Biogas analyser for waste management and recycling

Biogas is exhausted from biological degradation of organic matter without oxygen. This gas is naturally emitted in swamps, landfills, etc. It is artificially produced as well for waste management – waste water, sewage and any organic waste treatment – to produce energy.

Biogas analyser for waste management and recycling

Biogas production – through plants or digesters – and recycling are encouraged, however biogas remains a factor of global warming. This production, treatment and valorization processes thus require appropriate control and follow-up with biogas monitoring devices. In power plants, treatment and production centers, fixed and/or portable biogas analyzers for worker’s safety are required.

  • Biogas composition and effects on health

    Biogas is composed of several gases with different properties. Amongst them is methane (CH4) – primary gas that composes biogas from 50 to 70% - which is a combustible gas particularly used in power plants (gas turbine). Biogas is also composed of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) – a toxic gas – and carbon dioxide (CO2) – which is an asphyxiating gas – and water vapors (H2O) as well.
     
    As it is mainly composed of methane, biogas is thus above all a combustible and flammable gas. Because of the presence of hydrogen sulfide, it is also toxic and corrosive. Anaerobic fermentation also implies bacteria and particles that can cause disturbances to humans. Because of that, biogas presence has to be constantly measured and monitored.
     
    Short exposure to high concentrations does not lead to death. Symptoms to this exposure type are breathing tracts and eye irritation. In case of chronic exposure, organ failure can impact the digestive system (abdominal pain) and the brain (chronic tiredness).

  • Effects on health :

    As it is mainly composed by methane, the biogas is a combustible gas. It is also toxic and corrosive because of the presence of hydrogene sulphide.
    The anaerobic fermentation fermentation also produce bacterias and suspended particles that can cause disturbances to humans.

    A brief exposure to high concentrations does not lead to death. The symptoms linked to this kind of exposure are an irritation to the respiratory tracts and to the eyes conjunctivitis).
    In case of chronic exposures, some failures to organs such as the digestive system (abdominal pain) and the brain (chronic fatigue) have been observed.

  • Biogas detectors and analysers :

    Biogas analyser (fixed or portable)

    Biogas is appropriate for cogeneration, which means a combined production of heat and electricity. As their properties can vary, gas turbines will need to adapt to biogas composition. A biogas analyzer (fixed or portable) measures and controls this gas quality for optimal performance.

    Biogas detector and area gas monitor

    Because of the different gases included in the composition of biogas, the most commonly used personal protective equipment (PPE) is a 4 gas detector (CH4, O2, CO & H2S). Nevertheless, using a multi-gas detector with CH4, O2, CO, CO2 and H2S sensors is more relevant. In addition to portable gas detectors, area gas monitors will ensure monitoring on the full production zone.

Additional information

The MX6-iBrid gas detector is an high-tech portable multigas detector. Thanks to its rechargeable ion-lithium (Li-ion) battery, it can operates around 24 hours continuously. The optional extended battery can replace the standard one and extend the autonomy up to 36 hours. A lighter version with AA battery is also available for 10 hours of operation.

The MX6-iBrid portable multigas detector can detect up to 6 gases simultaneously according to the configuration (some locations are dedicated to specific sensors). A large range of gases is furthermore available: combustible gases, chlorine (Cl2), chlorine dioxide (ClO2), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen (H2), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), hydrogen chloride (HCl), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ammonia (NH3), oxygen (O2), phosphine (PH3), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and many volatile organic compounds (VOC).

The MX6-iBrid combines the highest sensor technologies for accurate measures. Oxygen and toxic gases are detected with an electrochemical sensor. Combustible and explosive gases are on the other hand detected with a catalytic sensor or through infrared absorption. This IR technology is also used to detect carbon dioxide. Lastly, volatile organic compounds are detected with a photoionization sensor (<10,6 eV).

This portable multigas detector is considered as a high-technology device as it is the first portable gas detector featuring a colored display. This allows users to easily read events curbs of every gas without misunderstanding. The MX6-iBrid is compliant with the most demanding ATEX standards and with the IP67 ingress protection level thanks to its shock-resistant polycarbonate overmolded housing.
