Energy / Biofuels
The possibility of producing energy without a net increase of carbon into the atmosphere has renewed international interest in the Biofuels Industry.
Extrel offers two Process Mass Spectrometers that are used to provide a variety of analyses that help scientists and engineers to accurately and efficiently develop the Biofuel conversion processes. The MAX300-IG Industrial Gas Analyzer and the MAX300-LG Laboratory Gas Analyzer provide flexibility, produces fast and accurate analysis and can withstand harsh process environments.
R&D institutions and pilot-plant facilities investigating Biofuel applications involving Ethanol, Fuel Cells, Hydrogen Production, Natural Gas/BTU, and Syngas/Gasification can benefit from Extrel MAX300 Quadrupole Process Mass Spectrometers.
Advantages of using the MAX300-IG and/or the MAX300-LG include:
- Analyzer flexibility allows users to add components and change the analysis methods via software, without expensive hardware reconfiguration
- Speed of analysis allows real-time calculations of process parameters such as BTUs, heating values, respiratory quotients, carbon balances and mass balances
- The MAX300-LG analyzer provides a 10 part per billion (ppb) detection limit, much better than the other low cost residual gas mass analyzers
Extrel supports a variety of industry standards and communications including Ethernet, Bi-directional Modbus RTU or TCP/IP, OPC, Analog and Digital outputs and custom communications.
