Petroleum Refinery

Petroleum refineries must comply with evolving air emissions monitoring regulations, including the Environmental Protection Agency’s 40 CFR Part 63 (MACT CC) requirements via the Refinery Sector Rule (RSR).

Flare monitoring data collection, validation, and management is nearly impossible with inefficient spreadsheets that rely on data collected from the DCS and sent to the plant historian. Read more about how an ESC Spectrum DAS helps you meet data and monitoring requirements.

ESC Spectrum’s Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) solutions, including industry-leading Data Acquisition Systems (DAS) plus a wide variety of DAS and CEM systems, hardware, and services, are tailor-made to help refineries meet their challenges. 

DAS Solutions for Petroleum Refineries

StackVision and Prism are the leading Continuous Emission Monitoring Data Acquisition Systems for facilities in a wide variety of industries, with more than 3,100 air emission sources across the United States.  Learn more about how refineries use ESC Spectrum’s Data Acquisition Systems to efficiently meet RSR requirements and react quickly to flaring events when needed. 


Both work seamlessly with the 8864 Data Controller to collect, monitor, QA, and report on emissions data from continuous monitoring systems accurately and reliably.


Our data acquisition systems are backed by 24/7/365 best-in-class customer support from a dedicated team of experts, online and in-person training, and are in continuous development to keep pace with industry changes.
