The MS1800 is a VOC / Hydrocarbon Concentration Monitor designed for measuring gases in drains and outflows from industrial facilities. The instrument senses gases or volatiles providing a measurement system with very low maintenance requirements. Taking a measurement every 2 seconds, the MS1800 is accurate from less than 1 ppm to 1,000 ppm concentrations, dependent upon the target gas, and its wide dynamic range allows it to be used in a wide variety of environments.
A user programmable Alert threshold can be set, connecting to relay outputs and indicators on the front panel. This allows connection to other peripheral equipment such as isolation valves, pumps, samplers or audio-visual alarms. A 4 – 20 mA output is available for connection to a PLC or SCADA system. Applications include:
- Monitoring of drains and effluent discharges
- Detection of explosive gases
- Oil and Fuel Leak Detection
- Odour Control
- Land Remediation
- Low operating and maintenance costs
- High reliability
- No reagents
- Field proven technology
Industrial effluent monitoring
The MS1800 VOC gas monitor is used to monitor the industrial effluent from factories and business premises to ensure that they are complying with environmental regulations.
Discharge of VOCs into wastewater is an endemic problem in chemical processing and other industrial processes.
For this reason, many industrial facilities have purification plants to remove the bulk of these contaminants from the water before it’s discharged.
However spills can overrun the treatment capacity and lead to illegal discharges, pollution, fines and PR disasters.
When this happens, it is likely that the environmental agency will ask for expensive on-line TOC analysers to be installed, which require a lot of reagents and are an additional cost.
By installing an MS1800 VOC analyser at the effluent, you can be notified as soon as the values start to increase and take appropriate actions, avoiding all the problems associated with unexpected pollution events.
Sewage System Monitoring
Hydrocarbons in sewage lines pose a threat to maintenance personnel and could potentially contaminate the sludge in a sewage treatment plant.
Sludge might become contaminated with hydrocarbons as the result of defective oil separators, unintentional spills or even dumping.
Once sludge contains hydrocarbons it has to be treated as chemical waste rather than fertiliser. This can significantly increase the price of disposal.
By using the MS1800 VOC Gas monitor, we can detect peak in the concentrations of VOCs in the sewage system and take appropriate actions, thus optimizing the treatment process
