Designed to simplifiy the selection and pricing of substrates by determining the true energy content of any biomass substrate.


Features of the Biogas Endeavour

  • Outstanding real-time performance
  • Real-time temperature and pressure compensation to ensure that the impact of measurement conditions can be minimised and data presentation standardised.
  • How? The temperature and pressure of gas are measured every time a flow cell opens, allowing the user to derive exact kinetic information compensated for any variation over time, while considering the vapour content of the gas. The normalised volumes are presented under dry conditions at 0 degrees Celsius and 1 atm.
  • Network ready - easy access from any remote location with any web browser
  • Monitor experiments from your iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows mobile device.
