LGX-50 for Methane in Water

Hydraulic fracturing, also called fracking, is a well stimulation technique involving the fracturing of bedrock formations by a pressurized liquid. The process creates cracks in the deep-rock formations through which natural gas, petroleum, and brine will flow. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Clean Water Act applies to surface stream discharges from shale gas wells. Natural gas drilling can result in discharges to surface waters. The discharge of this water is subject to requirements under the Clean Water Act. Dissolved gas, called RSK or Shale Gas, and headspace analysis is becoming more prevalent in today’s environmental lab. There is a constant need to analyze the dissolved gas content of aqueous solutions. This increase is driving the need to automate this testing. EST analytical now provides a solution that automates this testing, making your laboratory more productive and reliable. Now your lab can stay EPA 5035 and (ASTM) Method D8028 compliant when running RSK-175. RSK is a time consuming, labor intensive analysis that requires manual preparation of sample vials prior to the headspace analysis. The LGX-50 liquid gas extractor completely automates the sample prep for headspace analysis of Methane, Ethane, Ethene, and other compounds in water.

Key Features

Maximize Your Productivity

  • Automatically process RSK-175 samples
  • Complies with ASTM D8028
  • Holds up to 50 samples allowing labs increased sample throughput
  • Uses optical sensors eliminate lost vial errors, syringe not-home errors, and elevator not-home errors all of which reduces lab productivity
  • Provides a rugged and robust XYZ design that maximizes sample throughput

Easier to Use

  • Offers intuitive software made for the end user enabling faster processing of dissolved gas samples
  • With remote access the lab can check on samples from any location when connected to the lab’s server
