Gas Endeavour®

Accurate, precise low gas volume and flow analysis for any gas type

Gas Endeavour®

Gas Endeavour® is designed to accurately and precisely measure low gas volume and flow for any type of gas production or consumption from biological respiration or fermentation processes. Fully integrated and automatic, Gas Endeavour® saves time and labour in performing analysis, leading to more efficient research and more profitable production. It is the perfect analytical instrument for research and industrial applications, including animal nutrition, wastewater, ethanol fermentation, hydrogen production, biodegradability analysis, greenhouse gas emissions, evaluating microbial communities and more.

Gas Endeavour® offers you:

  • Modular design for easy upgrade and maintenance
  • Simultaneously measures gas volume, flow and possible main composition in real-time
  • Fully integrated and automated system for sampling, recording, and generating reports
  • Flexible system configuration with two different measuring resolutions
  • User-friendly operation with remote access

Automated processes to reduce costs

Gas Endeavour® is developed for online measurements of low gas flows from any gas-displacing process at laboratory scale. Simple to use and easy to learn, this automated analytical procedure significantly reduces labour and skill demands compared to competitive solutions.

Compare results from around the world

Gas Endeavour® standardises measurement procedures, data interpretation and reporting by using standard protocols and connections. Different laboratories around the world can easily compare results, and view them on any device, computer, tablet, or smartphone, anywhere.

Extract high quality data in real-time

Satisfying the highest demands for data accuracy and precision, Gas Endeavour® produces high-quality data in real-time for extracting important kinetic information. This gives you a much better understanding of your processes.

Modular system that expands to your demands

Gas Endeavour® works as a stand-alone unit and can easily be expanded by connecting multiple instruments with a network switch. This modular approach enables flexible system set-up, easy upgrading options and simple maintenance.

Compensates for temperature and pressure

Real-time temperature and pressure compensation minimise the impact of measurement conditions and standardise data presentation.

Automatically removes over- and underestimation

If a flush gas with a different gas composition from the gas-displacing process is used to establish initial headspace gas conditions, the impact of the flush gas may lead to over- or under measurement of target gas. This is taken care of by the Gas Endeavour® software application which calculates and removes this over- or underestimation, providing for more accurate and reliable data.

Stable, reliable operation

Gas Endeavour® software runs on an embedded ARM CPU to give unmatched stability, data protection and minimum downtime. The web-based software application makes setting up and monitoring experiments very easy.

Total control throughout the experiment

Get optimal control of all reactors and batch experiments at all times with a simple click of a button from the software user interface. All values displayed are already adjusted for gas volumes normalised to 1 atmospheric pressure, 0 oC, and zero moisture content.

Customers reviews

What people say

...it saves time by enabling quick and automatic batch experiments with very little manual labour, and that it is “student proof”, because the instrument does not require long experience or training before you start using it.
Mr. Aurelien Perrault
Project Manager, Sludge & Energy Innovation, Thames Water, UK
...the automation of the test minimises human errors, makes data collection more frequent than manual methods, and reduces operator time allowing more time for performing alternate tasks.
Associate Prof. Bernadette McCabe
University of Southern Queensland, Australia
