Emission reduction

Equipped to provide a full range of on-site industrial measurement services, CelSian’s Mobile Laboratory travels throughout Europe, monitoring the environmental performance of the region’s glassmaking factories. Stack measurements check O2, CO2, NOx and SO2, as well as dust, fluorine and chlorine emissions. We also have a dedicated system to measure selenium. Conditions can also be measured in and around glass melting furnaces, eg in the combustion chamber, as well as at the top and bottom of regenerators. Sophisticated thermal imaging cameras and measurement techniques are used to realize the most comprehensive results possible.
Our compact laboratory includes all necessary analysers, probes and equipment necessary to prepare samples and perform analyses. This equipment is also transportable for use at glassworks in other parts of the world.

It is hard to imagine a world without glass ''

With our focus on optimization of glass melting processes worldwide, we add value by the unique combination of industrial measurements, laboratory experiments and process simulation. We are ISO 17025 certified and accredited via RvA (L600). Offered as a one off or part of a long time agreement we have with our customer, our team reports on

  • Measured results (steady state and transient)
  • Measured mass flows
  • Comparison versus local permits (BREF, BAT, EU)
  • Combination with process optimization (burner settings / air gas ratio)
  • Combination with furnace lifetime enhancement

CO+ sensor

Experts in combustion technology agree that the spatial CO concentration close to the burner flames is the only suitable parameter to both: quantify the completeness of the combustion process and use as control parameter for manual or automatic burner control.

CelSian’s CO+ sensor is the way to enable continuous monitoring of representative values for both the spatial CO and oxygen concentrations which are prerequisite for adequate burner control.
