Dairy, Hog, & Pig Farms

Ohio Lumex has become increasingly well known for our expertise in biogas/RNG analysis, and our one-stop-shop approach is resonating with clients, including producers, pipeline operators, utilities, etc., who have sometimes referred to gas analysis in this industry as the “wild west.”

Rather than having one group conduct onsite sampling, then sending it to one or more labs that typically have no experience in the complexities of biogas/RNG sampling, then purchasing monitoring equipment from another party who has adapted equipment from other industries, we provide the complete turnkey solution, designed and optimized for the biogas/RNG industry, and tailored to the clients’ needs.

We Do It All

  • Onsite sample collection
  • Sampling equipment, supplies, and guides
  • Laboratory analysis
  • Continuous monitoring equipment
  • Methods development
  • Consulting

Experience Matters

Every dairy, hog, and pig farm project is unique, and as a leader in biogas/RNG analysis, our experience in continuous monitoring, onsite sampling, and laboratory analysis is unmatched, leading to accurate and reliable data that all parties trust.

Biogas and RNG produced by these farms typically have less issues with siloxanes, but introduce concerns with other trace constituents like ammonia and pesticides that must be removed to meet gas quality requirements.

Bacteria can be another concern, as certain species of bacteria can lead to pipeline corrosion. While typically natural gas pipeline operators are looking for Acid Producing Bacteria (APB), Sulfur Reducing Bacteria (SRB), and Iron Oxidizing Bacteria (IOB), we see more issues with APB at these locations. At times, this has led to farms needing to install filters to capture the particles and address these issues.

In addition to designing and manufacturing equipment, we have been there, done it, and written or helped write the official methods. We’re the ones the industry comes to for advice, and as part of our commitment to quality our field personnel go through a rigorous training program. You can trust Ohio Lumex to get the job done right, professionally and cost-effectively, and be there to support our clients.

As part of our commitment to supporting our customers, we’re including a link on the right to the automated Sample Volume Calculators for our gaseous fuels sampling systems. Please let us know if you have any questions.
