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.
The Opsis monitoring solution for mining and smelting applications is based on either DOAS or laser diode technique. Opsis non-contact monitoring solutions are very well suited for applications in the Mining and Smelting Industries, as the flue gas conditions often involves high temperatures and high dust concentrations. The on-line, open-path systems are used for monitoring HF, sulphur dioxide, SO3 and HCl in potrooms, in fence-line applications and in continuous emissions monitoring.
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.
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.
From the environmental point of view, an issue is any solid, liquid or gaseous substance introduced into the atmosphere that can cause air pollution. Given the wide variety of substances present in the atmosphere, have been proposed several methods of classification: Primary pollutants can be of gaseous or particulate.
The metal industry comprises a large variety of different branches, beginning with metal winning and recovery, metallurgy, metalworking and extending to manufacture of machines and devices for which metal finishing and electroplating are indispensable process steps for quality standards. These industries face the difficulties of improved process control and lower environmental stress. AppliTek implements on-line monitoring in specific processes of the metal industry to increase process efficiency and lower...
The Opsis open path monitoring system is an excellent tool for monitoring air quality, fugitive emissions and gas leaks at industrial sites. By arranging monitoring paths strategically at locations outside the borderline of an industrial area, fugitive emissions and gas leaks will effectively be detected. By combining the measured gas data with meteorological parameters information such as where the pollution sources are located and the strength of the emissions can be calculated, using the EnviMan software.
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.
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.
Various pollutants form in the cement manufacturing process, especially when alternative fuels and waste-derived fuels are used. Typically a cement kiln using these fuels is a required to monitor hydrogen chloride (HCl). Gasmet CEM II is EN 15267-3 approved for HCl measurement in 0 … 15 mg/Nm3 range.High process temperatures result in generation of more nitrogen oxides (NOx) than in typical municipal waste incineration.
Waste incinerators, cement plants and power plants need good and reliable measurements of total gaseous mercury. The measurement of total gaseous mercury is a challenge due to chemical reactions and contamination. The installed systems will often require a lot of maintanence still not giving reliable results.
OPSIS non-contact monitoring solutions, based on either DOAS or TDL techniques, are very well suited for applications in the mining and smelting Industries, as the flue gas conditions often involve high temperatures and high dust concentrations.
GasFinderFC can be configured to monitor CO and CO2 simultaneously, and combined with the short open path probe, can be set up across roads to monitor instantaneous emissions of these gases from vehicles passing through the beam. Gross polluters can be identified and their number plates photographed.
OPSIS offers fully automated system solutions for continuous monitoring in power plants. The monitoring systems have been tested and approved by the German TÜV and the U.S. EPA among others, for the best performance and longest calibration interval.
