Description / Abstract:


This report presents the results of a field testing effort to characterize particulate emissions from refinery combustion sources. The effort included 155 tests on two process heaters and three boilers over a one year period. The units are described in Table 1-1 along with process conditions and number of tests by category.

The major objective of this program was to determine emission factors, size distribution, and chemical composition of particulates from refinery combustion sources. This was accomplished by measuring and analyzing source emissions from several types of units under a variety of fuel firing and excess air conditions. The tests were run under steady load conditions.

Key study findings and data interpretation are presented in Section 4. A brief discussion of major study findings is given below.
