Mercury Monitoring System Enhancements Designed to Meet EPA Standards
Product News Feb 08, 2014
Environmental managers and equipment engineers at industrial facilities-including utilities, industrial boilers and cement kilns-now have a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable quality control method designed to help them meet EPA standards.
The new Thermo Scientific Model 84i Mercury Permeation Source provides a NIST-traceable quality control method for customers who are seeking to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Utility Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) and Cement and Industrial Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACTs) requirements for mercury monitoring.
Mercury gas generating industrial facilities are required by the EPA to have a NIST-traceable quality control method for monitoring mercury emissions.
The new model 84i is an enhancement to the existing Thermo Scientific Mercury Freedom System, offering customers a complete mercury monitoring solution.
Thermo Fisher is showcasing the 84i mercury permeation source within booth #601 at the Energy, Utility and Environment Conference (EUEC) 2014, being held February 3-5 at the Phoenix Convention Center.
“The model 84i source was designed and manufactured by the same team who released the Mercury Freedom System, enabling us to offer a consistently high quality mercury monitoring system with the goal of helping our customers monitor and reduce mercury emissions,” said Jeff Socha, chief scientist, environmental and process monitoring, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
The 84i Permeation Source benefits and features include:
• Audits can be triggered on an automated or manual basis
• Quick integration into the Thermo Scientific Mercury Freedom System’s rack
• Utilizes Thermo Scientific common components for faster parts replacement
