Mercury emissions monitoring
01 November 2017
Gasmet Technologies (Finland) has published a new White Paper on the monitoring of mercury emissions to air from industrial processes.
The paper provides an overview of current initiatives to reduce mercury emissions and explains how continuous mercury emissions monitoring can help inform process control and the efficient operation of pollution abatement equipment, whilst also demonstrating compliance with mercury emission limits.
The advantages of Cold Vapour Atomic Fluorescence (CVAF) are discussed and the answers to common questions are provided, addressing issues such as detection limits, interferences, quenching and calibration.
The paper also describes the development of Gasmet’s Continuous Mercury Monitoring system (CMM) which employs CVAF to provide a monitor that is simple and low cost to operate, and delivers high levels of sensitivity without interferences. The CMM measures total mercury, and is able to do so in industrial emissions containing high levels of dust.
