Bio Gas Flow Meter

The production of biogas is a key part of any operation in most of industrial, commercial and public sector. It is necessary to measure the flow of biogas to ensure facility efficiency using bio gas flow meter. Flow measurement helps operators to know how much biogas deliveries to the gas grid.

Measuring technologies associated with biogas applications are challenging. Various technologies are available, including thermal mass, turbine, vortex, orifice, annubars and ultrasonic.

Biogas is a dirty gas containing moisture and particulate content. It can clog up flow measuring instruments such as annubars, orifice plates and gum up rotor of turbine meters and similar instruments that have moving parts. Biogas often has a low pressure which makes differential pressure flow measuring device unsuitable since they require large differential pressure to operate. PCD is one of the leading biogas flow meter manufacture in India.

Thermal mass flow technology measures the mass flow of gas, have any moving part results in negligible pressure drop. Thus, this flow technology is best suits for low-pressure flow measurement. It is one of the best suitable flow measuring devices which operate over a wide flow range having wide turn downs ratio.

Bio Gas

Biogas is a renewable gaseous fuel produced from the decomposition of organic waste. It belongs to the class of biofuels. Composition of biogas primarily consists of methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes. Methane is a valuable form of gas and can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen. Further, this allows biogas to be used as a fuel for any heating purpose, such as cooking and to generate electricity. Biogas can also be compressed such as natural gas and used to power motor vehicles.

How Biogas is produced – and from what?

It is produced by the decomposition of organic matter, such as animal waste and food scraps in an anaerobic digester. This is a biological procedure to degrade organic matter by producing biogas. Which are a renewable energy source and a sludge used as fertilizer. In anaerobic digester due to the absence of oxygen, blend of gases release such as methane and carbon dioxide along with other trace gases. This process also knows as anaerobic digestion.

Waste to energy plants:

From its name “waste to energy” its system is taking organic components and converting it to biogas. The organic material is daily basis waste, Animal waste and products from foods and vegetables.
