As is the case for many industrial manufacturing processes, emissions are best destroyed through the use of thermal and catalytic oxidation technologies. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are destroyed through the use of high temperature combustion with direct heat recovery. The harmful air pollutants are converted to heat, water vapor and carbon dioxide, creating a destruction efficiency greater than 99%.
Secondary Air Flow Overview: The need for accurate, repeatable & reliable combustion air measurements in power generation plants is critical to efficient operation and safety throughout the entire facility and processes. Accurate secondary air flow measurement to the burners is critical for maintaining the proper air to fuel ratio, resulting in more complete and stable combustion, better performance and lower emissions. Coal-fired power plant applications pose a number of challenges to obtaining these...
The PetroAlert Model 8900 combines the selectivity of gas chromatography with the sensitivity, broad dynamic range, and hydrocarbon selectivity of a flame ionization detector (FID) providing fast analysis of C1-C5 hydrocarbons required in Mud Logging for Oil & Gas exploration. The PetroAlert Model 8900 uses a dual column configuration with timed backflush to vent which is used to strip off moisture and C6+ hydrocarbons. A pre-cut column is used in series with the analytical column. At sample injection a fixed...
The Model 8900 Methane/Non-Methane Analyzer provides direct measurement of Methane and Non-Methane Hydrocarbons. This instrument is utilized in ambient air monitoring networks around metropolitan areas, fence-line monitoring at industrial plants and hazardous waste sites, and in the production of high purity industrial gases. Methane is a naturally occurring gas generated from the decomposition of biological materials and industrial activity. Since Methane is not considered a pollutant it is the Non-Methane...
In hot gas generators, process air is heated under high pressure. Process air is divided into two partial flows, sent as primary air through the burner and conveyed as secondary air directly into the combustion chamber. By mixing the two flows, the process air is brought to the desired temperature.
Wastewater treatment applications contain some of the most corrosive environments on the planet, thanks in large part to high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Potentially combustible levels of methane can also create an explosion hazard, forcing the need for corrosion-resistant, explosion proof HVAC equipment. Fortunately, we address those needs with our InPac line configured with preselected options to provide your application with optimal protection.
Indoor Air Quality and advanced environmental control strategies are playing a growing role in patient safety as hospitals and medical care facilities strive to improve wellness metrics and provide the best in healing environments. Three key factors make attention to indoor air quality particularly important in health care settings.
Mercury and its compounds are highly toxic substances fo r humans. It occurs naturally and exists in various forms: elemental (or metallic); inorganic (e.g. mercuric chloride); and organic (e.g., methyl- and ethylmercury). These forms all have different toxicities and implications for health. Among naturally occurring mercury compounds, methylme rcury exerts a significant influence (neurotoxic action) on human health.
The Road to Environmental Efficiency: Monitoring Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) and Hydrocarbons (CXHY) for Combustion Efficiency and Environmental Compliance.
Why Monitor Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)?
Nitrogen oxides (NOX) are toxic gases common to combustion processes that are highly regulated by state and federal Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA). Exceeding the environmental limit not only compromises worker health and safety, but may require supervisors to shut down a plant and/or pay a fine for noncompliance....
The Kurz Insertion Mass Flow Meter products provide extremely reliable and accurate measurements for the harsh environment of a recovery boiler facility, without restricting airﬂow even in short run ducts.
Use of PROMECON`s innovative measurement technology McON Air in the air volume control in a waste incineration plant. PROMECON`s digital McON Air flow meter, enables enhanced control of the under grate primary air. Lower NOx, better control of combustion, lower grate wear. Also the flue gas flow can be monitored drift free at any point in the process!
