Gas Monitoring Systems for Pollution Control

Government and environmental groups are forcing industries with medium to high VOC exhausts to reduce emissions by as much as 98%. Incineration using pollution control devices such as oxidizers and flare stacks is one way to bring the exhaust emissions in line with the regulations. Capturing and reusing solvent in a solvent recovery system is another way. Control Instruments Corp.’s various...

Gas Monitoring Systems for Wastewater Applications

Regulations prohibit facilities from discharging flammable or explosive wastes from their processes into the wastewater collection system. These wastes are not only a fire and explosion hazard but they can also effect the efficient and effective operation of the treatment facility. PrevEx Flammability Analyzers are used to continuously monitor the waste stream for flammable gases and vapors....

Solvent Vapor Monitoring in Coil Coating Oven Atmospheres

Coil coating line managers report that they experience three basic problems in solvent vapor monitoring of their ovens: 1. Maintenance is burdensome. Sample lines clog, pumps break down, and analyzer elements become fouled - all resulting in excessive labor and costly downtime. 2. Sensor accuracy is a problem. Because most analyzers have a wide solvent response factor, they must be checked and...
