❱ ❱ Syngas is used as a fuel source for industrial power generation plants with reduced emissions

Let it flow T


Syngas is a biofuel based on hydrogen and carbon compounds. The name derives from “synthesis gas” as it’s used as an intermediary in the production of synthetic natural gas and other chemical products. Syngas is produced from the gasification process for

converting household waste or coal burning emissions into usable material. It can be used as a fuel source for electricity generation for industrial purposes.

THERMAL MASS FLOW METERS Thermal mass flow meters apply heat to the fluid that is flowing. Thermal sensors measure the temperature of the passing fluid at two or more points and calculate the flow rate based on the temperature difference. The Bell Flow Systems TGF600 thermal mass flow meter uses Comate’s latest sensor film technology to achieve a stable flow rate measurement down to as low as 0.3Nm/s in pipe sizes between DN25 and DN6000. Models that are available in the range are designed to provide

temperature-compensated direct mass flow measurement of both air and gases. The flexibility of the system enables measurements in both small and large diameter pipes, stacks and ducts in power generation, industrial air and gas supplies as well as compressed air monitoring. The technology of thermal mass flow metering therefore has a wide

variety of industrial applications. These meters feature the TPA600 circuit board, which introduces faster and more powerful processing than its predecessors were capable of. In addition, the TGF600 benefits from a clear to read two-line LCD readout, which displays comprehensive process information with both analogue and digital signal outputs of flow rate and sensor status diagnostics. n

GF600 flow meters from UK based Bell Flow Systems are being fitted to environmentally improved “Syngas” engines that are being manufactured in the UK. Such engines generate substantially less noise and produce lower emission levels than equivalent diesel engines. Syngas engines have been shown to produce clean, on-demand electricity.

Combining state-of-the-art electronics technology with application-proven precision flow sensors designed for extremely demanding plant operating environments, the new TGF600 Series range of air/gas flow meters for Syngas accurately measures the consumption of synthesis gas by the generators.
