For a biogas system to be functional the complete system must be specified and designed correctly.
Passive parts of the biogas system such as pipework design and layout are often overlooked. This can have significant impact on how well the system works. The biogas system design and sizing of other major components such as the control system, biogas flare and blower are critical to a successful project.
The control system can be either via local PLC or via the Plant Control System with ABM Combustion providing a Functional Description. ABM’s PLC logic is part of the solution to eliminating venting, minimising flaring and maximising biogas use in a boiler or engine.
The following illustrates some key parts that form an ABM biogas system.
