Thermo Fisher Scientific’s continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) for wet stack particulate matter emissions enables simplified compliance with EPA regulations for utility companies, cement manufacturers and organizations with industrial and commercial boilers, the company says.
The new Thermo Scientific Particulate Matter Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (PM CEMS) is designed to improve accuracy by offering true mass concentration that meets the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-traceable standards for customers seeking to comply with the Utility Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), Portland Cement Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT), and the Industrial/Commercial/Institutional Boiler MACT.
The company says the PM CEMS is designed with dual monitoring technology that includes both light scattering (Nephelometry) and tapered element oscillating microbalance (TEOM, a proprietary Thermo Fisher technology) to measure and record effluent particulate emissions coming off the stack. The proprietary TEOM technology measures the true mass concentration of particulate matter emissions that are designed to provide precise and accurate readings that simplify regulatory compliance and facilitate successful audits.
In addition, the PM CEMS offers fully automated QA/QC procedures and what the company says is the only dual monitoring solution for performance specification 11 compliance on the market.
Thermo Fisher Scientific also offers a portfolio of complementary products for MACT regulations, including the Thermo Scientific Mercury Freedom System, Thermo Scientific OMNI FTIR CEMS and Thermo Scientific ARKE S03 System.
