New technology enables biogas optimization

By Chemical Engineering |

Vaisala

The MGP261 is a new Ex-certified inline multigas measurement instrument that enables biogas plant operators to optimize the production of biogas in real time, and thereby derive greater value from biowaste. The MGP261 multigas probe is said to be the world’s first in-situ biogas instrument measuring multiple gases in demanding processing conditions. The instrument combines methane, carbon dioxide and humidity measurements with the company’s patented infrared Carbocap sensors in a single-gas sample cell directly inside the biogas pipeline. The MGP261 is certified for use in Ex Zone 0 and 1. This offers significant advantages over extractive gas analyzers, which require auxiliary gas-sampling pumps and gas-drying equipment. — Vaisala Oyj, Vantaa, Finland
