  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • The ‘ins and outs’ of air quality monitoring

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidance on ‘Air pollution - outdoor air quality and health.’ In the following article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors Ltd, explains why there will need to be more funding for monitoring if the mitigation measures mentioned in the guidance are to be implemented effectively. Jim also ...

  • Particulate Control Strategies for Incineration

    Abstract This paper discusses various particulate emission control strategies that can be employed for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Municipal Sewage Sludge, and Industrial Waste Incineration facilities. An example will be given of a particulate control installation that successfully cleans off-gases from an incinerator at a large photographic products plant. Data supporting a theoretical ...


  • Selection of Particulate Monitors

    The installation and operation of continuous particulate emission monitors in industrial processes has become well developed and common practice in industrial stacks and ducts over the past 30 years reflecting regulatory monitoring requirements. It supports requirements originating from LAPPC (Local Air Pollution Prevention and Control), IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control), WID ...

  • The Use of Particulate Emission Monitors to Support Arrestment Plant Operation and Upkeep

    The operation of filtration type arrestment plant can be optimised by the effective use of Particulate Emission Monitors (eg Filter Leak Monitors and Filter Performance Monitors). Particulate Emission Monitors are installed throughout the broad spectrum of industrial processes to satisfy regulations (IPPC, Part B Guidance Notes, WID and LCPD) for emission limit enforcement. In addition, where ...

  • Characterization of particulate matter and gaseous emissions of a C-130H aircraft

    The gaseous and nonvolatile particulate matter (PM) emissions of two T56-A-15 turboprop engines of a C-130H aircraft stationed at the 123rd Airlift Wing in the Kentucky Air National Guard were characterized. The emissions campaign supports the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) project WP-1401 to determine emissions factors from military aircraft. The purpose of the ...

  • Argueso & Co. Achieves 99% Efficiency for Particulate Emissions Using Whirl Wet

    M. Argüeso & Co. produces casting wax blends for the investment casting industry, wax products to stabilize parts during machining, and specialty wax blends for sculpture, jewelry and other uses.  M. Argueso moved from Mamaroneck, New York to Muskegon, Michigan in 2005, subjecting the facility to Michigan’s stringent air regulations. The company’s first priority was a system that would collect ...

  • Case study - Organic particulate filtration

    Overview A food products company that mixes various types of waxes and other components to make the base for chewing gums was faced with the issue of cleaning up a slightly odorous, visible emission being exhausted from two of their process lines. The components of the emission were hot particles of chewing gum and some volatile organic compounds (VOC's). The particles would quickly clog ...

  • Predicting Diesel Particulate Filter Performance

    The diesel particulate filter (DPF) has been used for many years in the control of diesel particulate matter (DPM)emissions. This technology is characterised by extremely high efficiency and high sensitivity to the application conditions. Research and testing performed by Diesel Controls Ltd. over the past two years has resulted in improved methods for predicting the application based performance ...

  • Experimental Assessment of Particulate Measurement Instrumentation

     Introduction The European Commission has funded a project called 'Experimental assessment of particulate measurement instrumentation'. The project was undertaken by AEA Technology in the United Kingdom. The work comprised two phases: Phase 1: Literature review to help formulate the recommendations for measuring techniques to be investigated in Phase 2. ...

  • Size and composition distributions of particulate matter emissions: Part 1 — Light-Duty Gasoline Vehicles (LDGVs)

    Size-resolved particulate matter (PM) emitted from lightduty gasoline vehicles (LDGVs) was characterized usingfilter-based samplers, cascade impactors, and scanning mobility particle size measurements in the summer 2002. Thirty LDGVs, with different engine and emissions control technologies (model years 1965–2003; odometer readings 1264–207,104 mi), were tested on a chassis dynamometer using the ...

  • Evaluation of total particulate matter emission factors for copper slag in dry abrasive blasting

    Abrasive blasting was performed in enclosed conditions to evaluate the effect of blast pressure, feed rate and surface contamination on Total Particulate Matter (TPM) emission factors for copper slag. Stack sampling methods were used to collect uncontrolled TPM. Emission factors were calculated as grams of TPM emitted per pound of copper slag used (g/lb) and grams of TPM emitted per square foot ...

  • High efficient cyclone systems with electrostatic recirculation for particulate matter (PM) emission control

    The development of new optimized dedusting systems has particular and increasing relevance for atmospheric particulate emission control. Indeed, traditional "particulatetraps" present several disadvantages that foster the search for alternative solutions. Industrial cyclones are, for their robust construction, absence of moving parts and general application, an appropriate technology for emission ...

  • Particulate polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in urban air of Tehran

    Epidemiological studies have shown correlations between the concentration of particles in the air and increase of daily rates of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and mortality (Douglas et al.,1992; Jonathan et al.,1995; Auron et al.,1995). Elevated lung cancer rates among women in rural china have been attributed to emissions from their coal-fired stoves (Mumford et al.,1987;Alder and ...

  • Particulate matter: Comparison between two bus fuels

    AbstractParticulate matter is a dangerous polluting. Particulate health effects depend from two factors: mass concentration and chemical-physical particles composition, as chemical marker, size and morphology. Particulate health risk factor is due to particles penetration in respiratory system. The aim of this work is based on the physical characterization of particulate matter emission from two ...
