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.
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.
Protea has used our VOC gas analysers in many projects requiring the monitoring of complex mixes of VOCs. In the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, VOC abatement plants such as scrubbers and carbon-bed systems are typical installations where the use of Protea analysers and our VOC analysis expertise have proved valuable to plant operators. They prove a very powerful and flexible tool in both process gas measurements and VOC emissions monitoring. In the laboratory, Protea can deliver instruments with all the...
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.
Boreal possess an array of products for the power generation industry from emissions stack monitoring, boiler room monitoring, chloride leak detection, and ammonia slip in deNOX. Boreal’s products are tailor made for coal fired power plants, natural gas fired, and waste-to-energy. Whether gas detection is used for safety, process, or environmental reasons, Boreal has you covered.
Several EU directives and national laws in European countries set requirements for continuous monitoring of flue gas emissions at power plants. Further requirements are set on the quality assurance of the installed measurement systems at the plants. The relevant standard in this regard is EN 14181:2004, the quality assurance of automated measuring systems. The standard dictates how to determine that the measurement systems installed for continuous emissions monitoring at a plant operate according to the directives...
NH3 (Ammonia) is a colorless gas with a distinctive pungent smell. Ammonia monitoring is essential in coal-fired power plants, where NH3 is used to reduce NOx emissions. The ammonia consumes all of the NOx, but its high concentration that is needed for these purposes also starts reacting with other things and in the process can clog up filters and cause premature failure of expensive SCR equipment and pre-heaters. Not to mention that these high levels create an irreparable damage to the environment.
Coal power plant: Entrance of SCR denitration device, NOx O2
Exit of SCR denitration device: Measure remanet NH3 after reaction and avoid blocking by crystallization, NH3; Calculate denitrification rate with Nox input, NOx O2
Gas-fired power plant: Counting tail gas emission and realtime concentration, NOx O2 SO2 Temperature pressure flow dust
The act of capturing and storing CO2 produced from large scale combustion plants such as power stations is becoming more and more favourable and feasible. One of the most common post-combustion CO2 capture methods is by absorption. The absorption plant can be added on to the existing combustion process, with the flue gas first passing through an absorption column where the CO2 reacts with an absorber. Amines of different types are used as the absorber. An amine CO2 capture plant can capture as much as 90% of the...
Finding efficient ways to generate, deliver and consume energy resources while reducing pollution is an ongoing quest for the Energy & Utility Industries. HI-Q has developed instrumentation geared toward monitoring emissions and the dispersal of pollutants from power plants and industrial facilities. HI-Q base-line & stack sampling equipment has been used in studies to identify and track the spread of pollutants around the globe.
