Picarro G1302 gas analyser for simultaneous measurements


The new Picarro G1302 trace gas analyser is the first turnkey instrument capable of simultaneously measuring CO and CO2 with high precision, in real-time, and with minimal calibration required.

Suitable for remotely operated (unattended) GHG monitoring applications, including tall-tower measurements as well as for research and reference laboratory use, the G1302 provides lower overall costs than previous technologies.

Specifically, the unit also delivers measurement precision down to 2 ppbv for CO, 50 ppbv for CO2 and based on Picarro’s proven wavelength-scanned cavity ring down spectroscopy (WS-CRDS) technology, the analyser also provides quantitative data on H2O concentration levels.

In field CO2 monitoring applications, CO is commonly used as an anthropogenic CO2 emission indicator as well as a method to co-identify CO and CO2 plumes of incendiary origin, as opposed to natural origin from soils. Traditional technologies require frequent calibration and maintenance, as well as the use of a different analyser for each gas species.
