  3. Validation Study Of FTIR-Based Emissions Measurements At A Municipal Waste Combustor
    2/26/2008

    EPA Test Methods 301 and 320 include statistical techniques for validating sampling methods in specific gas matrices. Several of these techniques were used to analyze extractive FTIR data collected at a municipal solid waste incinerator and to validate the method for hydrogen chloride (HCl) measurements. FTIR results for carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and nitric oxide (NO) were also compared to measurements recorded by the facility’s continuous emissions monitors (CEMs). Presented are discussions of the equipment, spectral analyses, and statistical comparisons of the various test methods. Submitted by MIDAC Corporation

  9. Case Study: Gilbert-Summit Rural Water District - Gilbert, South Carolina
    9/7/2006

    This radium removal pilot study was conducted for Gilbert-Summit Rural Water District in Gilbert, South Carolina. The raw water source for this pilot study was taken prior to any treatment, or the addition of any chemicals, and therefore operated only when the well was operating. Water from the well is treated with blended phosphate, fluoride and chlorine before it enters the distribution system. Naturally occurring radionuclides in the Gilbert- Summit Water District’s raw water source exceed current Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL’s) for combined radium
