Stack emission monitoring

Stack emissions must be treated before released into atmosphere to “clean” of pollutants. With Pegasor technology fine particle emissions can be monitored in real time.

Current regulations and certified protocols (PM10 and PM 2.5)  for mass measurements are assumed to include fine particles.

For the future emission monitoring, also fine and ultrafine particles need to be monitored properly since their impact on health effects is much more significant: even with most modern and properly working filtering technologies in use, ultrafine particles are emitted to athmosphere.

Prior to Pegasor sensor technology, monitoring of these emissions has been difficult as cross stack optical backscatter devices are far too insensitive for ultrafine particles. Furthermore, as a modern electrical monitoring technology, Pegasor provides valuable information to the process control.
