Fluoride emissions monitoring in aluminum smelters

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Production of aluminum from its ores at aluminum smelters results in carbon dioxide CO2, carbon monoxide CO, sulfur dioxide SO2, and hydrogen fluoride HF gas emissions during the electrolytic process phase to the atmosphere. The gas emissions need to be monitored. Typically the smelters have emission limit values (ELVs) for sulfur dioxide and hydrogen fluoride emissions. These emissions should be measured accurately and with good precision, to ensure the smelter does not exceed its emission limit values. In addition several fluoride compounds may be produced in the electrolytic bath in the event of an oxygen shortage. These compounds include carbon tetrafluoride CF4, hexafluoroethane C2F6, sulfur hexafluoride SF6, and silicon tetrafluoride SiF4. These additional emission components are problematic, as they have high Global Warming Potential (GWP) values. The GWP is a relative measure designed to demonstrate how much heat a greenhouse gas (GHG) traps in the atmosphere. Emission of one kilogram of carbon tetrafluoride into the atmosphere today has the potential of heating the atmosphere as much as 7,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide over the next 100 years.

Opacity monitoring for continuous emissions

by DynOptic Systems Ltd     based in Brackley, UNITED KINGDOM

The history of air pollution regulation dates back as far as the 13th century when in 1273, Edward I (Longshanks) of England prohibited the burning of sea coal in London. The smoke produced by its combustion was considered detrimental to human health. By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, regulations were being passed that sought to control air pollution predominantly for smoke and odour control. Traditionally, regulators were concerned with the visual impact of the discharge from a stack or chimney. Therefore, emission limits were expressed in terms of colour or opacity. Modern methods for opacity measurement still use the darkness of the stack gases to measure the amount of smoke or dust emitted within the exhaust gases.

Emission monitoring for cement plants

by Kurz Instruments, Inc.     based in Monterey, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Kurz Thermal Insertion Mass Flow Meter systems provide proven accuracy and reliability in the most difficult of EPA Title IV applications with the ability to survive for long periods of time without maintenance.

Simultaneous Air Monitoring over Multiple Fixed Sample Paths

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Application: Simultaneous monitoring over multiple fixed sample paths either in-situ, extractive, or open path. Example: HF scrubber inlet, outlet, and stack monitoring in primary aluminum smelter.

Paper & Pulp Industry Emissions Monitoring

by Procal - Parker Hannifin Corp     based in Peterborough, UNITED KINGDOM

The Procal 2000 emissions analyser is ideally suited to the harsh environments associated with Paper & Pulp Plants.  The in situ, multi-component Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) system has an integrated auto-zero and calibration facility, thereby removing the need for intervention by maintenance staff under normal conditions.

Stack emissions monitoring

by Codel International Ltd     based in Bakewell, UNITED KINGDOM

Monitoring stack emissions is a fundamental requirement for most industrial processes. Our gas analysers, dust monitors and flow monitors are designed for a wide range of applications and can operate as a fully integrated system or as stand alone instruments.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for stack testing according to EPA test method 320

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has two stack testing methods for FTIR gas analyzers. Method 320 is an FTIR method for measuring wide range of organic and inorganic pollutants. Method 321 is a specific version for measuring hydrogen chloride HCl at cement kilns producing Portland cement. These methods define a quality assurance and control processes for verifying the accuracy of the results. The requirements for analytical equipment and software are defined on 40 CFR Part 60 Appendix B Performance Specification 15. Gasmet™ Gas Analyzers and Calcmet™ software have been designed to take the requirements of the performance specification into account.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for stack testing

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Several EU directives and national laws in European countries set requirements for continuous monitoring of flue gas emissions at power plants. Further requirements are set on the quality assurance of the installed measurement systems at the plants. The relevant standard in this regard is EN 14181:2004, the quality assurance of automated measuring systems. The standard dictates how to determine that the measurement systems installed for continuous emissions monitoring at a plant operate according to the directives and regulations set. Two major parts of this on-going quality assurance cycle are the QAL2 and AST procedures. A test laboratory performs tests on the systems on-site, and determines whether the systems fulfill the set requirements or not.

Multi-Metals CEMs

by Cooper Environmental     based in Beaverton, OREGON (USA)

Cooper Environmental's Xact 640 has the unique ability to generate high time resolution metals measurement in stacks. This unique capability has the potential to qualify as a substitution for the combination of a Hg/ PM CEMs application as well as the potential for a pollution control system feedback loop that could result in the reduction of pollution control consumables. Our systems have been site certified for compliance measurements at hazardous waste incinerator and secondary lead smelter sites.

Determination of TOC in stack

by Pollution Srl     based in Budrio, ITALY

PROBLEM: The industrial chimney's emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are becoming issues of global importance and to have an accurate knowledge about how to test VOC turns into a strategic issue. VOC emissions are quantified and monitored according to standard EN 12619, using FID analyser which uses hydrogen and other reference gases in pressurized cylinder. Operators must then approach the sampling point, often placed several meters from the ground, climbing chimneys of industrial settlements with instruments and cylinders. Is it possible making this job easier and safer? SOLUTION: Using the Polaris FID analyser produced by Pollution Srl, Italy, it is possible to carry out the VOCs monitoring according to EN 12619 without lifting accessories and heavy weights typically involved with FID analyser. Polaris FID analyser complies with this standard regulation but what is really a breakthrough and cutting-edge, is the unmatched portability and the next generation technology

Continuous emissions monitoring for aluminium smelters

by Opsis AB     based in Furulund, SWEDEN

Process control and emissions monitoring in an aluminium smelter is a challenge due to the high concentrations of HF. To use an extractive system in this environment will demand a lot of maintenance.
