What is your product?
The Click! System, a modular gas analyser by Gas Data.
How does it work?
It is a fixed gas monitoring system that can be used on anaerobic digestion (AD) sites and gasification projects for high-precision and 24/7 automated monitoring.
Data is gathered about specific aspects of the process and, from this, other on-site operations can be controlled, such as combined heat and power engines to maximise their operational run time.
Where would it ideally be used?
The Click! System is used on biogas, landfill and gasification sites.
How is it different?
All parts within the analyser are individual modules. This makes the analyser easy to construct or adapt (with lower associated costs) but also easy for the user to maintain. Its edge over other conventional fixed site gas analysers is that several sample points at distance can be monitored with just one analyser, 24 hours a day.
What benefits does it offer?
The Click! System can analyse a number of gases on demand. It also houses an internal programmable logic control unit that can do very complex gas sampling sequences and also help to control other on-site equipment.
Where has it been used?
The system is used on many commercial AD sites as well as established waste water treatment AD sites. It is also used on some of the UK’s leading gasification plants where synthetic gas is made from organic waste material.
Price depends on the complexity of requirements.
The system can help a site to save money in various ways, depending on its program-ming. The analyser can have user-specified outputs which can help with the automation of the timed running of a CHP engine; controlled chemical dosing to reduce odours; or to help with the controlled burning of gas in a flare. If this was done manually, there could be a huge cost in labour training and time.
What about maintenance?
Maintenance is relatively easy because of its modular build. Each module can be changed quickly with minimal downtime.
How is it future-proofed?
Gas Data is continually making improvements to its products. It now makes a gas analyser that monitors biomethane, and is on the first commercial biomethane plant with a predominantly food waste feedstock.
