Measurement solution for Perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions from aluminium industry

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

The aluminium industry is the major source of perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions to the atmosphere, which are a major contributor to global warming. PFCs have greenhouse gas effects up to 10000 times that of CO2. Emissions have been reduced over the last 20 years, but further reductions are harder to achieve as all the mechanisms for PFC production are not known. In order to better understand the production of PFC on an industrial level, laboratory studies have been carried out using a small scale cell.

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a colorless gas that is used extensively in industrial applications. Fluoride monitoring is especially needed for aluminum plants that need to convert HF into fluorine for use in their processes. Any HF that escapes is a cost to the plant, so an HF analyzer is essential to keep track of and prevent the losses.

Gas Detection Solutions for Aluminium

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Primary aluminium smelting generates large amounts of hydrogen fluoride gas (HF). Worker safety and ambient air quality concerns require that HF be monitored at several locations in smelters. Traditionally, a variety of chemical sampling methods have been used for HF monitoring in and around smelters. However, these methods are labour intensive and require ongoing maintenance and consumables. During the past decade, laser based HF analyzers have been replacing the traditional methods. Laser analyzers are compact, robust and reliable and provide accurate HF data. Fast response times that enable easy correlation of high HF emissions with work practices.
