The nature of steel manufacturing processes places severe limitations on the monitoring methods that can be used. Aggressive environments combined with high levels of particulates and gases make the choice very limited.
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.
The Xact® 625i combined with ADAPT software creates the industry's most powerful tool for high time resolution detection of airborne metals. The Xact® 625i measures trace metals at very low detection limits at time resolutions down to 15 minutes. The ADAPT package captures corresponding wind speed and wind direction data, then seamlessly integrates the measurements into wind regression analyses available at the touch of a button. This creates the most single most powerful fence line/ source identification...
The Opsis monitoring solution in aluminium smelters is based on either DOAS or laser diode technique. The on-line, open-path systems are used for monitoring HF and sulphur dioxide in potrooms, in fence-line applications and in continuous emissions monitoring. Opsis has long experience of monitoring in aluminium smelters.
Steel mills include a multitude of activities that generate gaseous emissions. Besides continuous emissions stack monitoring, the applications in a steel mill also include process mesaurements that provides important data to the operators in order to optimize the steel making process.
