  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Controlling natural gas usage costs – Case Study

    A large American engine manufacturer required mass flow meters to measure natural gas usage in each of the eleven buildings on their campus. Natural gas is used to fire furnaces and other equipment. Because each facility is a separate profit center, fuel and utility costs are allocated by building. They must also provide an accurate usage report of natural gas to the Department of Natural ...

  • Optimizing air flows to aeration basins – Case Study

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then ...

  • Bringing precision to steel production - Case Study

    Aluminum and steel manufacturers use mass flow controllers to inject purification, stirring and shielding gases into their melting, casting and annealing processes. Precise, automated gas flow control reduces toxic emissions and material costs.  Final purification of aluminum is accomplished by bubbling a mixture of argon and chlorine gases through the molten metal. This process separates ...

  • Reducing the cost of emissions testing – Case Study

    In the early 1970¹s, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was formed in response to growing concern about air quality. The EPA developed emissions regulations that targeted the carcinogenic impact of engine exhaust, and set tough regulatory standards for manufacturers to develop cleaner engines. Engine makers needed an instrument that could accurately measure the quantity of ...

  • Choosing flow monitors for CEMS applications

    As a result of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments1, electric power plants must reduce their emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxides—the primary causes of acid rain. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in its proposed rules2, designates the 111 Phase I fossil-fueled plants ^roughly 268 boiler units) that must have continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) installed, ...

  • Emissions measurement - Discover a new way of particulate emissions measurement for light-duty vehicles

    New article from Sierra in Automotive Testing International Magazine entitled "Emissions Measuremen" explores how combining partial flow sampling and direct exhaust flow measurement provides an ideal solution for particulate emissions measurement from light-duty vehicles. With the phase-in of LEV-3 this year targeting a 3mg/mile PM limit, followed by a 1mg/ mile PM limit phasing-in by 2025, ...

  • Paint and Coatings VOC Emission Control - Case Study

    Colt Technologies designed and installed two MAXIM Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) at a new railcar manufacturing facility. Each RTO controls Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and paint spray booth emissions from 40,000 scfm of exhaust air from paint spray booths and interior lining operations at the plant. The RTO systems reduce VOC emissions by 98% utilizing custom ceramic heat transfer ...
