    Continuous emissions monitoring for glass manufacturing

    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.

    Continuous emissions monitoring for mineral wool production

    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.

  • Environmental Monitoring - Water Screening for Pollutants - Pesticide Screening

    Water screening for the detection of pollutants owning to large classes of chemical compounds such as triazine, fenylurea, diazine and phenolic pesticides can be performed. The presence of environmental pollutants can be determined utilizing biological materials such as photosynthetic biomediators (Plants, Algae, Cyanobacteria) and enzymes (e.g. Laccase or Tyrosinase). AMPBIO-ITO Light provides amperometric measurements performed on electro-active biological material suspended, deposited or grown on an Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) electrode, before and after the injection of the analyte under test. OPTICBIO-Multicell Survival optical is based on multicell arrays for biological material survival/storage and fluorescence measurement for the control of the physiological activity.

  • Cloud Point of Diesel Fuel #3074

    The Cloud Point of a diesel fuel is the temperature below which wax forms giving the fuel a cloudy appearance. This parameter is an important property of the fuel since the presence of solidified waxes can clog filters and negatively impact engine performance. The traditional laboratory methods for the measurement of Cloud Point are optical in nature, but rely on cooling the fuel for the wax formation to occur. Guided Wave’s process analyzers can measure compositional changes in the fuel that will be directly related to the wax formation and hence the Cloud Point. This note will discuss the use of Guided Wave hardware and software tools for the measurement of the Cloud Point of diesel fuel using fiber optic-based, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR can be applied in real time directly in process.

  • Dust monitoring of exhaust gases from manufacturing processes

    DynOptic dust monitors use the innovative Dynamic Detection Principle (DDP) to measure dust and particulate within exhaust gases from various manufacturing processes. DDP, or optical scintillation as it sometimes referred to, measures the dynamic fluctuation in light transmission as dust particles move through a light beam. This dynamic fluctuation derives from temporal distributions of the dust particles which attenuate the light beam. The more dust present in the exhaust, the greater the amplitude of these fluctuations. DDP instruments calculate the dynamic response, or the ratio of light variation to light intensity, which for particular applications, is proportional to dust concentration and when calibrated against standard reference measurements, this can be presented as a reading in mg/m³.
