Emissions Monitoring Equipment

Fired equipment, including boilers, furnaces and fired heaters, emit a variety of gases into the atmosphere that result from the combustion of carbon based fuels. These flue gas byproducts, including Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), and Carbon Monoxide (CO) can be harmful to the environment. The environmental authorities mandate that harmful emissions should be curbed approved levels and monitored to guarantee compliance. A variety of technologies can be used to monitor harmful emissions in the flue gas including Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS) and standalone analyzers for NOx, CO and particulates.

Emissions Monitoring
In order to control and regulate the flue gas emissions that come from a package boiler it is necessary to measure those emissions on a regular basis. Halgo Power will often include a Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) that monitors and records all applicable emissions values. Such a system allows the plant to view important emissions data in real time and adapt system variables accordingly to guarantee compliance. Flue gas test ports are also commonly included in the stack to allow access for manual emissions monitoring. Common gases monitored are NOx and CO.
