Elkins Earthworks LLC, a provider of landfill gas monitoring solutions based in Wadsworth, Ohio, has announced a new partnership with Switzerland-based Inficon. The combination of a landfill gas (LFG) optimized version of Inficon’s IRwin Methane Detector and Elkins Earthworks’ ProSEM software provides new surface emissions monitoring (SEM) equipment solutions.
Elkins Earthworks says Inficon’s IRwin eliminates the need for a hydrogen-fueled flame ionization detector (FID) instrument in surface emissions monitoring by providing accurate infrared methane detection across a wide range, while Elkins Earthworks’ ProSEM software provides Method 21 calibration verification, instantaneous and integrated scanning functionality, GPS position tracking and real-time mapping for SEM technicians.
Together, Elkins Earthworks says the IRwin and ProSEM allow the company to offer a comprehensive landfill SEM package, saving users time while collecting accurate and detailed SEM data.
“At Elkins Earthworks, we pride ourselves on bringing the best technology available into the landfill gas industry. We also pride ourselves on working with select manufacturers to ensure that the equipment we introduce is tailored to what landfill gas technicians want. This makes their jobs easier, data more accurate and helps them comply with federal regulations,” says Charles Elkins, the CEO of Elkins Earthworks. “Take it from me, once a field technician performing countless SEM events: Our Bluetooth-connected handheld running ProSEM paired with the Inficon IRwin unit is an amazing package.”
