Here is an explanation of some of the terms used in flue gas analysis. The list will be extended with time. The browser will open a new window to display the text. Simply close the browser window when you are finished with the descriptions, and you will return automatically to this page.
This list is not exhaustive by any means and suggestions as to new terms to be added are always gratefully received. The American and British spellings have been included separately to aid people using the site search function to find this page or the description itself.
Many of these factors are old friends from long-forgotten chemistry classes or are used in general conversation (not always correctly!). It is always difficult to know what to include and what is so well-known that an explanation is unnecessary. Added to this, the list of factors to be monitored increases regularly, and may be country-specific. Different ambient conditions and fuels can make a factor that is negligible under other circumstances suddenly important.
