How To Measure Air Pollutants with Continuous Emission Monitoring System?

As we all know that there is a huge impact of air pollution on the environment and it is increasing day by day. Some agencies are committed to reducing air pollution but firstly we have to check the number of pollutants in the air through the Continuous Emission Monitoring System.

What is a CEMS?

It consists of sampling, conditioning, and analytical components that are designed to provide direct, real-time, continuous measurements of pollution by analysing samples of air and water. CEMS is specially designed to measure and record the emissions from equipment that can be reduced according to the environmental condition to reduce pollution.

There are few types of CEMS, the most common is a non-dilution extractive-type system, in which a non-diluted part of the exhaust gas is extracted from the stack through a sample pump. After that, it will be sent to a conditioning system before being analyzed by an emissions analyzer.

What Is the Need of a CEMS?

Continuous Emission Monitoring System installation is done specifically according to air-quality regulations standards. This System comprises the total equipment required to determine the concentration of gaseous emission or emission rate using analytical measurements. After analytical measurements, a computer program provides results in units of the applicable emission limits. There are a few cases where CEMS is installed in order to collect information about their manufacturing processes, such as part of a control system to monitor a process that is really just a sort of self-regulation.

Is CEMS Need a Permit?

The meaning of the certification process is to ensure that the system collects the most accurate data possible, thus it ensures that your process is in compliance. Although it still needs a better deal of information, which could be anything from drawings of the exhaust stack, model of the equipment, measurement ranges, and many more.

At a particular point, you can install the CEMS with the help of MRU Instruments and start a block of tests to ensure that the system is perfectly accurate and operating properly.
