Danny Landry: Drones for Inspection and Air Quality Monitoring

Sep 27, 2018

Danny Landry is a pioneering entrepreneur in the field of drone (or UAV) use for industrial inspection and air quality monitoring. In this episode of Hot Air, I talk with Danny about various UAV applications in air quality monitoring, optical gas[…]


Using High-Definition Infrared Optical Gas Imaging for N2O Leak Detection

Sep 5, 2018

Infrared cameras are typically perceived as tools for hydrocarbon detection. However, with the proper equipment, they can be used for a variety of chemical detection projects. For example, CleanAir recently received a request from a whipped cream[…]


The ACE Rule: When is an Emission Increase an Emission Increase?

Aug 21, 2018

The Trump EPA's new Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule proposal announced today aims to replace the Obama EPA's Clean Power Plan (CPP) for limiting CO2 emissions from coal-fired power plants. The new proposal finds that the Best System of[…]


New Elliptical Pitot Tube for Water Flow Measurement

Jan 15, 2018

Water flow rate is often a critical measurement for various power plant components and systems including cooling towers, pumps, and condensers. For over 40 years the Simplex-type Pitot Tube has been the industry standard for accurate water flow[…]


MATS Electronic Reporting (E-Reporting)

Dec 22, 2017

If your facility is an EGU that complies with Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), you are probably aware of some new electronic reporting dates in the coming year. On April 6, 2017, a final rule on MATS electronic reporting was published in[…]


Benefits of Cloud-Based Monitoring In Environmental Applications

Dec 7, 2017

The need to reduce cycle time and drive efficiency throughout the value chain will always be a critical business focus. And with the digital transformation of environmental monitoring, we can shift these requirements away from historically being[…]

Being closer together is better for both of us. Since the fall of 2016, our new office in Sumner, Washington has made it possible for CleanAir to better serve your needs faster and more efficiently. While our location in Sumner is relatively new,[…]


VOC Adsorption and Recovery Publication in Environmental Science & Technology

Jul 7, 2017

Activated carbon fiber cloth (ACFC), shown in the scanning electron microscope image above, is a novel adsorbent that can be used for volatile organic compound (VOC) control. One of the unique qualities that separates ACFC from the more[…]


Infrared Remote Velocity Measurement

Jun 15, 2017


One of the cool projects we are working on involves remote sensing of stack gas velocity using infrared imaging and digital image correlation. Using this technique, we can determine stack gas flow without even climbing the stack… stack-free[…]


Using Drones to Measure Stack Emissions

Jun 14, 2017

On a recent project, CleanAir used an open-path Active FTIR (AFTIR) system coupled with a drone (or unmanned aerial vehicle, UAV) to analyze pollutants in on a high, inaccessible stack. This is not the Passive FTIR system employed in many of the[…]
