Question
How much carbon dioxide (CO2) is used by the Orbisphere 6110, and will it be released into the atmosphere?
Summary
Orbisphere 6110 CO2 consumption
Answer
The Orbisphere 6110 is not a closed loop system and will exhaust a small amount of CO2 from the analyzer. The operating purge rate is 0.25 mL/s, with a 5 second cycle full blast every 10 minutes which will equal about 40 L/day of gas.

A 50 L cylinder of liquid CO2 will generate 27000 L of CO2 gas, so you will end up with 650 days of gas supply.
