SCION Instruments' turnkey solutions for quality flexible analysis of Greenhouse Gases

Mar 19 2019 Read 394 Times

The SCION Greenhouse Gas Analyser provides a turnkey solution for the analysis of the greenhouse gases methane carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide in stack or ambient air. With the addition of a PAL Combi-xt Headspace sampler, water, soil or organic material can also be analysed for greenhouse gases.
The analyser is configured with two chromatographic channels. Channel one is equipped with a TCD and an FID in series for the analysis of carbon dioxide and methane. The second channel is equipped with an ECD for the analysis of nitrous oxide. Optionally this channel can be configured for the analysis of chlorofluorohydrocarbons and/or sulphur hexafluoride.
SCION’s multi-channel 456 GC and state-of-the-art CompassCDS chromatography software form a powerful combination, ensuring ease of use and fast and reliable results. The SCION Greenhouse Gas Analyser not only incorporates proven GC hardware and software, it also is pre-loaded with analysis methods and documentation specific to the application. This makes the analyser very efficient and cost effective.
The standard configuration analyses carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide in stack and ambient air. When a PAL Combi-xt Headspace sampler is used, the
matrix can be extended with water, soil, and organic material. The application field can be extended to also analyse SF6 and CFCs.
Global warming, and is thought to be largely due to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide. These gases make the earth atmosphere recycle the heat coming from its surface, creating a “green-house” effect. Human activity is believed to increase the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and so there is an increasing need to measure these gases routinely in air. Furthermore, studies are undertaken to analyse the gases emitting from other sources such as water, soil and organic materials. The SCION Greenhouse Gas Analyser was developed to continuously measure greenhouse gases in various matrices.
