LGR’s new Ultra-Portable Greenhouse Gas Analyzer (UGGA) reports measurements of methane, carbon dioxide and water vapor simultaneously in a package that is compact, crushproof and travels anywhere. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved size) and requiring less than 70 watts, the UGGA offers opportunities to measure GHG anywhere. As with all LGR instruments, the UGGA is simple to use which makes it ideal for field studies, compliance monitoring, leak detection, air quality studies and soil flux studies, and wherever measurements of methane, carbon dioxide and water vapor are needed.
In addition, the UGGA reports and stores all measured absorption spectra which allows the instrument to accurately correct for water vapor dilution and absorption line broadening effects and thus to report CH4 and CO2 on a dry mole fraction basis without drying or post processing. Furthermore, LGR’s “Extended Range” option provides accurate methane measurements at levels up to 10% mole fraction (without dilution) without reducing precision and sensitivity at typical ambient levels - a unique capability to LGR. Moreover, only LGR’s analyzers provide reliable guaranteed measurements at mole fractions greater than 100 times ambient levels.
