Paper Abstract

Stack gases of wood and oil burning boilers operating at Technical Research Centre of Finland were analyzed by a commercial FTIR-Gas Analyzer System. Concentrations of CO2, CO, NO, NO2, N2O, HCN, NH3, SO2, HCl, CH4, and H2O were monitored in real time by multicomponent analysis software of the Gas Analyzer System. Detection limits for different components varied from sub-ppms to few ppms using 8 cm-1 spectral resolution and 20 second measurement time. Analysis of calibration gases showed a high degree of accuracy and repeatability of the measurement method.
