Siloxane Gas Monitor For Gas Feeds To CHP Engines

A combined heat and power (CHP) engines main job is to convert AD derived gas into electricity; that powers a grid for consumers. When this engine fails, it can be expensive to fix and means many homes without electricity in worse cases.

AD derived gas has some level of Siloxane contamination; this contaminated gas then gets filtered by a carbon filter. Over time the carbon filter will become saturated and then lets Siloxane gases into the CHP engine. Siloxane build ups will cause a CHP engine to run erratically and eventually shut down or fail.

STS have developed a Siloxane gas monitor that can accurately measure the Siloxane Contamination in mg/m3 passing through to the CHP engine. The data will show filter saturation and damaging gases being passed through the CHP engine. You can then act on this information and carry out filter regeneration to get the system back on track and performing at optimum efficiency.

An online Siloxane monitor for gas feeds to CHP engines, monitoring 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, providing a total Siloxanes reading to enable operators to optimise Filter replacement and Regeneration processes for maximum economic benefit while preventing expensive engine damage.
