Isaac Smith, the District Manager of the PPM Mobile office joins the podcast to discuss Stack Testing.

 

Stack Testing is a procedure for sampling a gas stream from a single sampling location at a facility, unit, or pollution control equipment.

 

Key Topics and Takeaways

  • Stack Testing is a great tool to sure up what permits a facility needs and to demonstrate that a facility is below regulatory limits
  • Different states have different requirements for various facilities
  • Results from stack testing can be used for various purposes, such as modeling, air emissions reporting and annual compliance demonstrations. The results can live on forever so it’s important that a facility has an in depth plan in place when they go to stack test
  • As climate change has put more scrutiny and regulations on various industries stack testing has become a very important tool for these industries (such as oil and gas.)
