Combustion operations during steel production processes produce emissions which are subject to strict environmental regulations. Monitoring and controlling these emissions is a regulatory requirement, and also provides process efficiency benefits.

Steel MakingControlling the emissions of particulate matter, such as dust and other pollutants can prove challenging. The high-temperature environment adversely affects both the measurements and the instrument itself. The 4500 MkIII opacity monitor and 4650-PM forward-scattering PM monitor have been designed to operate in the harshest industrial environments.

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. The FGA900 series is a compact, self-contained analyzer for measurements of CO, NO and O2 in gas-fired processes such as reheat furnaces.

AMETEK Land offers a comprehensive range of monitoring options for combustion in steel production. Our advanced solutions monitor flue gas concentrations so operators can prevent harmful emissions and ensure efficient combustion. The Lancom 4 is a compact portable multigas which can measure up to eight flue gases in a range of combustion and emissions processes. It is the ideal product for checking emissions within the steelmaking industry.

Designed to operate in the harsh environments, these instruments deliver critical measurements for process control, reducing costs, ensuring compliance with emissions rules and improving product quality.
