FTIR Analyser Used in Siloxanes Measurement From Anaerobic Digesters
Protea’s atmosFIR model FTIR gas analyser has again provided useful online siloxanes measurement in the research of biogas treatment from anaerobic digesters. The linked paper below from Global Omnium Medioambiente (València, Spain) describes the work carried out monitoring from suspended biomass bioreactors (SBBs).
The atmosFIR gas analysers was used to measure continuously the total siloxanes and speciated siloxanes (PMDS, L2, L3, L4, L5, D3, D4, D5 and D6) from both the inlet and outlet stream of the SBBs, to determine the effectiveness of siloxanes abatement. The FTIR also measures CH4, CO2 and H2S within the gas streams.
