Incineration Industry Emissions Monitoring & Analysis - Waste and Recycling - Waste to Energy

Monitoring of emissions from incinerators is a demanding application for Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems. The emissions produced are highly corrosive, some of the gases are soluble and, because the waste being burnt is constantly changing, the resulting stack gas temperature varies widely.

There are several types of Incinerators and Thermal Oxidisers used in a variety of industries and Procal have a wealth of experience in both monitoring emissions and controlling Flue Gas Scrubbing systems, including:

  • Large Domestic Garbage Incinerators
  • Waste to Energy Projects
  • Biohazard & Chemical Industry Incinerators
  • Thermo Oxidisers in the Automotive Industry
  • Chemical & Biological Weapon Destruction
  • Pulp Mill Incinerators
  • Crematoria & Animal Incinerators

The Procal 2000 in situ infra-red analyser with heated probe, resists corrosion from the acid gases by keeping the sample gas above the dew point. With integral automatic zero and calibration capability, this instrument presents low installation and maintenance costs. In addition to monitoring the pollutant emissions, the system can be expanded to incorporate Oxygen, Particulate / Opacity and Velocity. This integrated approach to emissions analysis enables, when required, the concentrations to be normalised, reported on a dry basis and in mass measurements.

For control of Incinerator flue gas scrubbing systems, Procal 2000 produces very stable HCl measurements in the presence of high levels of water vapour, and its rapid response time makes it an ideal instrument for scrubber control.

The analyser works well in the high dust applications of cement plants and has also been successful in high dust incineration applications.

Procal 2000 provides measurements for analysing gases associated with Oxides of Nitrogen removal by Ammonia injection. This de-NOx process, if carried out alongside scrubber measurements using a second analyser, can exploit the multi-analyser control capability of the Procal 1000 controller with sophisticated reporting capability.
