The article discusses the significance of proper monitoring of caloric value in mixed gaseous fuels in the U.S. It states the need of using a micro combustion calorimeter with the addition of a controlled amount of hydrogen to sample stream to stabilize the flame and keeps the measurement accurate. It highlights the result of continuous monitoring of calorific value including the prevention of errors from water vapor condensation and allows combustible gases with low vapor pressures.
