Ambisense has announced the launch of what it believes is the world’s first continuous gas concentration and flow monitoring device for ground gas applications.
The Gasflux device is fitted with technology to enable real-time monitoring of landfills, brownfield sites, onshore oil and gas facilities and industrial sites.
According to Ambisense, continuous monitoring allows users to quickly build up an accurate representation of ground gas behaviour on contaminated land and landfill sites, as well as fracking and other oil and gas activities.
The company has said that by monitoring both flow and concentration continuously, practitioners can for the first time build datasets that are less open to interpretation and that can be used to de-risk sites, reducing costs and development time.
The Ambisense platform provides continuous monitoring of gas and air and reporting of that data through the cloud.
The Gasflux system can monitor ammonia, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide, methane, oxygen and total volatile organic compounds, as well as atmospheric pressure, humidity and temperature.
The device can be mounted in boreholes or within manifolds or pipes.
