ME2C is unique in that it establishes, operates and maintains a service and warehouse facility near the customers’ facility to provide year-round, 24-hour support and service. ME2C experts continuously manage and monitor plant systems to ensure efficiency and performance. This hands-on approach significantly improves your operators’ ability to focus on producing power and helps ME2C to guarantee results from the mercury capture system.
- Emissions testing for mercury and other trace metals, ensuring compliance with regulatory limits.
- Optimal design of the injection scheme and appropriate equipment layout and installation.
- Optimization of SEA™ sorbent technologies for a customized low-cost plan for each unit.
- Access to industry-leading mercury experts and researchers at the EERC.
- Ongoing scientific support for combustion issues and questions related to trace metals, as operations and regulations change.
In order to achieve the optimal capture rates, ME2C conducts all of its analysis in the field monitoring and adjusting as necessary vs. collecting samples for laboratory analysis.
ME2C field analysis uses a mobile laboratory trailer is equipped with a Leeman cold-vapor atomic adsorption spectrophotometer and a DMA-80 analyzer (Milestone, Inc.). The DMA-80 allows for coal and ash mercury analysis in the field. This technique was recently validated as EPA Method 7473, entitled “Mercury in Solids and Solutions by Thermal Decomposition, Amalgamation, and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry.”
In addition to the equipment necessary to do mercury wet-chemistry sampling procedures, several different types of continuous mercury monitors (CMMs) are used:
- PS Analytical
