[Infographic] Monitoring Emissions from Stack Gases: In-situ versus Extractive

[Infographic] Monitoring Emissions from Stack Gases: In-situ versus Extractive

There are two general approaches to monitoring emissions from stack gases: in-situ analysis or extractive analysis. In-situ analysis involves mounting the analyzer on the stack. Extractive analysis involves transporting the sample from the stack, performing the necessary sample conditioning and finally presenting the sample to the analyzer.
