Installation of a BetaGuard Particulate Monitor at a Wood-Fired Steam Generating Boiler
Mechanical Systems, Inc., engineered and installed a continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) for a wood-fired, steam-generating boiler. For this project, using a continuous opacity monitoring system (COMS) was not possible because of wet stack gas, so the BetaGuard Particulate Monitor provided a better solution for this application.
We installed a system with a pitot tube air flow monitor and dilution CO2 CEM, a BetaGuard Particulate Monitor for reliable, real-time particulate measurement, and a VIM Technologies data acquisition system that supplies emissions analysis and supports regulatory reporting requirements. The entire CEMS was certified according to the EPA Performance Specifications to validate installation and guarantee full regulatory compliance. In addition, we supplied the customer with a quality assurance program to ensure that daily operation stays within guidelines. To facilitate maintenance and avoid an 85 foot climb up the stack, we were able to locate the BetaGuard at ground level in the boiler house.
