Full Service Project Installation of
BetaGuard Particulate Monitors for a Utility Plant

For this project, the team at Mechanical Systems, Inc., provided a full service systems integration of two BetaGuard Particulate Monitors at a coal-fired power plant in Indiana.

In addition to particulate characterization testing and installation of two BetaGuard Particulate Monitors, the scope of the project incorporated developing a certification test plan and performing all correlation studies to ensure full compliance with the EPA’s Performance Specification-11 (PS-11) for the installation of particulate matter monitoring systems. We also integrated the BetaGuard monitors into the customer’s data acquisition and handling system, developed a quality assurance program to ensure that ongoing performance would meet regulatory requirements, and supplied them with tools they needed to manage and adjust the system to keep daily operations reliable, safe, and efficient. Furthermore, we contracted with them to supply preventive maintenance services to guarantee operational continuity and avoid downtime.
