EPA Method 1 Part 3

At BAIR, we believe in the greater good that comes from industrial progress, However, we also believe in doing things the RIGHT WAY.

Short Stacks

Short Stacks

We are the only source testing company that provides value based fully compliant emissions testing that WILL NOT put our clients reputation or credibility on the line. It's not always pretty or easy for us to do our job. Sometimes we have to get creative.

Oftentimes we encounter stacks that are too short to meet RM1 flow disturbance criteria. 

The first note from EPA RM1 states: “The requirements of this method must be considered before construction of a new facility from which emissions are to be measured; failure to do so may require subsequent alterations to the stack or deviation from the standard procedure. Cases involving variants are subject to approval by the Administrator. 

Variances may be applied but they will always be subject to the approval of the administrator. Additionally, they will also be reviewed on a “case by case” basis. That being said, short exhaust stacks are an all too frequent problem and one of the more common compliance issues we run into on a regular basis.
