Stack Emissions

Biomass and coal combustion for power produces a number of pollutants which are subject to strict regulations. To ensure compliance with regulatory limits, power plants are required to monitor and control emissions. Emissions control also provides process efficiency benefits.

The emission 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 power plants demonstrate compliance with the applicable regulations. In some cases, this monitoring also supports the improvement of operational efficiency, lowering production costs. It can also reduce emissions damage to the plant, extending equipment life.

Opacity and Pm Monitoring in Emission Stacks - Application Note (EN)OPACITY AND PM MONITORING IN EMISSION STACKS
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 >
