Trace Environmental Systems is the industry leader in providing turnkey continuous emission monitoring solutions for stacks, as well as data acquisition and reporting software (DAS). Trace is a fully integrated company providing monitoring systems, DAHS reporting software and ongoing support services to ensure long-term, trouble-free compliance.
Our systems satisfy greenhouse-gas emissions rules (GHG Rule) in addition to federal and state source permitting requirements. Parameters monitored include NOx, SO2, CO, CO2, O2, total hydrocarbons (THC), opacity, stack flow and others.
Continuous emissions monitoring (CEM) and predictive emissions monitoring (PEM) systems
Since 1995, Trace has been providing complete systems for many different industries. We are the only system provider that offers both CEMs and PEMs and we can provide a truly objective monitoring solution.
We are prominent in industries such as biomass power (wood and biomass boilers), wastewater treatment plants (fluidized-bed incinerators and multiple hearth incinerators), municipal solid-waste plants (trash to energy), biofuel plants (ethanol), power plants (cogen, boilers, CHP and utilities) and petro-chemical refineries and marketing terminals.
Trace also has many clients in the chemical industry. Our CEM system can be used in walk-in, climate-controlled shelters suitable for harsh environments, including explosion-proof areas.
CEM and PEM data acquisition and reporting software
Our DAS 2000 monitoring and reporting software is the direct result of over 14 years of applied knowledge, expertise and experience. Knowledgeable CEM and PEM experts look upon DAS 2000 as the most reliable and easy to use CEM software in the industry.
In addition to our guarantees of full compliance with state and federal reporting requirements (part 60 and part 75), DAS 2000 enables users to have quick and easy access to their data. Plant personnel need not spend countless hours trying to figure out how to work with or optimize DAS 2000. Nor is time wasted on endless attempts to access and review data.
DAS 2000 has the ability to communicate with various PLCs (Allen Bradley, GE, Siemens and others) as well as with data loggers (ESC 8832, 8816, H2NS, etc). This means that software replacements are trouble-free because we can work in parallel with the existing software while the change-out process occurs — ensuring no lost operating time or data.
Due to the ease of use of DAS 2000, operators and engineers quickly master the intuitive layout of the data and system set-up. Combined with the automated data-handling routines, this means more time for plant personnel to focus on other tasks at the plant.
