Process control and emissions monitoring in a chemical plant is a challenge due to corrosive gases, high dust load, and high temperatures. To use an extractive system in this environment will demand a lot of maintenance.
Chemical plants that produce high quantities of phenols (plastics, pesticides and pharmaceutical industries) and other aromatic organic compounds are excellent candidates for wastewater characterization via spectral analysis. Chemicals that contain conjugated double bonds absorb UV radiation remarkably well. The benefits include higher precision in process control as well as optimization of wastewater treatment.
GasFinder2 can be permanently installed to monitor chemical and petroleum plants for both combustible and toxic gases. GasFinder2 can be used to replace arrays of point sensors for perimeter monitoring. A single light path will replace many point sensors. With GasFinder2 perimeter monitoring, all gas dispersed from a facility is detected and logged.
The Opsis gas monitoring system is designed for monitoring in stacks and gas ducts in chemical industries, both in order to increase plant efficiency and to monitor emissions. The Opsis systems have been internationally approved by e.g. the German TÜV and the U.S. EPA.
Titanium dioxide is the most important white pigment used in the polymer industry. It is widely used, because it efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into a plastic product.
Many industrial operations take place over lengthy time periods and operations often continue 24 hours a day. By implementing a 24 hour noise monitoring system, with real-time communication and alert notification, a plant can demonstrate to the community and regulatory agencies that they are sensitive to the community and prepared to root-cause and correct any problems that may arise.
As a specialist manufacturer of analytics, AppliTek is your one-stop-shop for state of the art analytical answers to the specific needs of the chemical industry. Ethylene dichloride (EDC) is a chemical liquid that is not found naturally in the environment, and classified as a hazardous chemical. Process control, as implemented by AppliTek, will significantly increase output, product quality, and decrease production hazards. Environmental compliance is another value-added benefit of the AppliTek technology.

Measurement of SO2, sulfuric acid mist and greenhouse gas emissions from sulfuric acid plants requires careful selection of instrumentation. Ecotech offers a complete monitoring solution tailored to this industry.
The process control of a sulphuric acid plant needs good and reliable detection of gas phase sulphur dioxide (SO2). To measure SO2 is a challenge due to the corrosive environment and high concentration of SO2. Several places in the process needs to be monitored and to transport the sample gas is difficult. A large dynamic range is needed as the SO2 concentration can vary between 15% volume and a few mg/m3. Most systems installed need a lot of maintenance, sometimes as often as every day.
Hydrocarbons are a family of organic chemicals consisting of carbon and hydrogen atoms arranged in a variety of ways. Hydrocarbons are found naturally in crude oil and are released into the environment with its combustion (power plants, home heaters etc).
Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.
This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.
Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and...
