CO*    *    Linear pro-rata    *    *    CO monitor by EPA Method 10 and Methods 2 & 4
VOC*    *    Linear pro-rata    *    *    EPA Methods 18 and 25A

NH3    *2    none    *    *    EPA CTM 027
H2SO4*    *    Linear pro-rata    *    *    Controlled Condensate, EPA Method 8A
Natural Gas consumption in the Afterburner    *    none    *    *    Natural Gas Flow rate in DCS / AB Potential Heat Input


* Maximum single hourly lbs/hr value of noted emissions can exceed given limit by up to 20%


CEMS and EPA Methods 2 & 4 – these parameters can be measured using either the stack CEMS, if certified prior to testing and mutually agreed to by Owner and Contractor in the test protocol, or an independent test company’s equipment according to EPA Methods 2, 4 and 7E for NOx or 6C for SO2.
