The most well-respected technologies used to measure Methane in industrial, non-laboratory conditions include Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) and Tunable Diode Laser (TDL).
NDIR based analyzers extract a gas sample from the process, have the capability of measuring multiple gases simultaneously, and typically employ a purging system to certify for hazardous area applications.
TDL based analyzers are very compact, low cost, and certified for hazardous area applications. They provide rapid measurements by measuring the Methane directly in the process without extracting a gas sample. Generally, TDL analyzers can measure only a single gas species.
Elemental Instruments, a division of Ohio Lumex, offers both NDIR and TDL based instruments to continuously measure Methane from a variety of sources, depending upon specific applications.
Methane is a primary component of natural gas. It is an odorless, invisible gas that can be found underground and below the ocean floor. Methane emissions come from a variety of manmade and natural sources, including landfills, oil and natural gas systems, farming activities, coal mining, combustion systems, wastewater treatment, and some industrial processes. It is increasingly important to monitor methane emissions as it is a potent greenhouse gas that can have significant effects on the atmosphere.
