Oct. 1, 2003 -- Horiba Instruments Inc. has recently entered into a business alliance partnership with CMC Solutions, L.L.C. to offer Predictive Emissions Monitoring Systems (PEMS) under the trade name SmartPEMS™ as part of its line of analytical instruments and integrated systems for stack gas emission monitoring.
SmartPEMS are cost-effective software-based continuous monitoring systems that may be certified for compliance with 40 CFR Part 75 Subpart E, and 40 CFR Part 60 Appendix B.
The SmartPEMS application runs on a standard workstation in a client-server environment utilizing a SQL compatible database and OPC-compliant data acquisition server that can interface with almost any input device or existing process control system.
This allows the application to be implemented in a cost-effective manner by continuing to leverage installed legacy systems and provides for future customization to accommodate the specific requirements of the source for ongoing regulatory compliance reporting.
SmartPEMS require minimal operational oversight and maintenance. This translates into cost savings as PEMS can be used independently, in lieu of CEMS, for qualified emission sources, or as a backup to conventional CEMS under U.S. 40 CFR regulations as promulgated to date, and/or as an extremely cost-effective replacement for existing compliance data acquisition systems.
Horiba Instruments, Inc. has been providing extractive and dilution CEMS (NOx, S02, CO, 02, total HC, & NH3) for over 25 years. Horiba also manufactures gas analyzers for numerous process applications including the PG-250, a portable stack gas analyzer for NOx, S02, CO, C02, and O2.
