BS EN 14181 is a quality assurance standard relevant to plants operating under the Large Combustion Plant (LCPD) and Waste Incineration (WID) Directives. Quality Assurance Level 2 (QAL2) of this standard involves the parallel testing of the plant automated measurement systems (AMS) against a certified test house, making measurements with a comparative standard.
Both WID and LCPD plants require the emissions testing of inorganic combustion products such as CO, NOx and SO2. A further requirement of WID plants is often the requirement to measure gaseous HCl. By far the best instrumental technique to use to measure HCl together with the full WID gas suite is FTIR.
Our model ProtIR 204M analyser has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of UKAS accredited test houses in providing parallel measurement data to calibrate plant AMS. It is a fully transportable CEM system and the software allows testing to be done to ASTM and EA TGN M22 standards quickly and easily.
The ProtIR 204M and PAS software have been designed to allow stack emission monitoring to be carried out to the Environment Agency’s Technical Guidance Note M22 Measuring stack gas emissions using FTIR instruments (TGN M22) as simply and quickly as possible. With the built-in Standard Analysis Model for common gases there is no complex set-up of analysis required. The software as built-in calculations for drift and residual analysis, following the methods described in TGN M22.
