Evaluation d'analyseurs multigaz portables à l'émission de dispositifs de combustion

Abstract : In 1995, the National Institute for Industrial Environment and Hazards (INERIS) was commissionned by the Working Group Air Pollution to assess five multigas portable analyzers, using electrochemical cells. Laboratory tests showed different levels of uncertainty due to repeatability errors and a lack of linearity. The apparatus were tested on site at a waste management incinerator and a coal fired plant. The results confirmed a lack of trueness due to cross interference sensitivity. These analyzers have insufficient performance characteristics to be used to accurate measurements of pollutants, but they are very useful measuring devices for adjusting combustion parameters in boiler rooms. At a low cost, boiler operators can easily measure gas temperatures, CO, SO2, O2 and NOx concentrations, underpressure in furnaces, Baccarach index and evaluate the losses in the stack
