Monitoring of emissions from incinerators is a demanding application for Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems. The emissions produced are highly corrosive, some of the gases are soluble and, because the waste being burnt is constantly changing, the resulting stack gas temperature varies widely.
Improved waste management through automation can deliver more efficient waste treatment, reduced energy and chemical consumption and improved effluent quality. The cost of treatment and trade discharge can thus be significantly reduced.
Sewer Meters monitor sewage level and flow within the sewers. Benefits gained by sewer monitoring include:
(1) Detection of overflow conditions before overflow occurs thereby preventing hazardous environmental events.
(2) Detection of blocked sewer pipes, allowing quick and focused maintenance thereby reducing maintenance costs.
(3)Detection of over-used and under-used pipes for long term municipal planning.
(4) Monitoring of sewage flow in sensitive sites such as flow to the river or sea.
(5) Estimation of...
The EPR regulations have replaced the IPPC regulations and are effective from May 2009 for qualifying companies within the industrial sector and October 2009 within the water sector. They will progressively require industry to minimise waste, reduce product loss and implement improved process control. The legislation will require the operator to self monitor processes and discharges, to demonstrate effective control with particular emphasis on EPR compliance and prevention. The regulating Agency will operate a...
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.
Measuring Fluorine in Industrial and Construction Waste using Benchtop NMR MQC Analyser. Processing and recycling of industrial and construction waste often requires measuremetns of fluorine content in the materials. It mostly relates to monitoring potential emission of toxic fluorine gas and optimisation of the waste processing. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC systems provide a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring fluorine in liquid and dry waste. The NMR technique does not require the use of any chemicals...
Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) are used to measure flue gases from stationary sources at a wide variety of regulated industrial facilities, including power plants, petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants, waste incinerators, pulp and paper producers, and many others. The types of air pollution measured from these sources vary widely based on the industry and process, and many are regulated by government agencies around the world.
Wastewater from a textile facility contains a variety of dyes and organic chemicals from the manufacturing processes that are often difficult to treat. Spectral analysis is well suited for monitoring waste streams to identify problematic dyes prior to treatment. Continuous monitoring of effluent wastewater for BOD and COD helps to ensure effective treatment and quality of effluent to ensure regulatory goals are met prior to discharge.
Continuous monitoring of process streams and waste streams in a dairy industry setting can provide various benefits to the operators. One major benefit is that it is possible to minimize product lost to the waste stream by means of reliable online monitoring of organics (TOC) at various points in the plant. In addition, due to the nitrogen deficient nature of milk wastes it is possible to optimize ammonia dosing by accurately and continuously monitoring the organic loads entering the waste stream.
CairNet is a simple and efficient way to monitor processes and plant surroundings via a wireless communicating network and autonomous (solar panel and battery). CairNet surveys fugitive emissions of toxic gases or odourous gases around waste water treatment plants (WWTP), allowing you to react quickly to gas leaks. CairNet allows the wireless survey of hundreds of measurement points within a 200m radius of the wireless receiver for a much efficient installation cost.
Cairpol systems can be used for fugitive...
Water is fundamental to the manufacturing process in a semiconductor facility. Electronic components are rinsed or washed several times during the producing process with ultrapure water (UPW) to remove residue. Continuous monitoring of organic constituents (TOC) on the influent city water assist with UPW production. Good quality waste streams for the manufacturing process can also be monitored for reuse potential.
Several on-line monitoring technologies such as non-destructive types have become increasingly important due to the increasing automation and the incorporation of new and more efficient processes in the food industry. Food quality and safety of food are the main points of interest, while adjacent processes such as process water and waste water treatment present new challenges to larger food companies.
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...
For large combustion plants and power plants we offer the DCEM 2100 particulate monitor. This monitor is certified to EN 15267 part 3 QAL 1 for all industrial processes including waste incineration. It offers outputs in Transmission, Opacity and mg/m3 (when calibrated against a Standard Reference Method). The DCEM 2100 offers real-time zero and span calibration and an efficient air purge system to prevent optical contamination.
Since 1982, QED has been the leading supplier of air-powered pumps for groundwater sampling, leachate and condensate management, providing expertise in groundwater monitoring, leachate level control and methane recovery systems and equipment to landfills ranging from small municipal facilities to large industrial and military sites, including the leading national and international solid waste management companies.
Industry has had to respond to the requirements of progressive environmental legislation such as the Urban Waste Water Directive, IPC, IPPC and now the EPR (Environmental Permitting Regulations). As successive legislation becomes more stringent, discharge consents have been progressively tightened, and the need for self-regulation has become more important. As a consequence, on-line instrumentation has been installed throughout waste-water industry to continuously to provide trade discharge monitoring and perform...
Industry and municipal waste-water (sewage) treatment plants have had to respond to environmental legislation such as the Urban Waste Water Directive, IPC, IPPC and now the EPR (Environmental Permitting Regulations). As successive legislation becomes more stringent, discharge consents have been progressively tightened, and the need for self-regulation has become more important. As a consequence, on-line instrumentation has been installed throughout waste-water industry to continuously to provide final effluent...
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...
