Hydrogen Sulfide Sensor (Synthetic Diamond film)


  • NOTE: Facility for online Application for transfer of technology would be available soon...

Hydrogen sulfide is a toxic and flammable gas, usually generated in sewages, swamps, mines etc, which necessitates the detection of the gas in sub ppm level as it reacts strongly with living tissues and attacks the central nervous system. Higher concentration or prolonged exposure of H2S paralyses the olfactory system.  We have exploited surface conductivity of hydrogen terminated diamond films to detect trace levels (<1ppm) of hydrogen sulfide at room temperature.

Hydrogen sulfide is a toxic and flammable gas, usually generated in sewages, swamps, mines etc. Hydrogen sulfide gas detector finds application in petroleum refineries, paper mills, tanneries and other industries, laboratories, and in heavy water plants where it is used as a process gas. It is imperative that the gas should be detected in ppm levels in air by selective and sensitive sensors. We have exploited surface conductivity of hydrogen terminated diamond films to detect trace levels (<1ppm) of hydrogen sulfide at room temperature.

SALIENT FEATURES

  • Room temperature operation, hence low thermal budget and low power requirement.
  • Stable and long life (> 2 years).
  • Suitable to operate at temperatures up to 100°C.

APPLICATIONS

  • Environmental monitoring for H2S in plants.
  • H2S gas detection and alarm systems.

Hydrogen sulfide is a toxic and flammable gas, usually generated in sewages, swamps, mines etc. Hydrogen sulfide gas detector finds application in petroleum refineries, paper mills, tanneries and other industries, laboratories, and in heavy water plants where it is used as a process gas. Hydrogen sulfide reacts strongly with living tissues and attacks the central nervous system. Human nose is sensitive to trace amount (0.2 ppm) of H2S, which is recognized by a distinctive odor of rotten eggs. Higher concentration or prolonged exposure of H2S paralyses the olfactory system. Thus it is imperative that the gas must be detected in ppm levels in air by selective and sensitive sensors. 

Diamond is a unique material with a wide range of mechanical, optical, electrical, thermal and chemical properties. Though undoped diamond is an excellent insulator, hydrogen terminated diamond shows p-type surface conductivity, which has been exploited to detect trace levels (<1ppm) of hydrogen sulfide at room temperature.

SALIENT FEATURES

  • Room temperature operation, hence low thermal budget and low power requirement.
  • Stable and long life (> 2 years).
  • Suitable to operate at temperatures up to 100°C.

SPECIFICATIONS

The sensor response is linear from 0.5 to 10 ppm of H2S. Response time (~80% ) for 1 ppm  is typically < 30s and recovery time (~20%) is ~ 30 min. Though the sensor is operated at room temperature normally, it can reliably operate up to an ambient temperature of 100°C.

APPLICATIONS

  • Environmental monitoring for H2S in plants.
  • H2S gas detection and alarm systems.
