All liquid, solid, and gas fuels are basically hydrocarbons, and the process of burning them results into production of various air pollutants. Especially uncontrolled combustion produces a high concentration of pollutants. These pollutants damage the environment and are harmful to the population as well as the vegetation. Pollution Control Board has certain norms, and industries have to adhere to such norms and regulate the hazardous emissions, released from their exhausts. It is very important that pollutants like CO, NO, NO2, SO2, HC, H2S, and to some extent, CO2, are monitored, so that they can be controlled later.

Emission Monitoring (compliance testing)


In most countries, operation of all types of industrial plants (e.g. large power stations, steelworks, cement works, glass works, and chemical plants), and local authority facilities, right through to small production sites are subject to strict regulations governing exhaust gas emissions into the atmosphere. Suitable measures are be taken to ensure and regularly verify that the components defined as pollutants do not exceed certain limit values in the flue gas. The emission analyzer from Testo can be used to carry out a preliminary analysis before an official emissions reading, or, depending on the country and directive, the actual official compliance testing.
