D G Emission Monitoring

D G Emission Monitoring

Emissions from diesel generators raise a number of problems for both humans and the environment. Constant exposure to such emissions could lead to coughing, nose and throat irritation, headaches, respiratory illnesses and carbon dioxide contributes to greenhouse effect.

Pollutants Released from Diesel Generators

  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Particulate matter
  • Arsenic
  • Benzene

Why Should D G Emission Be Monitored?

Testing for diesel generator emission is crucial to ensure the pollutants are within the permissible limit of compliance. This helps the industries to make any change or modifications to the generators in order to lessen the harmful effect caused by such emissions.

Frequently Asked Question

  • What are the emission limits for DG set?
    A set of new guidelines were implemented on July 1, 2023. As per the guidelines, the emission of oxides of nitrogen and hydrocarbons in a diesel generator with up to 8 kW power should not exceed 7.5 g/kWh.
  • What are the emissions from a diesel generator?
    The study identified that diesel emission levels of NOx, carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons, and particulate matter are a substantial contributor to poor air quality.
  • How does diesel emissions work?
    Your diesel emissions system includes a selective reduction catalyst (SCR) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The catalyst reduces carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxide; the DPF traps soot particles emitted by the engine.
  • What is the frequency of DG stack monitoring?
    The emissions from the cells shall be monitored for total particulates and fluorides every week, while emissions from other stacks shall be monitored once every four weeks.
