Stack testing sampling & analysis
M3V environmental consulting experts have many years of experience in stack testing. Our stack testing services have helped our clients remain in compliance with environmental rules and regulations.
What is a stack test?
A stack test is a procedure for sampling a gas stream from a single sampling location at a facility, unit, or pollution control equipment. A stack test is used to determine a pollutant emission rate, concentration, or parameter while the facility, unit, or pollution control equipment is operating at conditions that result in the measurement of the highest emission or parameter values (prior to any control device), or at other operating conditions approved by the state agency or the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
A test is comprised of 3 sampling runs for a specified sampling time span. Additional conditions may be required by applicable rules, permit, or enforcement order.
The testing shall be performed using sampling and analytical procedures approved by the department or the U.S. EPA for the specific pollutant or parameter and facility, unit, pollution control equipment, process, or operation.
Other names for Stack Test are:
- Emission Test
- Source Sampling Test
- Compliance Test
- Performance Test
