The petrochemical, gas processing, biogas, landfill and gas pipeline industries has always needed an accurate and dependable, low maintenance and cost effective CO2 analyzer for quality and process control purposes. KECO has met these requirements with the proven microprocessor based analyzer.
The CarbonHound provides continuous on-line analysis based on the specific non-dispersive infrared principle of operation. A precision flowmeter regulates the sample flow to approximately approx. 1.5 SCFH. Next, the sample is introduced to the specific infrared detection element that provides an output proportional to the concentration of carbon dioxide. This signal is digitized and analyzed by the advanced microprocessor HMI (Human Machine Interface) and related software resulting in a 4-20 mA output, relay alarms, and RS-485, TCP/IP Ethernet. The color touch screen LCD display provides the current reading, previous reading, any alarm conditions, historical and real-time charts, procedure prompts (i.e., calibration procedure), and failure indicators (local and remote capability). Quality materials are selected for compatibility and are utilized throughout fabrication. Special attention is given to wetted parts that come in contact with the process stream and are selected to be non-reactive.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CO2 process analyzer?
CO2 Process analyzers are able to quantify carbon dioxide in a sample stream continuously, in real-time. CO2 process analyzers are used in the oil and gas industry to measure for CO2 in natural gas pipelines. CO2 process analyzers are also used in the biogas industry.
How do CO2 process analyzers work?
The most effective way to measure carbon dioxide is with CO2 Process Analyzers using NDIR method of measurement. NDIR stands for Non-dispersive Infrared and is an effective method of measuring for CO2 in natural gas pipelines and biogas plants.
Are CO2 process analyzers easy to use?
Yes, CO2 process analyzers are easy to use because they use NDIR method of detection which is low-maintenance, only requiring calibration once a month or less.
