With the advent of specific process emission limits being defined, continuous particulate monitoring has become a regulatory requirement for many industries.
smoke stack #1Particulate monitoring requires the measurement of the mass concentration of particulate matter in stack emissions to atmosphere. There is no known method of continuously measuring particulate concentration by direct measurement and therefore, all continuous particulate measurement methods are inferential.
Each method involves the measurement...
Traffic, especially in urban locations, is one of the greatest contributors to air pollution. Traffic produces a variety of different pollutants that include particulates, NO2, NO, CO, hydrocarbons and in some cases SO2.
The monitoring of roadside pollution can be challenging as often it is difficult to find suitable locations for large air quality monitoring systems and many sites that are available can be too far away to be representative of roadside air pollution.
Roadside pollution concentrations can change...
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.
Opsis provides state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, fully meeting the high standards of monitoring performance and reliability that the cement industry requires. The Opsis in situ systems are designed to withstand environments with high particulate levels and high temperatures.
In recent years, new regulations have been introduced governing emissions from ships. With the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopting Annex VI of MARPOL designed to limit sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrous oxides (NOx) and particulate matter emissions, as well as introducing emission control areas (ECAs) to reduce emissions of those air pollutants further in designated sea areas, ship owners/operators can face hefty fines for failing to meet these new requirements on the “polluter pays” principle.
The exhaust gas from combustion engines is a complex mixture of gases and particulate matter. The composition of the gas may change rapidly. Multicomponent analysis of exhaust gases can be performed with a Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer with a response time (T90) of one second. The winning combination is the result using of a small volume gas sample cell, a powerful sample pump and a fast detector with liquid nitrogen cooling. The analyzer, sampling system and computer can be assembled on a cart for use in a...
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.
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
Measurement of particulates, SO2, NOX, ammonia, fluorides and greenhouse gas emissions from the fertilizer industry requires careful selection of instruments. Ecotech offers a complete monitoring solution tailored to this industry.
Ormantine offers a wide range of products and services to meet the array of different needs that arise in the oil and gas industries. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), benzene, and other compounds are released during drilling, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and other extraction procedures. Monitor NOx emissions from heavy duty equipment, particulate matter, and ground level ozone, the formation of which is contributed to by VOCs from processing, transportation, and storage of oil and gas.
Measurement of particulates, SO2, NOX, CO, hydrocarbons and greenhouse gas emissions from the mineral process industries requires careful selection of instrumentation. Ecotech offers a complete monitoring solution tailored to this industry.
Traffic means mobility and air emissions. Thanks to economical advantages, diesel engine becomes more and more popular, but particle emission is strictly restricted by regulations. Determining the weight of particulate matter (PM) is a key task in the automotive industry and one which is likely to become even more important as emissions standards become stricter. To allow fast and easy measurement of particulate matter at any time, METTLER TOLEDO has developed new filter weighing solutions.

STEEL INDUSTRY: Conducted particulate testing and continuous emission monitoring of a rod mill exhaust stack. In addition, testing was performed to determine emissions associated with a slow cooling pen associated with ball mill production.
Particle size, particle concentration and other physical characterization analyses are critical to many environmental applications. Regulatory agencies in the environmental sphere demand strict compliance to standards and discharge regulations. Physical testing of samples for parameters such as particle size and concentration can give insight to the process control engineer on how effective and compliant a discharge handling system is operating. Particulate loading from both air emissions and waste water discharge...
