Benefits of Effective Emission Monitoring Systems

Business establishments and production or manufacturing facilities emit certain volume of gases that might be harmful to our environment. As such, continuous emission monitoring becomes necessary to determine if the particulate matter or gases that are, inevitably, being released as part of the production/manufacturing process are within the prescribed regulations or acceptable standards.

These days, a number of manufacturers and business owners are already utilizing different methods of monitoring their production emission as their first step to control the quantity of gases that might prove to be detrimental to the environment. For this purpose, a predictive emission monitoring system may be utilized to get accurate analysis and assessments. Aside from determining the emission rate, it also performs analysis of gases and other particles that can be found in the monitored emission. The resulting samples of pollutants are measured using various methods. The analyzers generally operate on a software program that can generate graphs and comparative analysis of the recorded pollutants in perspective of the acceptable standards.

Benefits of monitoring gas emissions:

Cleaner Environment

In the recent years, more and more people are gaining awareness as to the importance of protecting the Earth. They become more conscious of certain practices that are likely to have harmful effects on the environment. This is precisely the reason why it’s important to monitor the emissions of production and manufacturing plants; because by doing so, the environment ultimately benefits. Reliable and continuous emission monitoring system gives us a healthier and cleaner environment. It prevents companies from releasing unregulated amount of toxic gases in the air such as carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide.

Prevention of Health Problems

Harmful toxins in our surroundings will eventually take their toll on humans and other living creatures nearby. They are most likely to create health and medical problems that can be harmful. Excessive inhalation of toxic elements like sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide can result to asthma, skin allergies, headaches, lung problems, and other medical concerns. A monitoring system, especially on production plants, will be able to control the gaseous releases to the air. This will protect people especially those who work as employees and those who reside within the vicinity of the production area.

Reliable Prediction of Gas Emissions

Predictive emission monitoring system or PEMS is a requirement that certain governments may impose on manufacturing companies. By having this system in place, an accurate prediction of gas emissions can be made and appropriate measures can be immediately taken to prevent excessive emission of harmful gases to the environment. PEMS can also predict the moisture content as well as the gas thickness.

Different Measuring Systems:

Various measuring systems are utilized nowadays, and many of them have the basic essentials like sample probe, sample lens, filter, and analyzer. Other systems are:

a.    Gas Calibration System, and

b.    Gas Conditioning System

Continuous Emission Monitoring System and Predictive Emission Monitoring System are utilized for important health and safety reasons. When deciding which system to buy, choose one that will suit your requirements and budget. And lastly, make sure that it is certified to ensure good quality and maximum benefits from your investment.
 


My company always has emission monitoring systems. I once read in the paper that some employees got really sick because their monitoring equipment was damaged. That's scary...
