The CleanAir MET-80 is the leading solution for continuous mercury monitoring in the U.S. Developed in 2004 for the now-defuct Clean Air Mercury Rule, the MET-80 has continued to evolve over the years and is in its fourth generation. It is poised to tackle the Utility MATS and Portland Cement MACT mercury monitoring requirements.

Introduction to the CleanAir MET-80 Sorbent Trap Mercury Monitoring System Introduction to the CleanAir MET-80 Sorbent Trap Mercury Monitoring System Presentation Transcript

  • Why CleanAir’s MET-80 is the BEST SOLUTION for mercury monitoring under MATS.
  • So, MATS requires utilities to monitor mercury 24/7/365
  • Unless you have an extension, MATS compliance starts April 16, 2014
  • THAT’S LESS THAN 8 MONTHS AWAY
  • It feels like we’ve been here before…
  • Remember CAMR?
  • Utilities spent $millions on mercury CEMS hardware as they prepared for CAMR
  • A lot of it didn’t work…
  • or it cost a fortune to operate…
  • OR BOTH!
  • Lucky for them, most plants didn’t need this hardware… The rule was vacated by the courts in 2008
  • Recognizing the deficiency in Hg CEMS, a few plants went with sorbent trap systems instead
  • They had their reasons
  •  Cheaper than CEMS  Back-up for CEMS  More sensitivity than CEMS  More reliable than CEMS  Simpler than CEMS
  • CleanAir created the MET-80 in 2004 to address these customers’ needs
  • Before the MET-80, sorbent trap systems (aka Appendix K Samplers) were essentially re-purposed stack testing equipment
  • Before the MET-80, sorbent trap systems (aka Appendix K Samplers) were essentially re-purposed stack testing equipment They were viewed as back-ups to the primary CEMS
  • Before the MET-80, sorbent trap systems (aka Appendix K Samplers) were essentially re-purposed stack testing equipment They were touted as being “low cost”
  • Before the MET-80, sorbent trap systems (aka Appendix K Samplers) were essentially re-purposed stack testing equipment In reality, they were “cheap”
  • Before the MET-80, sorbent trap systems (aka Appendix K Samplers) were essentially re-purposed stack testing equipment They weren’t reliable
  • Before the MET-80, sorbent trap systems (aka Appendix K Samplers) were essentially re-purposed stack testing equipment And they were giving the technology a bad name.
  • We designed the MET-80 from the ground up to be the Primary Mercury Monitoring System
  • And we had a philosophy…
  • It would be reliable MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
  • It would be reliable MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY > 95% availability
  • It would be robust MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
  • It would be robust MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY Able to handle the worst stack and weather conditions out there, 24/7/365
  • It would be simple MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
  • It would be simple MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY A technician could operate and maintain it on their first day
  • It would be low cost… but not “cheap” MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
  • It would be low cost… but not “cheap” MET-80 DESIGN PHILOSOPHY Integrated, rack-mounted, top- notch components, and quality manufacturing
  • We succeeded
  • The first compliance-reporting sorbent trap mercury monitoring systems in the U.S. were at Dominion’s Salem Harbor Power Station. And they were…
  • The first compliance-reporting sorbent trap mercury monitoring systems in the U.S. were at Dominion’s Salem Harbor Power Station. And they were… Three MET-80s, Fully integrated, certified, and reporting for the Massachusetts Mercury Rule
  • The industry took note…
  • NESCAUM Technology Review, 2010
  • Section 2.8 Salem Harbor installation used as benchmark for data availability using Sorbent Trap Monitoring
  • Section 2.8
  • MET-80 Design Firsts
  • Quick- change traps and integrated sample lines Patented Quick-Change Probe
  • Integrated Cabinet Design Front Rear
  • NEMA 4X Platform Installations
  • Shelter-Based Installations
  • High-Precision Mass Flow Meters
  • In-Situ Meter Calibration Audits
  • MATS-Tailored Software
  • We installed 33 systems prior to the vacatur of CAMR in 2008
  • We installed another 10 systems post-CAMR for state permitting purposes
  • In total, prior to MATS, CleanAir installed over 40 MET-80s for the utilities
  • 35 of these systems are still in operation today
  • 7 years and counting for the oldest Footprint Power Salem Harbor
  • It all adds up to a lot of operating experience! 2008-2010 Mercury Results
  • And we’ve had a lot to SAY about sorbent trap monitoring over the years…
  • EUEC US EPA and TCEQ A&WMA 2007 AQVI McIlvaine Hot Topic
  • EUEC McIlvaine Hot Topic A&WMA 2008
  • EUEC Source Evaluation Society AQVII 2009
  • 2010 EUEC
  • AQVIII 2011 Power Plant Chemistry Magazine
  • AIChE National 2012 Reinhold APC/PCUG WPCA
  • EnviroTech Online 2013 Edinburg ICMGP
  • And we’ve collected and published a lot of data…
  • A LOT of Data
  • REAL Data
  • And we have a long history of operational and design improvements of the MET-80 The MATS design is our 4th Generation
  • The word is out…
  • So far this year, 40 MET-80s have been purchased for MATS
  • Why MET-80?
  • Three good reasons…
  • No other sorbent trap system has the installed base and operating hours than the MET-80 1) Experience
  • No other sorbent trap system has the installed base and operating hours than the MET-80 Literally millions of operating hours…no one comes close 1) Experience
  • No other sorbent trap system has the installed base and operating hours than the MET-80 Literally millions of operating hours…no one comes close NO ONE 1) Experience
  • No other sorbent trap system has the documented reliability that the MET-80 has. 2) Reliability
  • No other sorbent trap system has the documented reliability that the MET-80 has. 2) Reliability We guarantee data availability of at least 95%.
