New Continuous Emissions Monitoring System Enables Users To Meet EPA Standards
Plant managers and engineers at industrial utilities and cement kilns, can measure stack gases with precision and reliability, enabling users to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) MACT emissions monitoring standards. The Thermo Scientific Omni FTIR Multi Gas continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) employs Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) technology allowing a user to simultaneously analyze multiple stack gases, including hydrogen chloride (HCl).

In December 2009, a non-hazardous liquid waste treatment facility in Wisconsin was exceeding their permitted level of 0.165 ppm tin in their final wastewater effluent discharge to the Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW). Additionally, effluent levels for lead and copper also approached permit limits and were a concern to this customer. After failing to obtain a variance from the municipality to allow higher discharge limits and exploring different treatment technologies, the firm contacted Siemens to evaluate their treatment process and provide recommendations.
Almost every industrial setting poses some potential safety risk to personnel working in such environments whether it is something that can be seen, such as rotating machinery, or unseen, such as possible lethal concentrations of flammable/combustible gas.
