Q.E.D. Environmental Systems’ BIOMETHANE 3000 fixed analyzer promises to generate high-accuracy methane and oxygen readings for biomethane applications. The biomethane analyzer is suitable for biogas upgrading, anaerobic digestion of agricultural, farm and mixed food waste, sewage and wastewater treatment anaerobic digestion, vehicle fuel anaerobic digestion. and other biomethane production applications.
The analyzer provides continual measurement of methane, carbon dioxide, and oxygen with a user-definable fourth gas reading of hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen, or carbon monoxide. It provides readings above the 95% methane level and below the 1% oxygen level at first stage production.
Customizable to site requirements, the BIOMETHANE 3000 protects operators from oxygen issues while preventing the risk of injecting poor-quality gas into the grid network. With its modular design, the unit enables hot swapping for serviceability and onsite maintenance, minimizing operational downtime.
Other features include an IP65-rated enclosure, certification for use in potentially-explosive atmospheres (ATEX) and IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEx) Zone 2 areas, and a variety of communication options including Modbus RTU and optional Process Field Bus (PROFIBUS), Process Field Net (PROFINET), and Ethernet communication protocols.
