The Trace-Gas FID technology platform is designed for high precision analysis of organic hydrocarbon compounds (VOC/THC/Methane).

The platform based on flame ionization detection is used for the measurement of total hydrocarbon (THC) and methane (CH4) concentrations.

The measurement principle is based on the ionization of organically bound carbon atoms in a hydrogen flame. This allows the mass determination of THC or CH4 concentrations in a process or sample gas. According to the company the high dynamic range as well as the linearity over a wide concentration range show a clear advantage over other sensor principles and qualify the FID technology for various applications. During the design of the sensor, special attention was paid to a compact structure as well as modularity. With this goal in mind, a dual-channel measurement system was implemented in the smallest possible space, enabling the simultaneous measurement of THC and CH4. With the dual system, the content of non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) can also be monitored, which ideally serves the versatile application areas of the technology platform.
