  • Practical Implementation of EN-14181in Particulate Monitoring - Case Study

    Introduction This case study summarises the results of implementing particulate monitoring according to EN-14181 in a municipal incinerator operated by SUA in Teesside, UK, with a ProScatter M type particulate instrument (Model PCME QAL 181). It also provides a comparison of results for monitoring the same stack with an ElectroDynamic particulate instrument (Model PCME QAL 991). This case ...

  • 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 ...

  • Planetary Boundary Layer: Why is it Important?

    The famous statistician George Box said “All models are wrong, but some are useful”—for calculating air quality indices and emissions estimates this is certainly true. One way to increase the utility of models is to use up-to-the-minute, local Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) measurements as an input when generating top-down emissions estimates. ...

  • Global solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • What is the Difference between a PM2.5 Monitor and a PM10 Monitor?

    Ambient air particulate monitoring is of more interest than ever before. The reason is new public awareness of the health effects of small particles suspended in the air, in combination with increased vehicle fleets emitting such particles. “PM” stands for particulate matter. The number (usually 10 or 2.5) indicates the size of the particulates monitored. ...

  • Asbestos monitoring – what monitor should I be using?

    Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as masses of strong, flexible fibres that can be separated into thin threads and woven. These fibres are not affected by heat and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos is chemically, relatively stable. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries.  These four types are classified as follows:  ...

  • Understanding ambient air quality instrument operating ranges

    In order to maximize the performance of an air quality monitoring station, careful selection of instrumentations is essential. One of the key issues is to have a good understanding of what pollutants need to be measured and at what concentrations. There are several different types of air quality monitoring, these include: Trace/Background Monitoring This is performed in areas where ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...

  • Thermal Desorption-GC/MS Analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on fine particulates in air

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are commonly found throughout the environment in soil, water and adsorbed to fine particulate matter in air. Of the 16 common PAHs, 7 have been classified as animal carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Resulting from this classification, PAHs are monitored and regulated in the environment. Analysis of PAHs in soil and water ...
