Thermo Fisher Scientific has released its Particulate Matter Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (PM CEMS) for wet stack particulate matter emissions. The system enables simplified compliance with US EPA regulations for utility companies, cement manufacturers and organisations with industrial and commercial boilers.
The emissions monitoring system 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.
It 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. Designed for maximum accuracy, 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.
“As affected industries evaluate monitoring technologies to meet the various MACT regulations, reliable, accurate, and precise results that simplify QA/QC audits and minimise regulatory risk is key,” said Dieter Kita, Director of R&D, Environmental and Process Monitoring, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We’ve designed the PM CEMS to make compliance with the MACT rules simpler for plant and environmental managers.”
In addition, the PM CEMS offers:
- Fully automated QA/QC procedures.
- A dual monitoring solution for performance specification 11 compliance.
- A portfolio of products that provide a solution for MACT regulations, including the Thermo Scientific Mercury Freedom System, Thermo Scientific OMNI FTIR CEMS and Thermo Scientific ARKE S03 System.
