SM-4 mobile

Technically identical to the SM-4, this device is ideal for mercury determination at varying sites.

The SM-4 Mobile by Mercury Instruments has been developed on the basis of the well proven SM-4 mercury stack gas monitor. Its measurement principle and technique, its thermocatalytic reactor, the detector and the sample probe are identical with those of the stationary SM-4.


  • Easy to transport
  • Qickly dismounted and reassembled
  • Sample dilution directly at the probe: eliminates interference with virtually any sample matrix
  • Maintenance free low temperature converter directly at stack: no transport of ionic mercury thus minimizing mercury adsorption
  • Detects total mercury (elemental, ionic and bound mercury)
  • Automatic calibration for elementary and ionic Hg
  • Automatic quality control (QAL3) during operation
  • Extremely wide range of measurement:
    0,05 bis 1000 µg/m³


  • Coal fired power plants
  • Waste incineration plants
  • Sewage sludge incineration plants
  • Cement kilns
  • Recording of Hg emission situations as well as determination of the efficency of  mercury reduction systems
  • Method 30A applications
  • Testing of stationary CEMs
  • Optimization of mercury control technologies
