Ammonia (NH3) monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Ammonia is a compound featuring a nitrogen molecule attached to three hydrogen molecules (NH3). It is a colorless gas with a characteristic pungent smell similar to human urine, as urine contains a large amount of ammonia in it.

radiello™ Passive Sampler as a Tool for the Measurement of Atmospheric Ammonia Concentrations and Dry Deposition

by Sigma-Aldrich Co., LLC     based in Bellefonte, PENNSYLVANIA (USA)

The radiello ammonia sampler impregnated with phosphoric acid represents a low-cost, reliable and simple tool for assessing the atmospheric deposition of ammonia at parts per billion (ppb) concentration levels.

Odour Monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Measurement of odours from pulp & paper, feedlots and natural sources is challenging and requires careful selection of instrumentation. Ecotech offers a complete monitoring solution designed for this application. Odours are one of the most common sources of air pollution complaints and may be due to a wide variety of sources from rotting vegetation, animal feedlots, pulp and paper manufacturing, sewerage treatment facilities etc. The measurement of odours is extremely difficult due to the variety of sources of odour and the often very low ppb concentrations that produce odour. However, some industries and applications have a known source of odour resulting from compounds such as mercaptans, hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, typically from industries such as pulp and paper manufacturing, fertiliser production or natural sources such as rotting vegetation. Ecotech is able to offer extremely sensitive instrumentation and systems that enables the low ppb monitoring of these species down to 1 ppb, fully integrated with our data evaluation and reporting software.

Environmental monitoring solution for fertilizer plants

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Measurement of particulates, SO2, NOX, ammonia, fluorides and greenhouse gas emissions from the fertilizer industry requires careful selection of instruments. Ecotech offers a complete monitoring solution tailored to this industry.

Continuous Monitoring of Nitrates and Other Water Quality Parameters

by Hanna Instruments     based in Woonsocket, RHODE ISLAND (USA)

Nitrate is one of the most important parameters in assessing surface and ground water quality. Nitrates are naturally present in surface and ground waters in low concentrations, but are harmful to humans and livestock and cause aquatic ecosystem degradation in high concentrations. Nitrates enter the environment as human-induced pollution from a variety of sources, but the largest source is from agricultural fertilizer runoff . Other sources include wastewater treatment discharge, septic systems, and from pet waste. Nitrate is highly soluble in water and therefore readily leaches into water sources, whereas other human associated pollutants, such as phosphates and ammonia, are not transported as easily. This ability to be quickly transported into ground and natural waters such as drinking water wells, aquifers, reservoirs, lakes, and streams, coupled with its health and environmental implications make nitrate pollution and monitoring of major concern.

Water quality monitoring for dairy industry

by Real Tech Inc.     based in Whitby, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Continuous monitoring of process streams and waste streams in a dairy industry setting can provide various benefits to the operators. One major benefit is that it is possible to minimize product lost to the waste stream by means of reliable online monitoring of organics (TOC) at various points in the plant. In addition, due to the nitrogen deficient nature of milk wastes it is possible to optimize ammonia dosing by accurately and continuously monitoring the organic loads entering the waste stream.

NH3 Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

NH3 (Ammonia) is a colorless gas with a distinctive pungent smell. Ammonia monitoring is essential in coal-fired power plants, where NH3 is used to reduce NOx emissions. The ammonia consumes all of the NOx, but its high concentration that is needed for these purposes also starts reacting with other things and in the process can clog up filters and cause premature failure of expensive SCR equipment and pre-heaters. Not to mention that these high levels create an irreparable damage to the environment.

Measurement solution for high NH3 monitoring from wastewater

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

Protea was asked to supply a high level ammonia (NH3) measurement system for a waste water treatment plant. The reflux drums at the inlet to two ammonia stripping towers needed to be measured continuously. Protea designed a solution based around our Solus TDLAS analyser platform and a high level dilution system. The Solus analyser was configured for NH3 measurements in the range 0-500ppm. A dilution system incorporating special dilution probe and 19` control panel was installed before the analyser. This gave a dilution level of 600:1, enabling the NH3 analyser to measure in the range 0-30% Volume.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for process NOx measurement

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Nitric acid HNO3 is an important intermediate reagent for production of several important end products, such as fertilizers, explosives, dyestuffs/pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, photographic materials, plastics, and synthetic fibers. At nitric acid manufacturing plants, the Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer can be used to measure several gaseous components from the process stream for purposes of process control. A single system can be used to measure the high levels of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen dioxide NO2, as well as water vapor H2O, nitrous oxide N2O, carbon monoxide CO, carbon dioxide CO2 and ammonia NH3. The fixed installation products for these purposes are the Gasmet™ CEM II measurement system, and the Gasmet™ FCX Gas Analyzers, both of which utilize the FTIR measurement technique for simultaneous multicomponent analysis of the sample gas.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for nitric acid process

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Modern production method of nitric acid production may lead to generation of several different gaseous emission components, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), ammonia NH3 and nitrous oxide N2O. Nitrogen monoxide is an intermediate gaseous product in manufacturing of nitric acid HNO3. NO is formed in a catalytic reaction between ammonia and molecular oxygen O2. But undesirable side reactions may result in formation of nitrogen dioxide NO2 and nitrous oxide N2O. The NO and NO2 emissions can be reduced by use of Selective Catalytic Reduction unit (SCR), which deploys ammonia gas NH3 to limit emissions of NO and NO2. A modern nitric acid plant needs to monitor the emissions of these gases.

Gas Detection Solutions for Fertilizer Manufacturing

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

Ammonia is a notoriously difficult compound to measure accurately and reliably using standard chemical sampling techniques. The great advantage of the optical laser gas detection technique for quantitative ammonia monitoring is that the optical measurement does not affect the air being sampled – and so a true, undisturbed value for ammonia concentration can be determined. The very high resolution and specificity of the laser method also means that is no interference from other gases in the air (for example, water vapor) – such interferences complicate other optical techniques using IR or UV.
