Motor vehicle emissions are a major source of air pollution in urban areas and impact the lives of billions of people every day around the world. Motor vehicle exhaust contains toxic chemicals that are harmful to people’s health when exposed at certain levels. These toxic fumes cause smog in the atmosphere, which can affect very broad regional air sheds and contribute to the formation of cancer. Teledyne API has several products specifically designed to meet the challenging demands of near-roadside air...
Dekati has over 25 years of experience in providing measurement solutions for emission measurements. Today, our selection of measurement solutions for stationary source emission measurements include both real-time and gravimetric detection of concentration and particle size distribution. Our extensive line of sample conditioning devices enable not only environmental emission measurements but also measurements directly from the combustion zone and before heat exchangers and used flue gas cleaning devices. Dekati...
Urban pollution is a problem that concerns more and more people in charge of public health. In large cities, car emissions are an important source of atmospheric pollution. This problem is growing as the traffic keeps on increasing. BTEX compounds are present in car emissions. It is therefore important to be able to analyze them with short analysis cycle duration and on a continuous and automatic way.
Warehouse Optimization: Balancing Equipment Performance and Worker Safety Through Emissions Measurements and Air Quality Monitoring. Successful warehouse functionality is dependent on both maximizing equipment performance and providing a safe and healthy environment for workers that encourages productivity. However, these two factors are often at odds with each other as warehouse equipment such as forklifts, burnishes and delivery trucks emit toxic gases that can have the potential to create poor indoor air...
Common Museum Air Problems: Museums, art galleries, archives and archival exhibits feature precious objects that play a vital role in cultures around the world. The preservation industry must address indoor air quality. A long-term view drives requirements to prevent deterioration in the life of these treasures. Recognition of multiple sources of pollution may include indoor pollutants such as cleaning chemicals, materials (paint), and pollutants brought in by visitors and employees. Outdoor sources might be...
To measure the ambient air quality at airports is a challenge. The monitoring site needs to be representative for background levels and not dependant on changes in local traffic. A large number of gaseous components need to be measured with high accuracy and high availability. The OPSIS DOAS system provides the user with a fast system that gives high availability at low cost. The impact of aircraft take-offs and landings can easily be followed on-line. The OPSIS system can also monitor fugitive emissions from...
To monitor benzene emissions can be a challenge, but OPSIS makes it easy. Benzene is an aromatic hydrocarbon liquid that evaporates quickly if exposed to ambient air. It is one of the most commonly used substances in the chemical industry and it is known to cause cancer. For this reason, refineries in the United States must start monitoring fugitive emissions of benzene from January 30, 2018. This is part of the 2015 U.S. EPA Petroleum Refinery rule. In case a yearly rolling average of benzene concentrations...
Example: Packaging. Similar tasks: Coating, Automobile industry, paint production.Different production processes lead to decentralised ventilation of emission sources. These decentralised ventilations are consolidated within a central air pollution control system.
An examination of the literature shows that the Tekran 2537 is the choice for measurements of mercury aboard research aircraft. Several research groups in Europe and North America have used the Tekran 2537 on an aircraft platform for point source plume studies, free troposphere speciation characterization, vertical profiles, characterizing emission source regions and even the stratosphere (http://www.caribic-atmospheric.com/instrum/hg.html). Normally, the Tekran 2537 requires simple modifications for aircraft...
Opsis systems provide high-performance monitoring of the emission activities within an airport. The rapid system allows on-line monitoring of the emissions from each aircraft at take-offs and landings, monitoring of fugitive emissions from stationary sources and differing of the airport sources from the surrounding pollution sources.
Fixed CEMS (Continuous Emissions Monitors) Measure at One Location
CEMS are fixed units that typically only measure from one sample location which is usually on a main centralized stack. This main stack is often fed by several separate emissions sources throughout the plant such as boilers, heaters, engines, ovens, and furnaces.
If the CEM is measuring emissions that are higher than the regulated or permitted limits, it can be difficult to determine the source of the high emissions which could be from...
Formaldehyde (HCHO) is the simplest aldehyde species and is present, or generated by, many sources (both natural and industrial). It is classed as a substance that is toxic and harmful to human health.
Hydrogen sulfide is the chemical compound with the formula H2S. H2S is colorless, toxic and flammable and is responsible for the foul odour of rotten eggs and flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide often results from sulfur reducing bacteria in nonorganic matter (in the absence of oxygen), such as in swamps and sewers (anaerobic digestion). H2S also occurs in volcanic gases, natural gas and some well waters.
Today, steel production is becoming more and more technology intensive. Advanced control systems are under continuous development and large potentials to exploit their benefits therefore exist. The control systems optimize process operations leading to reduced processing time, reduced maintenance costs, increased energy efficiency, improved product quality and consistency as well as better emission control.
Application: measurements of single gas species over pipeline or similar extremely long emission source. Application: measuring CH4 emissions from a natural gas pipeline through a large densely populated and congested area.
Facilitates Data Management for Tank Emissions Reporting; VisionMonitor Software leverages existing technology investments you have deployed to run your current operations. It simplifies the process of gathering tank inventory data by linking to existing internal systems, automating data collection from these systems via a scheduler, and by providing a path for manual input when required for sources such as diesel engines, package boilers, etc.
ALUMINUM INDUSTRY: Performed a range of test measurements required by the promulgation of the Secondary Aluminum MACT standards. Testing included measurements of Hazardous Air Pollutants for establishing Area vs. Major Source Determinations, as well as dioxin/furan compounds associated with chlorine emissions from fluxing operations.
Accurate, dependable real time results in harsh environments. Industrial processes typically result in some of the most challenging gas measurement environments; high-temperature, high humidity, particulate matter, and gas mixtures of complex and variable composition.
