meterQ recei­ved an order for an MGCflex for the deter­mi­na­ti­on of hydro­gen in the ran­ge of 90 to 100% and impu­ri­ties such as nitro­gen, car­bon dioxi­de, car­bon mon­oxi­de, metha­ne, etha­ne, pro­pa­ne and buta­ne in the ran­ge up to 1000 ppm.

In the cour­se of the Ger­man ener­gy tran­si­ti­on and the search for car­bon-free ener­gy sources, hydro­gen is curr­ent­ly con­side­red a pro­mi­sing fuel. The rese­arch pro­ject “COSI­Ma” (CO2-neu­tral Saint-Gobain site Her­zo­gen­rath — fea­si­bi­li­ty stu­dies) deals with the inves­ti­ga­ti­on of the con­ver­si­on of a glass pro­duc­tion site to hydro­gen. In this con­text, various bur­ner tests and mea­su­re­ment cam­paigns are to be car­ri­ed out at the Gas- und Wär­me-Insti­tut Essen e.V. on the institute’s own test faci­li­ties. For this pur­po­se, various natu­ral gas/hydrogen mix­tures are pro­du­ced and used to fire the bur­ners.

Pre­cise know­ledge of the fuel gas com­po­si­ti­on or the hydro­gen con­tent is a neces­sa­ry pre­re­qui­si­te for suc­cessful expe­ri­men­ta­ti­on. The “COSI­Ma” pro­ject is sup­port­ed by funds from the sta­te of NRW.
