A new product in M&C's portfolio is a Sorbent Trap device for mercury measurement. The DIN CEN/TS 17286 standard, which was adopted at European level in 2019, provides for the use of sorbent traps as a reference method for mercury measurement.
The Sorbent Trap system is a device for discontinuous measuring. It actively extracts flue gas from the process, which is then directed through the sorbent traps. As a result, an arithmetic mean value is obtained over a period from 0.5 to 336 hours. After the collection period has elapsed, the traps are removed from the probe and sealed. The analysis is performed in the laboratory. New unloaded sorbent traps are used for further measurements.
Further product advantages are:
- No wet chemical operating materials
- Limits of detection: 2 µg/Nm3 up to 0.01 µg/Nm3
