Energy comprises many types of modes by using complex processes to explore, extract, refine, produce and transport these products. The energy industry comprises: Fossil fuels: coal, petroleum and natural gas (conventional as well as hydraulic fracturing), including liquid propane gas and liquid natural gas. Non fossil fuels such as: hydroelectric, battery technology, hydrogen fuel cells, nuclear power. Renewable fuels such as: biofuels, hydrogen fuel cells, geothermal, solar (photovoltaic). Nuclear power.
In this era of economic crises, oil crises and discussions regarding nuclear power stations, there is an increasing focus on "renewable energy sources" and the "energy industry". Not only high efficiency but also precision, durability and stability are essential factors here. Pressure transmitters and level transmitters from BD|SENSORS guarantee exactly that. Whether you are involved in conventional energy production or in the field of renewable energy sources, with BD|SENSORS you have a reliable partner to help...
Fast, accurate and reliable measurement of CO2 and CH4 concentration. Methane and CO2 concentration measurements are a key part of the evaluation of the anaerobic digestion process. Too high or too low gas concentration levels can indicate a change in the efficiency of the fermentation process. AD process control systems measure the Methane content (and often the CO2 content) of the gas stream to control or evaluate the AD process and warn of problems. Edinburgh Sensors provide high performance OEM gas detectors...
AppliTek`s solutions in this field concentrate on the process efficiency of anaerobic digesters. Many existing digesters give unnecessary problems, which arise due to inadequacies in the process or process control system. AppliTek has developed a unique instrument to measure and control the key processes in the anaerobic fermentation. Compact gas analyzers with proprietary technology can be implemented to check the biogas yield.
Parameters: Volatile Fatty Acids - Alkalinity - pH - Bicarbonate
Gas parameters: CH4...
The most important measurement parameter is irradiation. Since PV systems are becoming ever larger, the accuracy of the irradiation measurement is increasingly important for the efficiency of the system. Wind cools the temperature of the module and must therefore be included in the efficiency calculation. Precipitation leads to contamination or covering (snow). With increasing temperature, the performance of the solar module decreases. Therefore, it is important to measure the temperature of the solar module in...
Thermal power generation involves the combustion of a fuel to raise steam and drive a turbine to produce electricity. AMETEK Land provides the high-performance temperature measurements, emissions monitoring and safety systems demanded by this industry. High-accuracy measurements of temperature and flue gas composition are essential in optimising the combustion process, regardless of fuel used. Our instruments also help control pollution, and provide essential safety monitoring. With more than 60 years’...
Bertin Instruments provides a range of reliable and high-performance products fully adapted to the fight against CBRN terrorism and covers any emergency situation, particularly in border control situations.
Wind Energy has brought new life to the wind measurement industry, including SoDAR. With wind turbine hub heights reaching over 100m and blade spans of up to 80m, measurements across the entire blade swept area are becoming critical. SoDAR provides that information and ASC`s SoDARs offer more.
AppliTek has already developed the necessary tools to measure and control on-line the production, in case the futur is in favour of biofuels. For biodiesel, the following quality indices should be monitored, on order to comply with international legislation on biofuel QC:
Free fatty acids - Calcium & Magnesium - Total Phosphorus - Potassium - Moisture (water content)
If you produce or consume biomass fuels, you know that quality is critical to your success, and you know that moisture and ash content control are critical to biomass fuel quality. Too much moisture and you get poor efficience and high emissions. Too much ash and you get fouling and slagging. And if either of those is uncontrolled, purchase contracts can fall through. Computrac can help.
Power Generation Combustion Air Measurements: The need for accurate, repeatable & reliable combustion air measurements in power generation plants is critical to efficient operation and safety throughout the entire facility and processes. Coal-fired power plant applications pose a number of challenges to obtaining these critical flow measurements includ¬ing large ducts, limited metering runs, poor velocity and temperature profiles, high vibration, temperatures up to 750° F and dirty `Fly Ash` laden air.
For wind resource assessment campaigns in regions with long and cold winters, special measurement systems have to be designed. The challenges of cold climate regions should never be underestimated. Particularly icing is a problem. The met mast construction and the installed sensors have to be chosen carefully. The instruments have to be properly heated by a reliable power system.
With our long-term experience in wind measurement and our local installation partners we can offer complete measurement systems robust...
As the world addresses the challenges of global warming green energy production and in particular wind energy generation has increased significantly. Biral can provide sensors for the control of aviation obstacle light intensity, wind speed measurement and site assessment.
The Deutscher Wetterdienst (German Meteorological Service – DWD) has certified the VPF-710, SWS-100 and SWS-200 sensors as suitable for use in visibility controlled wind turbine obstruction light systems.
In a recent project and the subject of this paper, Kurz engineers conducted a study that lead to a unique, new design that allows thermal flow meters to perform accurately within a wet digester gas environment. The testing environment applies to landfill and digester applications.
Resource & Energy Efficiency offers a powerful and cost-effective tool for achieving a sustainable future. Resource & Energy Efficiency saves money and cuts emissions faster than any other climate change mitigation option. Efficiently using resources and energy consequentially bring about both economic and ecological advantages. By enacting efficiency measures, organizations simultaneously save costs and reduce environmental impacts and risks.

Site surveys for tidal, wave and wind based renewable energy projects will require instruments to measure standard physical parameters before, during and post installation.Fine tuning of the generating method is also reliant on data from sensor packages to maximise the source energy required for profitable installations.
Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to the flammable...
