Emission monitoring plays critical roles in a number of diverse industrial processes. AMETEK Land provides expert solutions to support product quality, process efficiency and safety. Our industry-leading gas monitors deliver essential data for industry sectors including metals, non-wovens, paper and plastics.
Monitoring gasses during several processes of mineral processing is essential to improve the efficiency of the plant and therefore lower the costs. AMETEK Land are acknowledged leaders in the field of gas monitoring in multiple industries.
In most combustion process atmospheric nitrogen reacts with oxygen in high temperature conditions to produce nitrogen oxides (NOx). Total NOx production is the sum of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen dioxide NO2. The emissions of these gases are controlled through setting of emission limit values (ELVs) for power plants.
Modern production method of nitric acid production may lead to generation of several different gaseous emission components, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), ammonia NH3 and nitrous oxide N2O. Nitrogen monoxide is an intermediate gaseous product in manufacturing of nitric acid HNO3. NO is formed in a catalytic reaction between ammonia and molecular oxygen O2. But undesirable side reactions may result in formation of nitrogen dioxide NO2 and nitrous oxide N2O. The NO and NO2 emissions can be reduced by use of Selective...
Nitric acid HNO3 is an important intermediate reagent for production of several important end products, such as fertilizers, explosives, dyestuffs/pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, photographic materials, plastics, and synthetic fibers. At nitric acid manufacturing plants, the Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer can be used to measure several gaseous components from the process stream for purposes of process control. A single system can be used to measure the high levels of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen...

Gas monitors controlling heat treatment of metals. Endothermic gas is a mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and other gases that is required for hardening or carburising of steel. By carefully controlling the amounts of each gas and the temperature in the treatment furnace, the steel surface can be hardened to provide long lasting components such as gears and tools.
Most large coal fired power plants and combustion processes are required to monitor CO, NO and NO2 (NOx), SO2 and possibly CO2; in addition the analyser has to be normalised to Standard conditions. For this application CODEL offers the five channel GCEM 40 series which uses Infrared absorption to measure these gases plus moisture, pressure and temperature. The analyser can be configured for single channel operation to monitor any of these gases plus CH4 and HCl.
From bulk gas delivery to cleaning to purging operations, Sierra`s mass flow meters and controllers offer the simplicity and robustness demanded in these applications. Our ability to handle corrosive gases, high flow rates and multiple gases with the same unit makes Sierra`s mass flow meters and controllers a tool-makers choice.
A new EC regulation states that diesel engines need to have active cleaning with urea injection in order to reduce NOx emissions. In order to control the urea dosage, a reliable measurement system is required. OPSIS LD500 laser diode gas analyser for monitoring ammonia (NH3), has been tested and approved by German TÜV, in accordance with the EURO VI standard.
Production of semiconductor materials require extremely clean air supply that help ensure the quality of the materials being manufactured as well as specialized gases to enable production to occur smoothly and efficiently. Teledyne API carries a complete line of Industrial gas process instruments including those that both produce and measure gases in these unique applications. Teledyne API also provides specialty gas instruments designed to help reduce or eliminate Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) in the...
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.
Emissions occur during various stages of the glass-making process, precision combustion measurements are therefore critical. We supply a range of advanced solutions designed specifically for the glass industry, meeting the highest standards of quality and reliability. Glass is used for a variety of purposes, and can be shaped, toughened, coloured, laminated or treated to suit specific requirements. Our measurement systems provide accurate combustion monitoring to support these applications.
Liquefied natural gas owners require improved routine monitoring of facilities for safety, economic and regulatory reasons. Leaking LNG can cause explosions leading to loss of life and property. Loss of product through undetected leaks dramatically reduces a pipeline operator’s profitability. Traditional gas detectors are slow to reach and require a labour intensive process to keep maintained. IR detectors have been used but with limited success because of cross interference from other atmospheric gases.
The combustion operations the iron and steel processes produce emissions which are subject to strict environmental regulations. Plants are required to monitor and control these emissions. This also provides process efficiency benefits.
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.
Typical modern printing processes utilize solvent-based dyes. The evaporation of the dye solvents into the ambient air during the printing process may expose the workers to various chemicals. Depending on the type of solvents in case, the solvents have different long term exposure limits, which should be obeyed. Component specific measurements are necessary to protect the workers from exposure while avoiding unnecessary interruptions to the printing process from false alarms.
