power plant.
Emission monitoring at a refinery
It’s not only our robust dust and volume flow measuring devices that make a good impression at this Egyptian plant. Our on-site service is also welcome.
Indoor Aerosol Measurement
Research groups at the Purdue University in Indiana, USA, collaborated with us to conduct novel real-time measurements of indoor aerosol concentrations and particle size distributions.
Emission reduction with tailor-made ignition systems
With more than 150 ignition units, some of which were specially manufactured, we supported the energy modernization of three power plants in the United States. A major project.
Researching clouds as a climate factor
Our aerosol measurement technology helps to better understand the influence of clouds on climate change.
Mercury measurement in waste incineration plant
Mercury is a highly volatile heavy metal whose toxicity is well known. Reliable and continuous measurements of emissions are essential. This is an area in which we and our partners are very active – currently, for example, in the MIMOSA project.
Emission analysis on islands in the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean
For Électricité de France (EDF PEI & EDF SEI), the world’s second largest electricity producer, we implemented a large-scale project to monitor gas and dust emissions on three French overseas islands together with local partners.
Measurement of CO2 transport impurities
Since 2013, AP2E, a member of the DURAG GROUP, has been supplying innovative gas analyzers to the renowned Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) from Norway. In this case, the focus is on studies of CO2 transport and corrosion protection.
Optimization of burner operation in a refinery
Within a few weeks of commissioning, the customer achieved fuel savings and optimized operation of the burners with our video and thermography system.
Analysis of greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture
The National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAE) in France measures N2O and CH4 as part of its agricultural research using our high-precision measurement technology.
Preheating and ignition firing in a heating plant
In this application, a grate firing system for waste wood with 22 MW thermal output is ignited. HEGWEIN, a DURAG GROUP company, provided a compact and at the same time powerful solution for this.
