Thermo Scientific upgrades mercury monitoring system

World Coal,

Thermo Scientific has made enhancements to its mercury monitoring system, designed to assist users with meeting new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.

Environmental managers and equipment engineers at industrial facilities 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 EPA’s Utility Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) and Cement and Industrial Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) 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 is an enhancement to the existing Mercury Freedom System, offering customers a complete mercury monitoring solution.

“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,” commented Jeff Socha, chief scientist, environmental and process monitoring, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

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
  • Uses Thermo Scientific common components for faster parts replacement
