  • Continuous Emissions Monitoring of Total Mercury

    Over the past decades, mercury (Hg, quicksilver) has gone from being a versatile commodity used in everything from thermometers to herbicides, to a partially banned substance, which name alone signals environmental issues and health concerns. Today, much use of mercury has been phased out in favour of more environmental- and health-friendly substances, and the remaining circulation of mercury is ...

  • Technical Challenges of Continuous Mercury Emissions Monitoring

    Many pollutants such as CO2, NOx and SO2 have been monitored continuously already for decades. In the last years the awareness for the need to measure mercury has also grown, and continuous mercury monitoring is becoming more and more relevant. Especially industries burning coal, oil or waste, share the responsibility to monitor their mercury emissions. All measuring techniques need to be able to ...

  • Process & Emissions Optimization - Case study

    There are many locations that should be measured and monitored with a portable emissions analyzer to maximize product quality, combustion efficiency, safety, and emissions reduction in a cement plant including the following: Rotary Kiln gas outlet O2, CO, NOx, CO2, SO2, CxHy, temperature ...

  • Portable Emissions Analyzers for Mining Applications - Case study

    When extracting and refining valuable geological materials from the earth (eg. limestone, aluminum oxide, gold), a variety of industrial combustion processes are required. The machinery used in these processes such as industrial engines, boilers, and smelters can emit highly toxic gases that are harmful to the environment and to human life. Using a portable emissions analyzer enables mining ...

  • NEO Monitors conquers the Quasi-impossible

    China is a world factory powered by its abundant coal resource. China is facing a huge environmental challenge brought together with the fossil-fired power plants. China has therefore been conducting technical retrofit to the engines of its economy, by introducing emission control facilities. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is one of the most widely applied emission control ...

  • NH3 Slip Monitoring in Fluidized-bed Catalytic Cracking Using the LDS 6 Gas Analyzer – Case Study

    Fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) units are used in refineries to convert low value heavy oils into more valuable lighter compounds. Cracking units are sources of emissions of pollutants (e.g. NOx) and must comply with concentration permits set by local or federal authorithies. Modern technologies are applied to reduce the content of pollutants and to monitor certain gas compounds (here: NH3) in ...

  • 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 ...

  • Coming along nicely our client travels from Jersey to inspect the progress of their new medical waste incinerator

    We’ve often talked about how most of the waste incineration plant we manufacture is either personally customised or are bespoke projects that have been individually designed and built to meet specific requirements.  When we are engineering ‘one-off’ units such as these it is quite normal for our clients to pay us a ...

  • Ca removal and Mg recovery from flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater by selective precipitation

    Selective removal of Ca and recovery of Mg by precipitation from flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater has been investigated. Thermodynamic analysis of four possible additives, Na2CO3, Na2C2O4, NaF and Na2SO4, indicated that both carbonate and oxalate could potentially provide effective separation of Ca via precipitation from Mg ...

  • Does your facility need Zero Liquid Discharge Technology?

    If your industrial facility discharges its waste into deep wells, streams, sewers to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), and/or other waterways, it is likely there are some types of regulations on discharging the waste. With an increasing push toward environmental protection, many industrial facilities and effluent regulators are strengthening strategies to reduce industrial process waste. ...

  • How much will a zero liquid discharge system cost your facility?

    With increasing stewardship of environmental protection, both nationally and internationally, many industrial facilities and effluent regulators are strengthening strategies to reduce industrial process waste by implementing zero liquid discharge (ZLD), a process that limits liquid waste at the end of your industrial process to—as the term suggests—zero. A ...
