Wind Sensors and Weather Stations for Environmental Monitoring at Chemical Plants
Accurate Air Quality Monitoring
With increasingly stringent legislative limits on air pollutants released from chemical plants, accurate air quality monitoring is essential. Wind speed and direction information is a vital part of this process.
Emergency Response Planning
An emergency situation can arise at a factory not just from a chemical leak or spillage but also from sudden release of pollutants into the atmosphere via a smoke stack due to an internal processing problem. Under these circumstances accurate real time wind speed and direction data is vital for plume modelling, etc. so that an appropriate emergency response plan can be implemented.
