Siloxane Measuring Centre at UK AD & Biogas 2018

Let us show you how to monitor Siloxanes at the UK AD Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2018 with our Siloxane Measuring Centre

Location: Birmingham NEC

Dates: 11-12 July 2018

Join us at the UK AD Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2018. This year STS Instruments and IMSPEX Diagnostics have combined forces to showcase the Siloxane Measuring Centre which will deliver a complete service for monitoring siloxanes in biogas for CHP and Gas-to-Grid installations.

Siloxanes are used in the following industries:

  • Food
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Cosmetics
  • Dry-cleaning industries

They burn to silica in CHP engines and heating appliances. Silica forms damaging coatings on flame sensors in heating equipment and coats plugs, valves and cylinder heads in CHP engines, as well as abrading all contact surfaces. Hence resulting in the loss of generating revenue and damage to CHP plant can run into tens of thousands of pounds.

Cleaning of the raw gas is therefore imperative and for both CHP and Gas to Grid applications this involves the use of activated carbon filters.  Monitoring these filters enables optimisation of change over whilst monitoring the cleaned gas proves compliance with siloxane concentration limits of the grid.

Our Instrument sensitivity ranges from 0.03mg/m3 up to 200 mg/m3 and so covers sewage, landfill and food waste operations. Monitors can be supplied in packaged, weatherproof kiosks.  Data comms, monitoring service, installation and routine maintenance are all provided in house.
