Vaisala launches biogas industry solution

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Vaisala has launched the world’s first in situ 3-in-1 biogas measurement instrument, Vaisala MGP261, for measuring methane, carbon dioxide and humidity in demanding environments.

The instrument is Ex certified up to zone 0, which enables in-line installation in explosive atmospheres.

The launch marks a new market entry for Vaisala and expands the company’s expertise into the field of biogas measurements. The unique multigas measurement instrument gives continuous readings of methane, carbon dioxide, and water vapor directly in the biogas process pipeline.

It is optimised for biogas production processes, such as anaerobic digestion of waste from agriculture, industries and municipalities, and the utilisation of landfill gas.

The newly launched MGP261 is based on Vaisala’s patented CARBOCAP® technology.

The instrument offers real-time gas composition without sample extraction or treatment. It helps biogas plant operators gain control over their process and optimise their combined heat and power (CHP) engine performance. The instrument also enables operators to control humidity in order to reduce wear in the CHP engines and process components.

The product is set to be available in 2Q19.
