Nationwide Boiler Inc. introduces the DataStak, an emissions and efficiency monitoring system with O2, NOx, CO and CO2 measurements; real time boiler efficiency, fuel usage and carbon footprint calculation. It offers an alternative for large, intricate CEMS systems offering similar functionality and capabilities, according to the company.
The system uses two separate panels: an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC with touch screen operation and an electrochemical analyzer system. It works independently from existing boiler controls and is a stand-alone product that reportedly can be retrofitted to any boiler system.
The DataStak is engineered to fulfill monitoring requirements in certain air districts in California including the San Joaquin Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Specifically, the system will meet most of the SSP-1105 Emissions Monitoring for Rules 4305, 4306 for the SJVAPCD and ASTM D6522-00 standard for the SCAQMD, according to the company. The operator interface panel is built to NEMA 4 and UL508 standards, and the emissions monitoring equipment is built to ISO standards.
