DESCRIPTION
The transceiver emits a beam of light that passes through the
stack or duct and strikes a reector. The light beam is reected
back and the amount of light returned is measured by the
transceiver. Dust particles in the stack will absorb and scatter the
transmitted beam of light so that the returned light will be less
than the transmitted light. The ratio of the returned light is called
the transmission. One (1) minus the transmission is referred to
as the opacity. For dust concentration measurements, optical
density (also called extinction), is historically used because of
the linear relationship between dust concentration and optical
density. The of one (1) divided by the transmission yields the
optical density. The measured transmission value is sent via RS
422 to the stack display, the measured value can be read and
maintenance actions initiated. Purge air alarms are also wired to
this stack display. The measured values and any purge air system faults are then sent via RS 422 to the D-R 290 AW remote
display.

At the remote display, the measured value is displayed and the


system parameters can be viewed or changed. This remote
display also contains the system status inputs, the relay outputs
and the two independent current outputs. One current output may
be set to read opacity and the other to read dust concentration.
If dust concentration is required, a stack test is normally required
to calibrate the extinction reading to a specic concentration (e.g.
determine the extinction coefcient). Purge air blowers are used
to keep the optics clean. Weather hoods are used to protect the
blowers and the monitor from the environment. Fail-safe shutters
can be installed to protect the optics if a purge air blower should
fail or lose power and may also protect service personnel on
over-pressure stacks. These shutters are exercised during the
daily calibration to insure they are in working order when needed
and to prevent them from sticking in the open position.
