Prolab.Q LIMS Emissions in the Atmosphere module is the ideal tool for companies with plants that convey emissions into the atmosphere because it allows to manage all the data required by the environmental and safety regulations and work hygiene.
- D.Lgs. 152/2006 Part V
- EN 13284-1 – Determination of the concentration of powders in low concentrations
- EN ISO 16911 – Manual and automatic determination of the speed and the flow of streams in ducts
- EN 15259 – Emission measurement from a fixed source. Requirements for sections and metering sites and targets, of plan and measurement ratio.
Through this simple and intuitive module you can:
- Manage and book all the sampling teams, instrumentation and consumables;
- Get the whole plant under control customer by customer;
- Perform calculations of flows, speeds, springs etc.;
- Keep track of all the steps (operator, value entered, compilation date and time);
- Automatically calculate results and measurement uncertainty.
The acceptance of the samples, by order or by an estimate/contract, expects data encoding related to the duct to be sampled (place, shape, size, abatement facilities, etc.). These informations can also be retrieved from the master data table of the chimneys. In addition, you can encode other general informations (operator, weather, team, etc.) and attach reference documents such as the authorization decree and the blueprints of the site.
This module also allows you to plan and program resources (operators and equipment) so as to optimize the sampling and analysis in function of the available resources.
Upon acceptance the module proceeds with the coding of the cycles, which can be inserted directly or by electronic sheets. It manage automatisms such as sampling time counts, the flow of the sampling pump depending on the nozzle used, the volume sampled, the choice of the sampling equipment, including the choice of Pitot tube with automatic association of the constant.
It is also possible to record information about the various systems/analysis tools used – such as TOC, FID, NDIR, etc.
There are various automatic functions related to the calculation of speed and flow rates which will then be used to calculate the final average.
Measurements according to UNI 10169: 2001 are performed by means of automatic calculations of the minimum number of bases, of the measurement of the bases according to general or tangential rules, of the bulk density, of the level of humidity, of the speed of the humidty and dryness flow and of the scope of the humid, dry and normalized flow according to the norm. It is possible to exclude the humidity calculations if it is an exclusively dry flow.
Tests and Test Reports
The test results are entered as an absolute quantity (mg, μg, etc.) and the calculation of concentration and mass flow will be run by Prolab.Q through the volume of air sampled and the calculated flow rate.
Subsequently Prolab.Q provides the printing of the test reports with the description of the emission characteristics, the subdivision by analytical category (SOV, Powders, IPA…) of sample data and analytical data, the indication of concentration, mass flow, uncertainty and limits.
