Stack, Flue or Chimney Emission Testing
Stack Emission monitoring is often referred to the air monitoring of an emission point. Typically, such monitoring is carried out on boiler stacks, exhausts from printers, discharges from bag filters, thermal oxidisers and is performed on a regular basis.
Stacks from boilers and industrial processes will carry pollutants such as SOx, NOx, particles, solvents and other dusts and gases. These can have a detrimental effect on local air quality and for this reason such emissions are often regulated. Typically this regulation requires measurement of the concentration of these pollutants on a regular basis, often referred to as periodic stack emission monitoring. The regulator will usually set limits as to concentration (or mass flow) and purpose of the monitoring will be to determine whether the emissions are below those limits set.
This area is more for consultants who perform stack emission tests, end users and other organisations who perform Isokinetic particulate (dust) sampling together with CEM (continuous emission monitoring) testing and VOC (volatile organic compound)testing.
Environmental Monitoring can Supply:
The method for testing to meet UK, European and ISo standards, US EPA Reference methods( USEPA M5)
The equipment to comply with these standards.
Training courses, so you know what is required of you and the kit.
