Introduction to Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems
- Identify the purposes of a Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS)
- Distinguish what components are and are not part of the certified loop
- Identify the function of the gas fuel flow transmitters
- Identify the function of the megawatt transmitters
- Identify the function of the probe and sample system
In 1990, Congress passed the Clean Air Act and changed the way industries monitor and account for certain air pollutant emissions. The act requires industries to use Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) for these emissions. The pollutants monitored vary depending on the industry and processes taking place. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified various industrial facilities impacted by CEM requirements. This course focuses on power generation facilities, specifically fossil-fuel burning plants.
The Introduction to Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems training course describes the purpose, function, and major components of CEM systems, including:
- Certified loop components
- Additional components
- Fuel gas flow transmitters
- Megawatt transmitters
- Probe and sample system
This course is part of the Fundamental Aspects of Emission controls training series.
