FTIR gas analyser in use at UK carbon capture research centre

Jun 25 2014

Quantitech has commissioned an advanced Gasmet FTIR multiparameter gas analyser at the UK Carbon Capture & Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) facility.

The analyser is in use at the Pilot-scale Advanced Capture Technology (PACT) facility near Sheffield, which supports both industrial and academic research.

The Gasmet DX4000 FTIR analyser was supplied and configured by Milton Keynes based Quantitech and delivered with a sampling system and heated sample lines so that hot, wet and corrosive gases can be measured.

"The FTIR gas analysis performs a vital role in our work with all carbon capture methods; enabling us to monitor CO2 levels in addition to almost any other gas from the Gasmet library of over 5,000 compounds,” said PACT Business Development Manager Dr Kris Milkowski, from the University of Leeds.

In most applications we would recommend a fixed continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) for such applications, said Quantitech Sales Director Dominic Duggan, however, as a research site, the PACT facility requires maximum flexibility in its resources, so the portability of this system is ideal for PACT’s work.
