Opacity monitoring for continuous emissions

by DynOptic Systems Ltd     based in Brackley, UNITED KINGDOM

The history of air pollution regulation dates back as far as the 13th century when in 1273, Edward I (Longshanks) of England prohibited the burning of sea coal in London. The smoke produced by its combustion was considered detrimental to human health. By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, regulations were being passed that sought to control air pollution predominantly for smoke and odour control. Traditionally, regulators were concerned with the visual impact of the discharge from a stack or chimney. Therefore, emission limits were expressed in terms of colour or opacity. Modern methods for opacity measurement still use the darkness of the stack gases to measure the amount of smoke or dust emitted within the exhaust gases.

Sediment and Nutrient Loads

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

SedEvent is an event-driven, automatic grab sampling system that provides a simple and practical method of accurately determining suspended sediment and nutrient loads. While suspended sediment concentration (SSC) cannot be directly measured accurately or reliably, turbidity has been shown to be an excellent surrogate for SSC. Turbidity is caused by suspended particulate matter such as clay, silt, algae, organic and inorganic chemicals and acids like fertilizers, and microscopic organisms like harmful bacteria. These contents give water its cloudy or turbid appearance, and turbidity in natural waters is recognized as an important indicator of natural health. Measuring suspended sediment concentrations used to be labor-intensive, costly, inaccurate and impractical. SedEvent not only makes it possible and practical, it makes it simple.

Radionuclide Monitoring for Nuclear Power Plants

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides. A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to obtain a sufficiently large volume through the filter in order to exceed the laboratory methods minimum detection limits. Ecotech`s MegaVol Sampler, samples at a flow rate of between 120-150 m3/hr providing a high flow rate in order to collect a sufficient sample mass for laboratory analysis. The MegaVol will maintain volumetric flow rate at a preset volume until the filter is either changed or overloaded. The MegaVol can be equipped with a 3G modem in order to remotely monitor flow rate and other diagnostic parameters such as temperature, pressure and wind speed and direction.

Aerosol and particle technology for environment industries

by Palas GmbH     based in Karlsruhe, GERMANY

Fine dust is generated by industrial exhaust gases but in particular due to traffic. Environmental pollution is therefore caused particularly by exhaust gases of diesel-engined vehicles (diesel soot) but on the other hand also by abrasion of street, tyres and brakes and its resuspensions.

by Palas GmbH     based in Karlsruhe, GERMANY

In order to ensure that an industrial process can be controlled or even improved and optimized continually an analysis of the current situation in real time is necessary. Process data like temperature, pressure but also particle concentration and size distribution of a material flow can supply valuable information and be used for the regulation or the improvement of a process.

Low level measurement of VOCs and Terpenes close to the sea and the Landes Forest

by Chromatotec Group     based in Val de Virvée, FRANCE

It has been established that organic aerosol (OA) makes up for a major fraction of fine particulate matter in all region of the atmosphere. This fraction accounts approximately for half of the total PM2.5 dry mass.1,2 Primary OA is directly emitted in the troposphere from anthropological and natural sources whereas secondary OA (SOA) is formed in-situ in the atmosphere from the oxidation of biogenic or anthropogenic gas-phase precursors and subsequent partitioning of the less volatile products into the particle phase. The current number is that, on a global scale, SOA would represent around 60% of the overall OA.3 However, recent global mass-balance estimations for the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOC) suggest that this number could under-predicts SOA production.4 Recent field measurements in urban locations are also in support of a larger share, indicating that SOA is the dominant fraction of OA, with amounts considerably 20 greater than models predictions.

Particulate monitoring for continuous emissions

by DynOptic Systems Ltd     based in Brackley, UNITED KINGDOM

With the advent of specific process emission limits being defined, continuous particulate monitoring has become a regulatory requirement for many industries. smoke stack #1Particulate monitoring requires the measurement of the mass concentration of particulate matter in stack emissions to atmosphere. There is no known method of continuously measuring particulate concentration by direct measurement and therefore, all continuous particulate measurement methods are inferential. Each method involves the measurement of a parameter related to particulate concentration and then requires a calibration to be determined to convert the measured value into one of particulate mass concentration.
