Launch of New Mercury SM-5 CEMS Analyser

by | Mar 4, 2022 | Emissions Monitoring, Latest News

The new SM-5 is the next generation of mercury CEMS analysers.

The SM-5 mercury CEMS analyser meets the Waste Incineration BREF requirements, making it ideal for plants that must have a mercury CEMS analyser installed.

The SM-5 was designed for hazardous waste incineration plants that must continuously monitor mercury as per their responsibilities to the Industrial Emissions Directive.

It performs extremely accurate measurement of mercury at very low concentrations in flue gas. In fact, the SM-5 offers the lowest QAL1 certified range on the market – 0-5 µg/m3

The SM-5 Mercury CEMS is already installed on numerous municipal and clinical waste incineration plants across Europe.

Key Benefits

> QAL1 certified to EN15267 at the lowest range on the market – 0-5 µg/m3

> Dynamic range switching for reliable and stable measurement of mercury emission peaks at additional certified ranges: 0-30; 0-45; 0-100; 0-1000 µg/m3

> Low operation and maintenance costs results in a low total cost of ownership


Does Our Site Need Mercury CEMS?

As per BAT 4 in the 2019 Waste Incineration (WI BREF) BAT Conclusions, operators of municipal and clinical waste incineration sites must perform a protocol which concludes whether Mercury CEMS will be required.

The protocol of at least six consecutive accelerated or periodic tests has been agreed by the UK Regulators as an appropriate method for operators to demonstrate their mercury results.

Operators of hazardous waste incineration plants must be able to prove mercury measurements are consistently below the threshold of 10 µg/Nm, otherwise a Mercury CEMS must be installed.
