Tips for maintenance of ethylene analyzer of exhaust gas purifier

Due for a crop rotation? A good time for the maintenance of the ethylene analyzer of your exhaust gas purifier, according to Hagelunie.

Maintenance reduces the chance of breakdown
A well maintained exhaust gas purifier reduces the risk of crop damage and keeps your production on course. Therefore, here are some tips for proper maintenance:

• Get a maintenance contract.
Maintenance of an exhaust gas purifier is a specialist job. Find a maintenance company that can work with the manufacturer of your exhaust gas purifier. Make clear agreements about the execution of this maintenance.

• Check the maintenance
Ask for a report following the maintenance, showing the work done and the measurement results.
• Check your measuring equipment annually
This is necessary to be sure of the accuracy of the measurements. The ethylene analyzer must be sent back to the manufacturer for a few weeks for inspection and maintenance. Therefore we advise you get this done during a crop rotation. If this is not possible? Ensure that you have a replacement ethylene analyzer.
Please note that for older monitoring equipment, maintenance is no longer possible because the parts are no longer available. In this case, contact your supplier.

• Check the CO2 valve
Does this connect properly? If exhaust gases have an incorrect composition, connect your checking equipment to CO2 valve. Only a well-sealed CO2 valve allows no exhaust gases to pass through. For this reason, measure the exhaust gas after the CO2 valve.
