Summary

Monitoring of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other gaseous emissions on a continuous basis places much more severe requirements on the monitoring-instrument system, compared with intermittent or spot-sampling methods. This paper describes requirements for gaseous sample handling and conditioning, instrument selection, system calibration, data management, and compliance with federal regulations. In addition to use for compliance with emission limits, continuous monitors are used for more efficient combustion control. Applications of these systems to glass furnaces are discussed. Basic methods of NOx control by combustion-system modification are reviewed.
