Who Should Take This Course
This course is intended for government officials and contractors who take part in the regulation of particulate emissions from stationary sources and for those in industry who are responsible for determining and documenting emission rates from their plants.
We assume that participants in this course have basic knowledge of general chemistry concepts.
- sampling technicians
- consultants & contractors
- facility personnel
The overall objective of this course is to provide participants with a basic understanding of the concepts, equipment, procedures, and calculations required to obtain particulate emission rates from stationary sources according to EPA Methods 1-5.
Method 1: Determining number and location of sampling points
Method 2: Determining stack gas velocity and volumetric flow rate
Method 3: Determining dry molecular weight of the stack gas
Method 4: Determining moisture content of a stack gas
Method 5: Determining particulate emissions from a stationary source
