Stack Emissions

The combustion operations often used in chemical processing plants produce emissions which are subject to strict environmental regulations. To ensure compliance with government regulations around the world, plants are required to monitor and control emissions. This also provides process efficiency benefits.

Controlling emissions of particulate matter (dust and other pollutants) is a key application, but can prove challenging, as the high-particulate environment can adversely affect both the measurements and the instrument.

Continuous emissions monitoring helps ensure that plants meet the necessary control regulations, avoiding the prospect of sizeable fines. In some cases, this monitoring supports the improvement of operational efficiency, lowering production costs. It can also reduce emissions damage to the plant, extending equipment life.

Smoke and dust emissions from industrial plants, such as coal-fired power stations and industrial incinerators, damage the environment and pose a health hazard to humans. Subsequently these emissions are regulated by government agencies across the world. These include the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) in the USA and the UK. Globally, government agencies recognise the need for clean air and respond to the demands from the population for a healthier environment. Read More > Watch the Video >
