  • Area monitoring of specific ppb-level constituents utilizing process gas chromatography

    ABSTRACT In most of the industrialized countries worldwide, increasingly stringent environmental regulations require the continuous reduction of a wide range of emission sources and components. Despite local variations concerning concentrations, absolute emission quantity, target priorities and timetables, regulations typically require active compliance and proof thereof. The impact of ...

  • Insitu analysis of ammonia slip and water vapor using a tunable diode laser for SCR/SNCR optimization and boiler tube surveillance in power plants

    ABSTRACT Environmental Regulations driven by the 1990 Clean Air Act require Power Plants to reduce NOx emissions. SCR's and SNCR's reduce NOx emission by injecting ammonia into the combustion flue gas. which ideally reacts with the NOx to form H?0 and Nj. The efficiency of the SCR SNCR is determined by monitoring the outlet for excess NH3. referred to as NH3 slip. The flue gas sample ...

  • Use of process analytics in cryogenic air separation plants – Case Study

    For further treatment of primary and intermediate materials, large amounts of oxygen and nitrogen are required by many industries, e. g. chemical and petrochemical, metal, semiconductor and food industry, in machine construction and many others. Oxygen and nitrogen are, together with Argon, the main constituents of ambient air. They are obtained from there by means of the air separation ...
