Biogas analysis with the ProCeas® system
After many years of good cooperation between Waga Energy and AP2E, a DURAG GROUP company, the French energy company once again presented us with a challenge: in the field of waste management, Waga Energy needed a new measurement solution for the biogas purification process. The most important criteria in the selection of the system included a very fast response time, high sensitivity and repeatability.
After successful tests, the customer decided to again cooperate with AP2E and to use the ProCeas® system for multicomponent gas analysis. Today, a total of 15 units are in use at waste management companies throughout France for the biogas purification process designed by Waga Energy. Along with each of the 15 systems, a ProCeas® system is installed. Thanks to a multiplexing unit, they can be used at different stages of the purification process to measure CH4, CO2, H2S, H2O and O2.
The ProCeas® biogas analyzers are impressive, particularly with regard to the following features:
- Quality of measurement
Laser measurement technology implies low cross sensitivities and good reproducibility as well as low detection limits.
- Multigas analysis
A single analyzer can monitor multiple gases, even in the ppb range.
- Low maintenance costs
Due to the low drift over a longer period of time, no regular calibration is required.
- Fast response time
Due to the patented low-pressure sampling and the small volume of the measuring cell, the analyzer requires only a small amount of sample.
