Continuous Emissions Monitoring Helps Plants Meet EPA Standards
Thermo Fisher Scientific says its continuous emissions monitoring system allows plant managers and engineers at industrial source facilities — including utilities, industrial boilers and cement kilns — to measure stack gases with precision and reliability, enabling users to meet the EPA’s maximum achievable control technology emissions monitoring standards.
The Thermo Scientific Omni FTIR Multi Gas continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) employs Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) technology, which enables a user to simultaneously analyze multiple stack gases, including hydrogen chloride, the company says.
The system is capable of delivering research-grade measurements of up to 10 gases, says Dr. Dieter Kita, director of research and development, environmental and process monitoring, Thermo Fisher Scientific. Kita says the system’s design also makes it possible for facilities to accurately measure emissions in harsh industrial environments.
The Omni FTIR CEMS uses an advanced software platform to achieve precise and stable analysis of complex gas spectra found in demanding industrial applications, the company says.
