Emission Compliance

Many processes generate harmful gases and particulate matters, which are subject to environmental regulation. Compliance with these regulations must be demonstrated to avoid fines and other sanctions.

Reliable, accurate emission monitoring is required to ensure processes comply with environmental regulations. This requires operators to properly install suitable measurement equipment that meets all regulatory criteria.

Continuous analysis of flue gases, particularly those derived from combustion, is required for many industrial processes to prove compliance. Other applications include measuring the heat values of these gases, and measurements to control sulfur dioxide (SO2) pollution.

AMETEK Process Instruments provides proven solutions for emissions monitoring that meet international standards for compliance. Our range of technologies deliver both hot-wet and cold-dry analysis, and can be configured for an extensive variety of pollutants.

  • Application +


    Continuous emission monitoring (CEM)

    CEM systems constantly analyze gases to measure the released pollutants, demonstrating compliance. Equipment must provide stable, accurate results that are not subject to cross-interference from other pollutants.

    Flare BTU monitoring

    Monitoring and control of flare stack performance is regulated to ensure sufficient combustible material is present to achieve high combustion efficiencies. This frequently makes it necessary for operators to quickly and accurately determine gas heat values.

    H2S in flare and refinery fuel gas

    Environmental regulations require the measurement of post-combustion hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in flare and refinery fuel gas, as a measure of the sulfur dioxide released to the atmosphere through combustion.
