Synspec Alpha series
Methane and total non-methane hydrocarbons (TNMHC) analysers
The Synspec Alpha analyser is a real gas chromatograph that features a compact oven with a column that separates methane from total non-methane hydrocarbons using an FID detector.
The methane (CH4) gas sample passes through a special layered, packed column and is injected into the detector. A second after this, the column is back-flushed and all other hydrocarbons pass to the detector, resulting in two peaks generated by the FID – one for methane and one for TNMHC. The measurements are captured using true gas chromatographic separation which prevents potential catalytical conversion problems which may arise in other indirect measurements.
Acoem offers two different models of Synspec Alpha methane/TNMHC analysers:
- Synspec Alpha 115 for ambient air measurements in cities or near industries
- Synspec Alpha 116 for stack measurement up to 1000 ppm with a higher range.
Acoem Australasia (Ecotech Pty Ltd) is an official representative and distributor of Synspec analysers in Australasia including the Alpha 115/116 series, the GC955 series and the Delta 100/300 series of analysers.
