Sewage Treatment Plant Gas Monitoring Systems
Custom Designed Solutions and Project Management
Our fully bespoke designable systems can be retrofitted and also newly integrated into the sewage and biogas processes. Our equipment is extremely robust and can be installed in harsh environments to ensure that all locations can be monitored. For digester systems in particular CO2 is monitored as the main by product. Sewage treatment rooms are generally monitored for Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide, our systems can be connected to the existing extraction fan system and enable when alarm limit concentrations are present.
All our systems can be connected to the plants SCADA and DCS to allow continuous monitoring and allow historical logging. We as standard have multiple analog and digital outputs that can activate both visual and audible alarms i.e. beacons/sounders.

Typical question answered by our expert
There are many parts of the water, waste water treatment process that may have flammable, toxic and inert gases present that need to be monitored to ensure worker exposure is limited and that the source can be eliminated or controlled. The usual water, waterwater treatment plant target gases are Methane CH4, Hydrogen Sulphide H2S, Chlorine Cl2, Sulphur Dioxide SO2 and Oxygen. There are a few other target gases that may be monitored to cover all aspects of the typical Water, waste-water treatment plant which could include Chlorine Dioxide Cl02, Ammonia NH3 and Ozone O3.
There are 3 common target gases that are found in a wastewater treatment plant, these are Methane CH4, Hydrogen Sulphide H2S and Oxygen O2. These cover the flammable, toxic and inert gas aspects of the environment which need to be monitored and controlled, as they are by products of the treatment plant process.
An example would be Hydrogen Sulphide which is damaging to your health even at 10 -500ppm levels, higher than this can be fatal. One of the side effects of H2S inhalation is losing your sense of smell. This could then cause you not to realise that H2S is in the current environment. H2S has a very distinctive pungent smell which is the first indicator of high levels.
Usually, toxics gases are monitored using an electrochemical cell. The measurement range could be anything from very low ppm levels to >5000ppm
To monitor target gases, you can either use personal / portable sensors and fixed sensors. The personal / portable sensors are usually clipped to an individuals clothing and will monitor the current environment and provide indications of a safe or alarm level target gas concentrations. Fixed sensors are usually mounted in a required location and will continually monitor the surrounding atmosphere and provide indications of rising target gas concentrations via either local audible visual alarms or signals to remote annunciators or control equipment.
