Methane measurement using infrared technology

Methane measurement using infrared technology

Henlick With INFICON’s IRwin Methane Gas Meter, it offers a multi-functional system with enhanced infrared sensor technology. Thanks to a specially developed infrared sensing system (patent pending), IRwin provides fast response and short recovery time.

HENNLICH offers the opportunity to test the Irwin methane meter during a comprehensive product demonstration. With its high-precision infrared sensor technology and special gas filter to reduce false alarms, IRwin is the perfect choice for accurate gas concentration measurements.

Gas measurements using IRwin

To avoid incorrect measurements or false alarms, IRwin uses an infrared sensor with a special gas filter. This means that turbulence caused by water vapor, ethanol or exhaust gases can be significantly reduced. It is certified as its own device and offers TÜV® tested LEL, oxygen and toxic gas measurements.

The system prevents wasted time tracking down false alarms and ensures accurate and reliable leak analysis. A specially developed combination of gas chromatograph (GC) and infrared sensor allows rapid discrimination of bottom gas and natural gas from different sources. Even at low ethane concentrations, with methane leakage as high as 1,000 ppm, the IRwin GC also produces fast results. IRwin measures methane according to conventional operating modes, such as “above ground inspection” and “soil air test” according to DVGW G465-4 and has a measurement range from 1 ppm to 100% by volume.
