Xact 625i
Ambient/Fence-Line Multi-Metals Monitor (AMM)


Cooper Environmental’s (CES) Xact® 625i is designed for high time resolution multi-metals monitoring of ambient air, with detection limits that rival those of laboratory analysis. The Xact® 625i comes standard with a solid-state meteorological sensor and CES’s proprietary ADAPT analysis package, making the instrument one of the most powerful air pollution source detection offerings in the industry.

The Xact® 625i monitoring system can simultaneously identify and measure multiple metals in ambient air to provide data for use in the following applications:
  • Fence-line monitoring of metals processing facilities, incinerators, metal smelters, battery manufacturing facilities, cement plants, glass factories, and more
  • Source detection of lead, arsenic, nickel, and cadmium as well as other metals
  • Source Apportionment
  • Determination of background concentrations
  • Spatial recognition of pollution sources
  • Temporal recognition of pollution sources
  • Resolve acute, short duration events
  • Risk and emergency management

CES ADAPT




CES ADAPT
Large Ambient Metals Monitor



The Xact® 625i continuously generates large amounts of high quality metals data.  Offline analysis of such datasets can be time and resource intensive process for the environmental agencies.  Cooper Environmental is offering a hardware-software package, Automated Data Analysis Plotting Toolset (ADAPT), to manage and analyze Xact® 625i measured metals in real-time through a number of relevant graphical tools.

The ADAPT package includes the hardware for on-site meteorological measurement and an intuitive software which is accessed through Xact® 625i itself, or remotely by accessing the on-board computer.  The software platform generates multiple research-quality graphical reports to deliver unique insight on the temporal and variability trends of the metals.  This intuitive toolset will allow the Xact® users to make data-driven decisions towards efficiently managing metal emissions.

BENEFITS:
  1. Graphical reports accessible in near real-time
  2. Results displayed with numerous journal-quality graphics
  3. Cost effective resource for monitoring the efficacy of the control strategies
  4. Drastically reduces data processing time
  5. Designed by air quality researchers with over 50 years combined experience
  6. Beneficial for air quality managers and environmental agencies


Xact 625 Ambient Metals Monitor



  1. CES’ Xact™ 625 is designed for monitoring metals in ambient air, fence-line of industrial facilities and in complex urban environments, where particulate matter and metal concentrations are typically elevated.
  2. The Xact system uses reel-to-reel (RTR) filter tape sampling and nondestructive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis. Air is sampled through a PM size-selective inlet and drawn through filter tape.
  3. The resulting PM deposit is then advanced into the analysis area where the sample is analyzed by XRF for selected metals as the next sample is collected.
  4. Sampling and analysis are performed continuously and simultaneously, with the exception of tape advancement (~20 seconds) and once daily automated quality assurance checks (30 minutes).
  5. Alpha 401 for monitoring Benzene.

Xact 640 CEMS Stack Monitor



  1. CES’ Xact™ 640 system uses reel-to-reel (RTR) filter tape sampling and nondestructive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis to monitor stack hazardous air pollutant (HAP) metal emissions. An isokinetic sub-sample of stack gas goes into the stilling chamber and then drawn through a chemically reactive filter tape. Vapor phase metals, including mercury, are deposited along with particulate-phase metals on the filter tape.
  2. The deposit is automatically advanced and analyzed by XRF for selected metals as the next sample is being collected. Sampling and analysis are performed continuously and simultaneously, except during advancement of the tape (~20 sec) and during daily automated quality assurance checks.
  3. EPA approved the Xact™ 640 CEMS as an alternative method for periodic Method 29 testing, feed stream analysis, and monitoring emissions during plant operation.

Xact 645 Mercury CEMS



  1. CES’ Xact™ 645 continuous mercury (Hg) monitor collects and analyzes emission samples for mercury, which can be measured simultaneously using patented reactive filter technology and nondestructive X-ray fluorescence (XRF).
  2. A sample of gas is extracted from a source, diluted, and drawn through a chemically reactive filter tape. Vapor phase mercury is deposited along with particulate-phase metals on the filter tape.
  3. The deposit is automatically advanced and analyzed by XRF for metals by a proven reel-to-reel (RTR) tape drive, as the next sample is being collected.
  4. Sampling and analysis are performed continuously and simultaneously, except during advancement of the tape (~20 sec) and during daily automated quality assurance checks.
