Small Waste Incineration Plants (SWIP)

Our flexible, cost effective ‘CEM Solution’

We have carefully considered the Continuous Emissions Monitoring (CEM) requirements of SWIP* creating a Continuous Emissions Monitoring system specifically for such a regulated plant. We understand that a SWIP by its very nature is a small process, of which a CEM system can potentially be a significant outlay – possibly even a barrier to progression of a scheme. Our system is designed to be:
  • High quality
  • Cost effective
  • Flexible
  • Modular
  • Easy to install
  • Reliable, with low cost of ownership
Our solution is based on the CEMGA panel. This high-quality panel forms the basis of our modular system and provides:
  • Power distribution
  • Gas conditioning
  • Signal transmission
  • HVAC
It also integrates our proprietary CEMWare data logger. All the components in the system are high quality and field proven, giving confidence in the long-term operation and service life of the system.

Can we ensure our system meets the needs of your individual SWIP?

Not all SWIP’s are equal and derogation may be provided for certain measurements such as HCL, HF and SO2. Permits will also be subject to regular review and so additional measurements could be added or removed at some point in the future. The CEMGA panel has been designed to be flexible, both to accommodate the range of measurements required at the outset but also to factor in potential upgrades with future changes or requirements. The modular design of the panel also facilitates the fitting of a number of other manufacturers’ analysers. The panel is IP54 rated with gas analysis components supplied from a leading German manufacturer. We offer packages with MCERT / TUV certification.

4 Key Factors that should be considered when comparing our CEMGA system with alternative systems.

  1. Electrical Installation – the CEMGA Panel requires only a 240V single phase 13A supply.
  2. Ease of Installation – the analyser and data logger are self-contained within the panel. This can be positioned up to 20m away from the sampling location (as standard). A single heated line transports the gas to be analysed to the analyser panel. A single umbilical connection provides power and signal cables for additional instruments such as dust monitors, temperature sensors etc. Installation and commissioning time can therefore be greatly reduced.
  3. Compressed Air Requirement – many CEM systems require significant volumes of instrument grade compressed air. This can be costly to supply and failures can have very expensive consequences for the instrumentation. Where possible our system is supplied with no compressed air requirements.
  4. Maintenance and Calibration – maintenance is critical on any CEM system to ensure long-term reliable operation. We provide comprehensive support programmes to facilitate this. The systems are designed to be accessible for service and utilise standard parts. This enables engineers’ time on-site to be kept to a minimum and service consumables to be kept low, thus keeping costs low.

The permit must be issued in line with schedule 13A of the Environmental Permitting Regulations and must reflect the requirements of article 44 of the Industrial Emissions Directive. (Ref. DEFRA Environmental Permitting Guidance: waste incineration 22 December 2015).
