Continuous Emissions Monitoring System Offers Dual Analysis for MACT Compliance
A new continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) for wet stack particulate matter emissions enables simplified compliance with U.S. EPA regulations for utility companies, cement manufacturers and organizations with industrial and commercial boilers.
The new Thermo Scientific Particulate Matter Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (PM CEMS) was 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.
The Thermo Scientific PM CEMS was 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. 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.
