Monitoring mercury separation in flue gas scrubbers

The purpose of the mercury process measurement is to monitor high Hg concentrations (Hg and HgCl2) when incinerating waste of unknown composition. If the gas purification system is overloaded with very high Hg concentrations (> 3000 µg/m³), counter measures must be promptly taken in order to ensure that emissions thresholds are respected. Due to the new measuring method with Zeeman measuring technology, this can be done using the MERCEM300Z in a safe and low-maintenance manner, without cross sensitivity, even at higher SO2 concentrations in the raw gas.
