Heated Filter Box
In Method 5 and other methods for out-of-stack measurement of stack emissions, when sampling for particulate matte, it is mandatory for the sample to be drawn iso-kinetically. The sample is drawn through a probe and is collected on a glass fiber filter. In order to prevent loss of particulates to water that may form due to condensation of water vapour present in the sampled stack gas , the probe and the filter are required to be maintained typically at a temperature of 120 ± 14 °C (248 ± 25 °F).
This necessitates the filter holders also to be maintained at the above mentioned temperatures in addition to heating the sampling probes.
Polltech's heated filter box Model PEM–HFB2 meets these requirements adequately. It comprises a double walled thermally insulated, electrically heated compartment. It is capable of accepting a glass or PTFE filter holders of various sizes. Uniform heating is provide by a large area sealed tubular heater element. Heated probes are held in place by a strong SS probe clamp. An independent electronic module comprising two digital electronic temperature controllers control and display the temperatures in real time.
