SOPHISTICATED UNDERWATER GAS DETECTION MADE IN GERMANY

Methane is one of the most important gases in our environment. Detecting sites of active Methane seepage from the sediment and quantifying gas fluxes in the water column requires accurate online measurements in-situ. CONTROS’ HydroC™ is a unique underwater methane sensor solving the global problems of the in-situ and online measurements of CH4. Applications include Global Warming, Methane Hydrate Studies and Environmental Monitoring.

Function principle Hydrocarbon/Methane diffuses quickly from the liquid through a patented thinfilm composite membrane into a detector chamber. The CH4 concentration is measured with utmost accuracy by non-dispersive infrared spectrometry (NDIR) within a gas circuit. Advantages

✓ The HydroC™ system has a low detection

limit.

✓ The HydroC™ system is unaffected by

turbidity or interferences to other gaseous substances in the environment.

✓ The HydroC™ system features an optical

technology with a proven track record.

✓ The HydroC™ system has a long-term

stable signal.

Technical outline Detection limit: Operational depths: Maintenance interval: Data outputs:

< 10 nmol / l up to 6000 m 12 Months digital & analogue
