Industrial/Communal wastewater treatment plant
Detection limit: < 200 µg/L
Sensitivity: < 67 µg/L
Methane is produced, for example, in wastewater treatment plants during the anaerobic decomposition of organic material. Since this substance is a greenhouse gas, it is necessary to keep the methane content as low as possible. By measuring methane, statements can also be made about the oxygen supply in the wastewater treatment plant.
Based on the real-time measurement, an increase in methane concentration is observed in the liquid phase between 0 and 24 mg/L upon fumigation. Thereby, the sensitivity is at least 200 µg/L and the detection limit is at least 67 µg/L.
