Sampling dust and particulate matter is important as dust and particulate matter can affect the health of human populations, as well as the natural environment. Dust and particulate matter can cause respiratory problems when breathed in by humans. Dust and particulates above 10 micrometer (PM10) are filtered and generally do not enter the lungs.
OPSIS provides real-time, flexible monitoring of particulate matter in the ambient air. Particulate matter monitoring with OPSIS, is a cost-effective solution, is ideally suited for use in modern monitoring stations. It can be remote controlled and includes automatic calibration, features that frees time. The SM200 meets the new regulation for automatic monitoring of PM10 and PM2.5. It also meets the new regulation for particulate matter sampling on filter membranes for further analysis of cadmium, nickel, PAH...
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...
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.
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.
Most industrial processes have dust collectors of some form or other, the most popular being filter bag houses. Very few of these are covered by regulation other than to have a broken bag detector to prevent nuisance dusts escaping and creating a local nuisance. The CODEL StakGard is a low cost Tribo-electric monitor that directly measures mass particulate concentration by sensing the frictional charge created when particles collide with a conductor. The advanced electronics of the StakGard detect this signal and...
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.
Ambient air quality monitoring is the systematic, long-term assessment of pollutant levels by measuring the concentration and types of certain pollutants in the surrounding, outdoor air. Some of these pollutants (commonly called ‘Criteria Pollutants’) are considered hazardous to human health and their levels are regulated by government agencies around the world, including the US EPA. Teledyne API provides a complete line of ambient air quality monitoring instruments, including those for both gas and...
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.
