In todays ever-increasing search for inexpensive alternative fuel sources, Gasification is a technology that is steadily gaining popularity. Gasification takes a variety of different raw materials and by-products, such as coal, biomass, petroleum, or biofuel, and through a partial-oxidation process, converts these materials into usable Syngas. Syngas can be used in a diverse range of applications such as creating electricity, chemical manufacturing, or even powering turbines. Monitoring the different stages of these processes becomes significant to ensure proper combustion, maintain efficiency and identify unknowns and potentially unwanted by-products. Real-time analysis of all types of Gasification can be obtained using a Extrel process mass spectrometer.
Extrels Quadrupole Process Mass Spectrometers have been the preferred analysis system for Syngas producers of ammonia, methanol, ethanol and hydrogen for over 25 years. The MAX300-RTG Industrial Process Gas Analyzer is Extrels seventh generation of process mass spectrometers. This gas analyzer can quickly cycle between all of the Gasification streams such as the gasifier composition, the sulfur removal, the CO shift, the CO2 removal, as well as the numerous final product processes.
For laboratory or bench scale reactor studies of Syngas reactions, Extrel offers the process mass spectrometer system in a laboratory package, known as the MAX300-LG.
