The EPA’s new MATS rules sets particulate matter (PM) limits for coal and oil-fired electricity generating units: 4650-PM is suitable for both PM-CEMS (PM-continuous emission monitoring) and PM-CPMS (PM – continuous parametric monitoring system) in dry stacks where condensed water is not present.
Ametek Land’s 4650-PM has a minimum range of 0-15 mg/m3, which allows it to fully meet the requirements of the MATS rule. The design of 4650-PM is based on QAL1 certified, highly accurate forward-scattering laser technology that has been proven to be highly effective at measuring PM in Europe since 2009, the company says.
According to Ametek Land, patented technology incorporated into 4650-PM is capable of exceeding all American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and EPA requirements. Its large-area collection optics and stable optical design allow it to achieve a detection limit < 0.1 mg/m3.
Additionally, 4650-PM, which is made in the UK, offers variable insertion depth and has no continuously moving parts. It is able to operate in a wide range of stack temperatures up to 480 °F as standard (higher temperature options available on request). Advances in connectivity means that is it compatible with TCP-IP Ethernet, RS485, 4-20 mA outputs and is supplied with multiple display modes and a large graphics screen with intuitive menus.
Ametek Land’s 4650-PM is manufactured to ISO 9000 quality standards and meets PS-11 requirements.
