P S Analytical Presents Recent Developments in Atomic Fluorescence Spectrometry

Mar 14 2008 Read 2923 Times

At Pittcon 2008, PSA presented posters detailing their latest developments in Continuous Emissions Monitoring and Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy for determination and speciation.
This year’s posters included latest work on the determination of total gaseous mercury in ambient air. Coalburning power plants are the largest anthropogenic source of mercury emissions to the air. Burning hazardous wastes, the chlor-alkali industry, crematoria, breaking mercury products, and spilling mercury, as well as the improper treatment and disposal of products or wastes containing mercury, can also release it into the environment.
The recent ATEX certification has cemented the position of the PSA CEM instrumentation on many a wishlist.
The Clean Air Mercury Rule provides a regulatory regime for the control of mercury emissions from coal-fired utilities in the United States. The rule requires the installation of continuous emission monitoring systems at the majority of such utilities and provides a detailed regime of tests to validate data from the emissions monitoring system.
Their poster on our “in the field” experience of amercury continuous emission monitoring system gives an insight into PSA capabilities for the provision of specific instrumentation for this area of interest.
