Hydrogen gas analysis and gas detection is performed daily in many applications. However, traditional sensors used to measure hydrogen suffer from several ‘pain points’. But a breakthrough might be on the way.
Insplorion, a gas analysis technology innovator based in Sweden, has developed a new technique that will transform the way hydrogen is measured. Their system can enable improved safety and more reliable process control.
The default sensor for measuring hydrogen gas for process control applications is a thermal conductivity detector (TCD). The instrumentation works very well in binary systems when the background gas is known. In this situation, the electronics and software can be configured to measure the hydrogen concentration accurately. However, in applications where the background matrix gas changes or additional gases are introduced, the TCD is less suitable.
