Paper Abstract

Field measurements were carried out to determine the feasibility of using infrared television systems to measure plume characteristics of power plant stack emissions. Emphasis was placed on determining the suitability of these imaging systems for monitoring sulfur dioxide concentrations and effluent velocities in stack emissions. Specific objectives were: (1) to obtain experimental infrared data on stack plume characteristics, (2) to establish optimum infrared television system parameters for detection and measurement of these stack plume emissions, and (3) to determine the feasibility of using the General Electric infrared vidicon to monitor stack plume parameters of interest. This paper describes in detail the test equipment, measurement techniques, and resulting data associated with experiments conducted at the Duke Power Company Riverbend Station. Data on observed infrared emissions from refinery burn-off stacks are also presented for comparison.
