Measurement of flue gas emissions

Environmental regulations stipulate that certain pollutants in the flue gas emitted by cement plants, as well as the reference values, must be continuously monitored. In many countries, emission measuring technology must be tested for suitability, e.g., in Europe in accordance with EN15267-3, or in the US in compliance with EPA standards. SICK’s wide product portfolio for emission monitoring provides complete solutions all from one source. These include dust measuring devices from the DUSTHUNTER product family, in-situ gas analyzers such as the GM700, and extractive gas analyzer systems such as the MCS200HW and MCS100FT. Gas analyzers for special components, such as the MERCEM300Z for mercury (Hg), complete the solution portfolio. The FLOWSIC100CEMS product family provides volume flow measurement. The use of extractive or in-situ technology provides an ideal way to meet local measurement requirements.
