Keco CO2 Analyzer Measures Carbon Dioxide in Natural Gas Pipelines, Biogas Plants and Landfills

As companies take measures to become more environmentally friendly, they must be aware of their carbon footprint that impacts global warming. KECO offers the CarbonHound CO2 Gas Analyzer as an accurate, cost-effective, and low maintenance method to detect and measure carbon dioxide (CO2) in natural gas pipelines, biogas plants, and landfills.  The online process analyzer is ideal for use in chemical and biogas plants, gas processing facilities and landfill industries that need an accurate, dependable, and cost-effective CO2 microprocess-based analyzer as part of quality and process controls.

KECO’s CarbonHound CO2 Gas Analyzer continuously quantifies the amount of carbon dioxide in sample streams in real time using a non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) method of measurement.  Once introduced with a sample, the infrared detection element provides an output proportional to the concentration of carbon dioxide. The signal is digitized as a 4-20 mA output, relay alarms, RS-485, or TCP/IP Ethernet to work in different process control systems.

The CarbonHound features a large color touch screen HMI with LCD display that provides the current reading, previous reading, alarm conditions, historical and real-time charts, procedure prompts, and failure indicators. Built for use in Division 2 and Zone 2 hazardous locations, the CO2 gas analyzer is available in an outdoor weathering packaging. Wetted parts are nonreactive when contacting the process stream.

Featuring a solid-state design, the CarbonHound On-line Process Analyzer is low maintenance, requiring calibration only once a month or less. In addition to an optional H2S scrubber and fugitive emission control unit for vent, the process analyzer is configurable with a sample system for LPG, LNG or gases entrained with light liquids.

With accuracy and repeatability of +3% of full scale and resolution of 0.01% for readings up to 10% volume, the CarbonHound is the most effective way to measure carbon dioxide in natural gas pipelines, biogas plants and landfills.
