Gas research services

For our gas research we have the following equipment available:

Anemometer

  • Temperature and air velocity

Automated gas set-up

A multifunctional and modular set-up with the following capabilities, all of which are controlled by an in-house LabVIEW developed program:

  • Adding gaseous pollutants: ethylene, acetaldehyde, methane, NOx, CO2, ...
  • Adding liquid pollutants: certain higher hydrocarbons (e.g. octane)
  • Variable O2 content
  • Variable H2O content
  • Changeable flow rate (0.2 – 5 L/min)
  • Applying diesel exhaust gases (Fisher Panda 4 cylinder, 40 kVA; Javac 1 cylinder, 5.5 kVA)
  • Possibility to alter reactor configuration

Climate chamber

  • Controlled environment (1.2m³) for air purification tests

DustTrak

  • 0.1-10µm particle detection

FTIR Spectrometer

  • Online VOC detection (ppm level)

GC-FID/TCD

  • VOC (ppb-ppm level concentrations) detection
  • CO2 detection

GC-PDD

  • Low level H2 measurement

PID

  • Total VOC measurement (ppm level)

Pressure sensor + calibrator

  • Absolute and differential pressure (-7 to 7 kPa)

P-Track

  • 0.02-1 µm particles (ultrafine PM)

Quantum Cascade Laser

  • NO
  • NO2
  • N2O
  • CO2
  • CO
  • NH3

Reactors

  • Concentric reactors
  • Slit-shaped reactor
  • Corona discharge plasma reactors (wire-to-cylinder; multi wire-to-plate)
  • Flat bed reactors
  • Multi-tube reactors

Wind sensor

  • Wind speed and direction
