Emissions Monitoring

Emissions Monitoring
The combustion process in power generation inevitably generates emissions of toxic gases and particulate matter. Accurate monitoring allows you to demonstrate that your process remains within the allowed emissions limits, minimizing the risks to human health and to the wider environment.

Measurements of opacity or particulate matter (PM) are required in power plants worldwide. Gaseous pollutants such as carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen also need to be monitored to demonstrate compliance with local environmental regulations.

AMETEK Land supplies a range of instruments designed for combustion monitoring and control, including advanced dust and opacity monitors which set the industry standard on compliance measurements. We have unrivalled experience in providing continuous emissions monitoring systems to meet exact customer requirements globally.

Portable Flue Gas Applications - Application NotePORTABLE FLUE GAS APPLICATIONS
Measuring flue gases produced when fuel or other materials are burned in industrial plants or power stations is important for process control, efficiency and emissions monitoring. As the most accurate, robust and flexible portable flue gas analyser available today, Lancom 4 provides an ideal solution for industries burning coal, natural gas, oil or biomass, including power generation, steel, glass and cement manufacturing.

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 >
