Gas quality

With the gas quality measurement based on gasQS™ technology, relevant process parameters are measured continuously. For all applications in which knowledge about the quality of the gas is important, Mems AG develops and optimizes economical measuring systems that exploit the full potential of the gas.

Technology

Mems uses microthermal calorimetric sensors for its gas quality analyzers. These sensors allow us to measure heat conductivity, heat capacity and also density - via an additional flow measurement through a critical nozzle. These physical sum parameters are used to draw conclusions about gas quality factors such as the air/gas ratio, methane number, Wobbe index or heat value. No knowledge is required about the composition of the gas and, in comparison to conventional process chromatographs, sensors measure quickly, are compact and robust.
