  • Insitu analysis of ammonia slip and water vapor using a tunable diode laser for SCR/SNCR optimization and boiler tube surveillance in power plants

    ABSTRACT Environmental Regulations driven by the 1990 Clean Air Act require Power Plants to reduce NOx emissions. SCR's and SNCR's reduce NOx emission by injecting ammonia into the combustion flue gas. which ideally reacts with the NOx to form H?0 and Nj. The efficiency of the SCR SNCR is determined by monitoring the outlet for excess NH3. referred to as NH3 slip. The flue gas sample ...

  • NH3 Slip Monitoring in Fluidized-bed Catalytic Cracking Using the LDS 6 Gas Analyzer – Case Study

    Fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) units are used in refineries to convert low value heavy oils into more valuable lighter compounds. Cracking units are sources of emissions of pollutants (e.g. NOx) and must comply with concentration permits set by local or federal authorithies. Modern technologies are applied to reduce the content of pollutants and to monitor certain gas compounds (here: NH3) in ...
