Diesel power plants run with heavy oil have to meet emission limits, too - reliable supervision even under difficult flue gas conditions: with hot/extractive or in-situ technology by SICK.
For the decentralized generation of energy, more and more diesel power plants run by heavy oil are used. This is an economic alternative to conventional power generation, especially for the supply of islands, remote residential areas/industries or for seasonally varying demands. There are emission limits which have to be observed and continuously monitored. Due to the special flue gas conditions of diesel motors, the measuring systems have to cope with high soot and acid sulfur concentrations.
Maintenance needs have to be kept low, because this kind of power plant is nearly always in a remote location. And who has the time to travel long distances spontaneously? Service planned well in advance is advantageous. The monitoring of emissions has to be efficient and reliable. SICK has the solution.
Different technologies for reliable measuring quality
For the measurement of exhausts of diesel motors run with heavy oil, in-situ analyzers like the GM32 for the emission measurement of SO2 and NOx are especially suitable. This measuring method is nearly independent of dust loading and corrosive flue gas conditions and notedly low-maintenance. Should further components (e.g. O2, CO, NH3) have to be registered, additional analyzers are used like for example GM35 (for CO, CO2, H2O), GM700 (for NH3) or ZrO2-oxygen analyzers.
An economic alternative is in this case the hot-extractive measurement with the MCS100E HW which can register all of the mentioned components with one single system. The heating of gas contacted parts prevents corrosion and reactions between flue gas components. Apart from that, multiplex operation is possible, if allowed. Internal adjustment filters perform routine checks without the need for test gases.
Reliable emission measuring concepts
The analyzers and measuring devices by SICK measure all gas and dust components resulting from the emission measurement. And as demands define technology, fitting solutions by SICK are always ready and in action.
