What is involved in CEMS integration?
Full CEMS Integration Specification
A continuous emission monitoring system is used as a compliance tool that works with state and federal emission regulations. With agencies such as the EPA as well as other international and federal agencies, strict monitoring, recording and measuring of sulfur and other gasses need to be monitored.
What is CEMS Integration?
With the right specification, connection and arrangement of all of the components of a fully functional monitoring system, this is called a CEMS integration. The involved components include:
- The point of extraction
- Sample transporting
- Final analysis point
Among these, the specific materials, instruments and tubing components are all involved, too. Each component in a CEMS integration is specified with an assurance that by the end, there will be a reliable and fully coherent system in the end. A full CEMS integration specification also includes accommodations for all of the utilities required. These include nitrogen, power and instrument air – and more, such as:
- PLC for required control and monitoring
- Communication with DCS for displaying the necessary essential data
- DAS for collecting, storing, and processing the CEMS data including the required calculation for reporting the emissions data
A full CEMS integration specification also requires DAS and DCS programming as well as a backup of a chart recorder. The analyzers have to be effectively placed with the right CEMS shelter services which must be climate controlled. This helps to minimize the ambient temperature effect on the analyzer performance. With the right CEMS analyzer shelter, the integrator usually offers the full integrating service for a fully integrated CEMS shelter. You are then guaranteed a shelter ready to install on site. They can also offer the right engineering service that accommodates all communication links and programming as needed.

With the correct design of online analysis systems for environmental compliance, mandated data can be acquired as can the minimizing of long term operational costs. In fact, a proper system design is critical for this to work. Reliable and cost effective CEMS are available to measure a range of components. Depending on your site requirements, our CEMS can measure components like:
