Monitoring Solutions is pleased to offer mercury (Hg) monitoring through a partnership with APEX Instruments - a company with 25+ years experience manufacturing and supplying sorbent trap mercury systems. Sorbent Trap systems offer the most reliable way to measure Hg eliminating the hassles associated with trying to maintain a Hg CEMS.
The automated XC-6000EM MercSampler™ for Sorbent Trap Monitoring Systems is designed for continuous dual sampling of vapor-phase mercury emissions from stationary combustion sources, in accordance with the U.S. EPA MATS published in 40 CFR, Part 60-63, Appendix A, Subpart UUUUU and Performance Specification 12B. (Specifications and Test Procedures for monitor- ing total vapor phase mercury emissions from stationary sources using a Sorbent Trap Monitoring System).
Sorbent Trap systems offers many advantages:
● Simple to Install and Operate
● Highly Accurate
● Very Low Detection Levels <0.5 ng/m3
● Sample Captured Directly in the Stack
● Long Term Sampling
● NIST Traceable SRM for QA/QC
● No Calibration Gas Requirements
● Traps are Non-Hazardous, Easy to Ship to Lab
Besides the huge time and cost savings in maintenance compared to a Hg CEMS, the initial cost of a sorbent trap system can be up to 75% less. With all these advantages why not contact us today to see if a sorbent trap system will meet your permit requirements for Hg monitoring?
