Optimising and Protecting your Waste Water Treatment Plant with a Portable Analyser

Apr 05 2016

Waste water treatment provides the perfect platform for producing biogas and with a reliable feedstock, the biogas is often used to produce renewable energy. Biogas plants can generate £15,000* worth of energy in a day and so keeping the CHP running and the process optimised are critical to making a return on investment.

Portable and fixed monitoring equipment is used to keep plants running efficiently. A good portable gas analyser will measure CH4, CO2, O2 and H2S (up to 10,000ppm) and also has the capability to: measure flow and pressure and carry out daily checks at any point in the process to check for optimum CH4 levels, check that all H2S is being effectively removed by desulphurisation units and that there is no O2 in the gas that might damage CHP engines, and be used as a tool to check other equipment on site is reading correctly - a fixed gas analyser’s readings or perhaps a flow meter, giving the operator confidence that their system is working at its optimum level for as long as possible.

Contact Geotech (UK) to find out about their portable analyser, the BIOGAS 5000 and other portable and fixed gas analysers for anaerobic digestion and landfill operations.
