Oxygen and Opacity Stack Emission Monitoring Systems To Optimize Combustion Efficiency and Meet EPA Requirements
MetadataShow full item record
The combustion efficiency of industrial fuel burning equipment can be optimized through the use of oxygen and opacity stack emission monitoring systems. By providing the operator with the means to obtain accurate, continuous, dynamic feedback of the status of the products of combustion fuel - air - mixture ratios can be maintained at optimum levels resulting in improved combustion efficiency and reduced air pollution in compliance with EPA guidelines. The smoke going up your stack is to a large part unburned fuel. The ever - spiraling cost of fuel over the past few years coupled with the world-wide energy shortage has made it imperative to operate industrial fuel burning equipment at the highest level of operating efficiency possible. A wide variety of fuel burning emission sources can now economically use oxygen and opacity monitoring systems to optimize combustion efficiency and meet EPA requirements.
