Emissions Testing Training (aka Stack Testing)
RMB's new stack test training module provides a comprehensive overview of EPA Reference Methods commonly used to demonstrate compliance or performed as part of relative accuracy test audits (RATA) and/or MATS Rule required testing. RMB will identify key points in each method, including a review of common constants, measurement variables and equations. The training will also include presentations on the planning and execution of stack test programs and the review and reporting of stack test results. RMB will go over the roles and responsibilities for environmental, operations and test team personnel.
The objective of the training class is to provide a basic understanding of the reference methods and outline the intricacies associated with any test program. The training manual can be used as a quick reference guide for environmental personnel tasked with observing stack test programs and/or reviewing RATA or MATS Rule test results.
The training can be tailored to your specific needs and is presented over the course of one to two days.
Key Reference Methods Discussed:
- Flow Methods - Methods 1, 2, 2F, 2G and 2H
