Stack Emission Testing

EMISSION TESTING

APEX Environmental is well-resourced to perform source emission projects of any size and complexity. Our sophisticated state-of-the-art instrumentation, as well as a staff of experienced professionals, ensures a premier service for our clients.
Some indicators of when stack sampling at an industrial source is conducted, include:

to satisfy testing conditions described in facility permit and approvals
to develop accurate emission inventories and emission factors
to understand and adjust industrial processes
to determine pollutant impacts from specific sources

 

 

STACK SAMPLING TEST METHODS

 


Stack sampling test methods follow procedures and techniques described in US-EPA source testing codes. There are numerous recognised test methods for measuring industrial stack emissions, of which APEX Environmental uses the following:

Method 1-5
Determination of particulate emissions from stationary sources
Method 6
Determination of SO2 emissions from stationary sources
Method 6C
Determination of SO2 emissions from stationary sources (analyzer method)
Method 7
Determination of NOX emissions from stationary sources
Method 7E
Determination of NOX emissions from stationary sources (analyzer method)
Method 8
Determination of sulfuric acid mist and sulfur dioxide
Method 10
Determination of carbon monoxide
Method 18
Measurement of gaseous organic compound emissions by GC
Method 23
Determination of dioxins and furans from stationary sources
Method 26
Determination of HCl emissions from stationary sources
Method 26A
Determination of hydrogen halide and halogen emissions
Method 29
Determination of metals emissions from stationary sources
