Project Summaries for Petrochemical Facilities
Client: Petroleum Refinery – Emission Source: Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit
An emission test program was conducted in evaluation of a fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) catalytic generator. Sampling was conducted at two inlet locations in determination of particulate and particle size at a temperature of 750oF and 10 psi. Simultaneous sampling was performed at the regenerator outlet in determination of particulate, PM-10, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and non-methane hydrocarbons.
The entire program was conducted under two separate operating scenarios.
Client: Petroleum Refinery – Emission Source: Gasoline Terminal Flare
An emission compliance test program was conducted in evaluation of the destruction and removal efficiency of a ground flare utilized in the control of gasoline vapors displaced during barge loading activities. Total hydrocarbon mass rates were determined at the flare inlet and outlet over a continuous six (6) hour period utilizing EPA Reference Methods 2A and 25B. Carbon monoxide emissions were determined concurrently at the flare outlet by EPA Method 10. A continuous emission monitor was also evaluated in accordance with Performance Specifications 3 and 4 for oxygen and carbon monoxide.
Client: Petroleum Refinery – Emission Source: Catalyst Regenerator
AirNova, Inc. conducted an emission compliance test program on an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) which served as the control device for a catalyst regenerator. The test program was conducted in determination of particulate matter and sulfur oxides emissions.
Client: Petroleum and Specialty Chemicals Facility – Source: Fuel Gas Streams
AirNova, Inc. conducted a Continuous Emission Monitor (CEM) Relative Accuracy Test Audit (RATA) program for an analyzer system utilized to monitor the H2S concentration of two (2) fuel gas streams. Emission concentrations were determined utilizing both on-site gas chromatography with flame photometric detector and on-site EPA Method 11 titrations.
Client: Petroleum Refinery – Emission Source: Gasoline Vapor Recovery Unit
AirNova, Inc. has performed several test programs to determine the hydrocarbon emissions from gasoline vapor recovery units (VRU) during loading at bulk gasoline terminals in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York and New Jersey. EPA Method 2D was utilized for flow measurements and EPA Method 25B was utilized for total hydrocarbon concentration measurement.
Client: Petroleum Refinery – Emission Source: Bulk Loading Terminal
AirNova, Inc. conducted an emission compliance test program to determine the removal efficiency of a carbon absorber utilized as a control device for a bulk gasoline loading terminal. The volumetric flow rate and total hydrocarbon concentrations were determined at the control device inlet and outlet. Benzene emissions were also determined utilizing EPA Method 18.
