Monitoring stack emissions is a fundamental requirement for most industrial processes. Our gas analysers, dust monitors and flow monitors are designed for a wide range of applications and can operate as a fully integrated system or as stand alone instruments.
CFCs are used in the manufacture of insecticides and herbicides and the environmental impact of their use must be well controlled. The treatment of CFC emissions to reduce the emissions in the intermediary steps of production needs to be monitored with 100% efficiency. Protea’s portable CFC analysers and continuous CFC monitoring systems can be configured with various sample inlets and analytical modelling to enable multi-samples to be measured on the one system. This means that both inlet and outlet to...

Process control and emissions monitoring in a glass manufacturing plant is a challenge due to high temperature in the flue gas. The OPSIS DOAS system provides the glass industry with an accurate analyser that will operate with a minimum of maintenance. The OPSIS DOAS system is based on a non-contact method that uses an optical path to measure across the duct. A single OPSIS system will measure all relevant gas componensts such as NOX, SO2, CO, CO2, H2O, O2, and others.
Requirements for monitoring emissions to air are governed by EU/UK legislation and are implemented in the form of a permit by the Environment Agency or local authority. The Dr Foedisch muti-component gas analysers continuously extract a gas sample from the exhaust stream via a stack probe into the analyser cabinet.
Both hot and cold gas systems are available, please contact us to discuss which system best suits your requirements.
Process control and emissions monitoring in a mineral wool plant is a challenge due to the presence of phenol and formaldehyde. To use an extractive system in this environment will demand a lot of maintenance. The OPSIS DOAS system is different and provides plants with an accurate analyser that will operate with a minimum of maintenance. The OPSIS DOAS system is based on a non-contact method using an optical measurement path that can operate across the duct.
The Procal 2000 emissions analyser is ideally suited to the harsh environments associated with Paper & Pulp Plants. The in situ, multi-component Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) system has an integrated auto-zero and calibration facility, thereby removing the need for intervention by maintenance staff under normal conditions.
Procal´s analysers are used extensively in reporting and control applications in modern Biomass plants. The flexible and reliable instruments form the heart of the systems, enabling CO, NO2, NO, SO2, H2O, CO2, O2, dust and velocity to be measured.
Protea is the most experienced company in the UK in using FTIR gas analyser to measure emissions. Through running a UKAS-accredited test house and being a manufacturer of gas analysers, we have been involved in FTIR as a supplier and end-user for 10 years.
The Procal 2000 emissions analyser measures Oxides of Nitrogen for process control purposes, typically upstream of the N2O abatement reactor where typical pressures can be as high as 10 barg. The analyser can be supplied in both in situ and extractive configuration to suit customers’ requirements.
A key issue in the measurement of the products of combustion in Cement and Lime industries is the high levels of particulates. The Procal 2000 in situ analyser`s heated probe option is especially suited to this industry as it efficiently deals with variations in process temperature, keeping the probe above the sample dew point and safe from corrosive condensate.
Protea has used our VOC gas analysers in many projects requiring the monitoring of complex mixes of VOCs. In the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, VOC abatement plants such as scrubbers and carbon-bed systems are typical installations where the use of Protea analysers and our VOC analysis expertise have proved valuable to plant operators. They prove a very powerful and flexible tool in both process gas measurements and VOC emissions monitoring. In the laboratory, Protea can deliver instruments with all the...
Many large combustion plants are now required to monitor mass emissions of major pollutants and to do so requires an accurate measurement of stack gas velocity. The VCEM 5100 is certified to EN 15267 part 3 QAL 1 for all industrial processes including waste incineration. It has several key advantages, firstly the sensors optics are not in contact with the hot and dusty environment, the VCEM 5100 can monitor gases at temperatures exceeding 10000C and the analyser requires minimal maintenance. The VCEM 5100 can be...
The industrial chimney's emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are becoming issues of global importance and to have an accurate knowledge about how to test VOC turns into a strategic issue. VOC emissions are quantified and monitored according to standard EN 12619, using FID analyser which uses hydrogen and other reference gases in pressurized cylinder. Operators must then approach the sampling point, often placed several meters from the ground, climbing chimneys of industrial settlements with...
Many of the air quality analyses can be performed with standard laboratory consumables, such as traditional filter papers. However, some analyses require materials with specific features, for example filters with low metal levels.
Common air monitoring applications include:
Air quality testing of ambient environment and emissions. Includes particulate monitoring methods such as PM2.5 and PM10, and chemical analysis such as heavy metals determination.
Asbestos sampling and analysis
A new EC regulation states that diesel engines need to have active cleaning with urea injection in order to reduce NOx emissions. In order to control the urea dosage, a reliable measurement system is required. OPSIS LD500 laser diode gas analyser for monitoring ammonia (NH3), has been tested and approved by German TÜV, in accordance with the EURO VI standard.
