Public and private industrial operations from mining to landfills are under increasing pressure to control, monitor, and mitigate stack air pollution. The EPA’s Clean Air Regulations set in-stack emissions limits for pollutant concentrations at the point of release, and facility operating licences require emissions monitoring on a continuous basis.
Non-compliance with licence requirements or failure to control heavy emissions can result in increased scrutiny by regulators, steep fines, or even plant shutdown. For this reason, it is critical to have a monitoring system you can rely on.
Norditech has over 10 years of experience designing and maintaining continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) for facilities across Australia. Our clients include glass factories, power stations, incinerators, and tunnel ventilation stacks, and most of them operate 24/7 and require a support system and fast-response technical team they can depend on.
We know that a robust, reliable solution is vital to your facility operations and your peace of mind.
At the start of every project, our primary objective is to understand our client’s needs. We then recommend feasible, smart solutions that balance your compliance goals and project budget. Depending on your project scope, those solutions may range from maintenance, site assessment, project management, design and installation to data acquisition, validation, and reporting.
For process control and stack emission monitoring, industrial facilities need sophisticated monitoring equipment that can operate 24 hours a day in harsh environmental conditions. Reliability and low maintenance are our primary objectives when selecting gas and particulate continuous analysers for your facility.
Our field engineers have a high level of expertise with continuous emission monitoring systems, and we offer a complete range of purposely designed CEMS products. This enables us to customise application-specific systems that maximise operating efficiency and reduce your maintenance costs.
Norditech’s custom-designed systems are fully integrated and tested in our factory and then installed on site by qualified engineers. This ensures the proper workmanship and system integration to perfectly match your project requirements.
Monitoring Equipment and Methods
Our hands-on field experience with stack gas monitoring methods and technologies includes all required CEMS components:
- Stack gas sampling systems: direct extractive, hot/wet extractive, dilution extractive, and in-situ
- Sample conditioning systems
- Data acquisition and management systems
Our field engineers are trained to maintain environmental monitoring systems to the highest standards. We ensure compliance with all applicable standards and regulatory requirements: NATA, Australian Standards, and USEPA.
We are experienced in monitoring a broad range of CEMS parameters for our clients. Depending on the nature of your project, they may include:
- Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Sulfur dioxide (SO2)
- Total or hexavalent chromium (THC)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Hydrogen fluoride (HF)
- Particulates: ‘Fine’ and ‘coarse’
- Volumetric flow rate
