Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • The ratio of gasholder volume (VG) to daily gas production (G) is called the gasholder capacity (C).

    4. Scaling of biogas plants

  • Between the generating chamber and the gasholder is a three-way cock _J_ in the gas connexion, which, when the gasholder is shut off from the generator, brings the latter into communication with a vent-pipe _K_ leading to the open.

    Acetylene, the Principles of Its Generation and Use

  • The location is directly opposite the gasholder works, on land that the HSE believes is unfit for housing and schools

    The John Roan Campaign

  • Every biogas dissemination programme for household plants can and should restrict itself to standard sizes regarding digester and gasholder volumes (e.g. VD = 6, 9, 12, 18 mĀ³).

    3. The biogas dissemination programme

  • For household plants, the digester volume (VD) is about five times as great as the volume of the gasholder (VG).

    2. Biogas technology

  • A disproportionally large gasholder combined with a larger digester would correspond to this peak demand.

    2. Biogas technology

  • These are the floating-drum plant, the plant with a plastic balloon-type gasholder and the fixed-dome plant.

    2. Biogas technology

  • The compensation chamber is consequently the same size as the inner gasholder.

    2. Biogas technology

  • The gas is fed directly from the gasholder to the burner through pipes.

    2. Biogas technology

  • The size of the gasholder depends on the daily gas production and mainly on the gas consumption times.
