MOD 560 – Biogas Analyser

Fossil fuel is still a major source of energy. However, especially ecological awareness is a driving force to utilize biomass, as a source to produce methane gas for energy production and power generation.

The composition and quality of van de biogas are directly associated with the composition of the biomass, which is associBiogasated with the production method, digesters, or landfills. The target of each biogas plant is to produce the highest achievable yield of production capacity of the valuable methane gas.

Biogas is obtained by the biological conversion of organic materials into methane gas and carbon dioxide, in an oxygen-free anaerobic environment. Aside from these gasses, biogas also contains water and hydrogen sulfide, and other contaminants such as ammonia, hydrogen, nitrogen, and remainders of organic acid fats and alcohols.

Successful operation of a biogas plant requires stringent monitoring of the biogas composition, which forms the fundamental for process optimization to provide the highest feasible production yield.

The MOD 560 is an “all-in-one solution” for biogas analysis. It combines different analyzer technologies in one device, to accurately measure the methane, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and hydrogen sulfide content at different locations in the plant. According to the analytical results, production parameters can on-line be adjusted to the highest achievable anaerobic environment and a minimum formation of H2S for corrosion prevention.

FAQs about MOD 560 – Biogas Analyser

What is a biogas analyzer and how does the MOD 560 enhance biogas production?

A biogas analyzer is a specialized device used to measure the composition of biogas, primarily methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2), and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The MOD 560 from Modcon Systems offers an all-in-one solution, integrating various analyzer technologies to provide accurate readings. This enables on-the-fly adjustments to production parameters, optimizing the anaerobic conditions necessary for maximizing methane production and minimizing corrosive H2S formation.

What is important to take into consideration when choosing a biogas analyzer?

Selecting a biogas analyzer like the MOD 560 should be based on several key factors: accuracy of gas measurement, range of gases analyzed, and the analyzer’s ability to operate under the specific environmental conditions of a biogas plant. Additionally, the device should offer ease of installation, user-friendliness, and low maintenance requirements. The MOD 560 meets these criteria with its compact design and comprehensive gas analysis capabilities, ensuring optimized process conditions for biogas production.

Where to install biogas analyzers in a biogas plant?

Biogas analyzers should be installed at strategic points where they can effectively monitor the gas composition throughout the biogas production process. For the MOD 560, ideal installation points include the input of the digester to measure incoming organic material quality and at various points along the digester where biogas is extracted. This helps in continuously monitoring and adjusting the anaerobic digestion process to maintain optimal conditions for methane production.

How often should a biogas analyzer be serviced and calibrated?

Regular servicing and calibration are crucial for maintaining the accuracy and reliability of a biogas analyzer. The MOD 560 should be serviced and calibrated at least annually, although more frequent checks may be required depending on the operational demands and exposure to corrosive gases like hydrogen sulfide. Regular maintenance ensures sustained performance and accuracy in biogas composition analysis.

How does the MOD 560 contribute to eco-friendly energy production?

By efficiently monitoring and optimizing the production of methane from organic materials, the MOD 560 contributes to sustainable energy practices. Methane, produced in biogas plants, serves as a renewable alternative to fossil fuels, reducing reliance on non-renewable resources and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. The MOD 560’s precise analysis and control capabilities ensure a high yield and quality of methane, enhancing both ecological and economic benefits.

What are the user advantages of the MOD 560 biogas analyzer?

Users of the MOD 560 benefit from its comprehensive analysis capabilities, which include measurements of CH4, CO2, O2, and H2S. The analyzer’s small footprint and ease of operation allow for seamless integration into existing biogas production setups. Its user-friendly display and ability to monitor anaerobic conditions ensure optimized process control, leading to improved efficiency and yield in biogas production.

Can the MOD 560 handle continuous monitoring in harsh environmental conditions?

Yes, the MOD 560 is designed to withstand the harsh conditions typically found in biogas production environments. It operates effectively in high humidity and temperatures characteristic of biogas plants and is resistant to the corrosive effects of gases like hydrogen sulfide. This durability ensures continuous, reliable operation and long-term serviceability, crucial for maintaining optimal biogas production processes.
