Renewable Gas Analysis: Fast Biogas Analysis is Critical for Plant Optimization

November 19, 2018

An online mass spectrometer allows operations to cut costs, increase production, and maintain a safe working environment by monitoring multiple stages of RNG production. Live readings of the raw gas composition enable real-time process adjustments to maximize up-time and on-spec product gas yields. In addition, the analyzer can also be used to monitor odorization and provide automated updates of the BTU content of waste (tail) gas sent to the flare or thermal oxidizer. The mass spectrometer typically reports live updates of methane, carbon dioxide, air, non-methane organic compounds, siloxanes, and sulfur for increasing process efficiency, and for identifying leaks in the upstream off-gas supply lines.
