One-stop comprehensive solution

Solutions for every industry sector

The complexity of CEMS is diverse. From simpler systems for natural gas fired boilers to measure carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oxides of nitrogen to highly sophisticated systems for waste incineration plants measuring exotic pollutants such as hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen chloride and ammonia. The good news is that ABB has the products, expertise and backup services to ensure your CEMS success in each of these fields. And in every case, from the most basic systems to the most complex, we will customize the solution to deliver unrivalled value for your money.

Emission monitoring technology for a changing world

Throughout the world, industrial companies that generate emissions are required to ensure that pollutants are within specified limits. Each country has laws and regulations for emission monitoring and control. The ABB CEMS range meets legal requirements, measuring all types of emissions from stacks around the world.

The most stringent requirements are reserved for plants using waste incineration, such as cement plants. As these facilities are heavily monitored, the ABB ACF5000, based on FTIR technology, is the ideal solution, measuring 15 components simultaneously. When new components become mandatory or emission limits change, the ACF5000 can be adjusted by a mere software upgrade.

The ABB EasyLine range is ideal in applications where measurements are limited to carbon monoxide (monitoring only), oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide and oxygen for normalizing emission to reference concentration.

ABB also offers a combination of NDIR, UV, paramagnetic, and FID and Laser technologies using the Uras, Limas, Magnos, Fidas  and LS25 modules. With the exception of LS25, all  gas analyzer modules can be integrated into the  Advance Optima or EasyLine ranges. The most suitable configuration is determined depending on specific local requirements. In case a standard plug-and-play version is preferred, ABB’s AO2000 system is an integrated solution with a cabinet containing all parts for the correct sampling.

Every ABB analyzer used for CEMS has been independently tested and certified by TÜV or MCERTS in Europe. Additional local certification is also available, so that ABB CEMS can be deployed on every continent. If no certification is required, a comparison measurement test will show that ABB’s analyzers are fit for purpose, such as with the RATA testing in the United States.
