Accurate Combustion Gas Measurement In Coal-Fired Power Plant

The need for carbon monoxide equivalent (COe) monitoring in coal-fired power plants is increasing dramatically. A shift towards heat rate efficiency is occurring within the coal-fired boiler community. Increased competitiveness in electricity rates combined with indications of future limits expected by the EPA are driving the need to actively measure COe in order to improve combustion efficiency and minimize CO.
