STACK EMISSION INVESTIGATIONS IN THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH SPEED DIESEL GENERATORS OF VARIOUS CAPACITIES

KARUPPIAHI, SUMATHIS AND GURUNADHARAOBVS

Abstract

Chennai, the Capital city of Tamil Nadu located at the southern part of India has a floating population of about 1.3 crore as on 2019 census. Chennai has the highest level of air pollution due to vehicular movements and various industrial activities. The major Industrial areas in Chennai are classified in to Thiruvottiyur Industrial Area, Manali Industrial Area and Ambattur Industrial Area. These industries produce the continuous emissions which is been discharged in to the environment. The emissions coming out from the industries are discharged only through the stacks. Thus, the stacks serve as the interconnecting source between the Industry and the Environment. The current study involves the stack emission monitoring for the printing and packaging industry located in the Thiruvottiyur area. For this purpose, stack emission studies from 5 generators of various capacities, employing High Speed Diesel (HSD) were undertaken. The stack emission monitoring was carried out as per IS: 11255 (Part 1)- 1985. Stack monitoring kit was engaged in the stack monitoring analysis. The parameters considered for the study are particulate matters, oxides of Sulphur, oxides of Nitrogen. From the results it is been observed that the particulates coming out from the stack were all within the CPCB norms, whereas the emissions coming out from the stack of capacity 750 KVA DG SET 1 was very high due to the operation of older engine. Some of the pollution control measures were also suggested for the co25.
