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 it… 
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

Introduction to the MET-80 Sorbent Trap Mercury Monitoring System

106

Published on

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.
