Stack Testing Applications

  • Stack Testing for the Aluminum Industry

    ALUMINUM INDUSTRY: Performed a range of test measurements required by the promulgation of the Secondary Aluminum MACT standards. Testing included measurements of Hazardous Air Pollutants for establishing Area vs. Major Source Determinations, as well as dioxin/furan compounds associated with chlorine emissions from fluxing operations.

  • Opacity monitoring for continuous emissions

    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.

    Fluoride emissions monitoring in aluminum smelters

    Production of aluminum from its ores at aluminum smelters results in carbon dioxide CO2, carbon monoxide CO, sulfur dioxide SO2, and hydrogen fluoride HF gas emissions during the electrolytic process phase to the atmosphere. The gas emissions need to be monitored. Typically the smelters have emission limit values (ELVs) for sulfur dioxide and hydrogen fluoride emissions. These emissions should be measured accurately and with good precision, to ensure the smelter does not exceed its emission limit values. In addition several fluoride compounds may be produced in the electrolytic bath in the event of an oxygen shortage. These compounds include carbon tetrafluoride CF4, hexafluoroethane C2F6, sulfur hexafluoride SF6, and silicon tetrafluoride SiF4. These additional emission components are problematic, as they have high Global Warming Potential (GWP) values. The GWP is a relative measure designed to demonstrate how much heat a greenhouse gas (GHG) traps in the atmosphere. Emission of one kilogram of carbon tetrafluoride into the atmosphere today has the potential of heating the atmosphere as much as 7,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide over the next 100 years.

  • Continuous Metals Stack Monitor (CEMs)

    Cooper Environmental's Xact® 640 has the unique ability to generate high time resolution metals measurement in stacks. This unique capability has the potential to qualify as a substitution for the combination of a Hg/ PM CEMs application as well as the potential for a pollution control system feedback loop that could result in the reduction of pollution control consumables. Our systems have been site certified for compliance measurements at hazardous waste incinerator and secondary lead smelter sites.

  • Portable Stack Monitoring

    Many industries are required to measure stack emissions of toxic gases periodically, but not continuously. Extractive wet chemical methods currently used are slow, labor intensive and expensive. A single GasFinderFC can perform stack monitoring requirements for a specific gas, quickly, easily and accurately.

    Determination of TOC in stack

    PROBLEM: The industrial chimney's emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are becoming issues of global importance and to have an accurate knowledge about how to test VOC turns into a strategic issue. VOC emissions are quantified and monitored according to standard EN 12619, using FID analyser which uses hydrogen and other reference gases in pressurized cylinder. Operators must then approach the sampling point, often placed several meters from the ground, climbing chimneys of industrial settlements with instruments and cylinders. Is it possible making this job easier and safer? SOLUTION: Using the Polaris FID analyser produced by Pollution Srl, Italy, it is possible to carry out the VOCs monitoring according to EN 12619 without lifting accessories and heavy weights typically involved with FID analyser. Polaris FID analyser complies with this standard regulation but what is really a breakthrough and cutting-edge, is the unmatched portability and the next generation technology
