Is your facility required to have main stack monitoring for PM 2.5 and PM 10? Have you considered the benefits of using triboelectric emissions detection systems for your stack monitoring? Triboelectric systems provide distinct advantages over older stack monitoring methods.
Switching to the use of triboelectric monitoring as part of a facility’s CAM plans simplifies the reporting and compliance process. By automating the emissions data collection and recording process Auburn’s TRIBO units eliminate the need to conduct daily visual stack inspections (EPA Methods 9 or 22 for opacity) or the daily logging of differential pressure for each dust collector. Additionally, air quality regulators see the use of more accurate triboelectric monitoring as an indicator of a facility taking its emissions compliance seriously and generally accord plants the do so more leeway when problems due occur.
With a detection range dozens of times more sensitive than opacity meters, triboelectric stack monitoring can alert operators to problems long before they escalate to reportable events. This means less burdensome reporting of exceedances, less worry about fines and sanctions from regulatory agencies and less downtime and lost production due to emissions controls problems.
With ever-increasing emissions limits across all industries and applications some older technologies can no longer reach compliance with current or future emissions standards. However, using Auburn’s TRIBO line of dust detectors facilities can achieve compliance with standards issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) along with other State and Local air permitting authorities. The EPA even recognizes the Auburn line of monitors as acceptable for use as Bag Leak Detectors for compliance with their strict MACT application standards (Maximum Achievable Control Technology) as well as Title V (CAM) compliance monitoring rule for processing.
