I am working on an agriculture scale biodigester (Pressure=25 mbarg) which I would like to use a constant flow of biogas to power a heater. However, as biogas is used up, the pressure inside the biodigester decreases which results in the flow rate of biogas to decrease too.

Does anyone know any simple method to automatically keep the pressure supplied to a burner from biodigester constant? My biodigester is made of plastic like material and expands or contracts depending on the pressure.


Are there pressure regulators for very low inlet pressures (25mbar)?

I have already considered that. The problem is that the size of it needs to be extremely big which is not viable for a farm.
