Nafion™ Prevents Previously Unrecognized Error in SO2 Gas Analysis

Perma Pure to Present at MEGA Symposium on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 3:30 pm ET

LAKEWOOD, N.J., Aug. 20, 2018 – Perma Pure LLC, a global leader of gas conditioning solutions for environmental monitoring, scientific, and medical applications, today announced that the Company will be presenting at the MEGA Symposium being held in Baltimore, MD.  Amy Geary, Engineering Lab Technician at Perma Pure, will discuss “Effects of Sample Conditioning on SORetention and Measured Emissions” on Wednesday, August 22nd at 3:30pm.

By attending this presentation, you will learn that accurate measurements become more difficult as SOemissions levels decrease.  Furthermore, you will discover that for cold extractive continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS), upgrading the sample conditioning system from a condensing cooler to a permeation dryer can yield significant improvements in SOretention in the sample stream, and more accurate measurements.  This system substitution is vital for SOanalyses due to the loss of soluble analytes in the condensed water in alternate conditioning systems.  Additionally, by decreasing the water content while maintaining the concentration of SOin the gaseous sample, simpler analysis methods can be used, which is advantageous for both regulatory bodies and industry professionals.  For example, improvements in accuracy of FTIR analysis of SOwere seen by using Nafion™ conditioning systems.

Lab and field data for SOretention will be presented for Nafion™-based systems showing excellent performance at low levels of SOand high moisture content.  Experience and data from different installations will be shared along with updated results from on-going research.
