ptcAir Emissions Tuning

During tuning, CleanAir measures NOx, O2 and occasionally CO concentrations from the gas turbine exhaust.   These measurements are made while the tuning engineers adjust the operating parameters of the turbine (e.g., air flows, water injection rates, fuel flow, etc.) to achieve the optimal performance of the unit.

Air Emissions Testing

Turbine performance testing is conducted to establish compliance with emissions limits set by Federal or State regulations, or guaranteed by the equipment manufacturer.   The testing is normally performed at multiple operating loads.   Examples of the testing requirements include those specified under:

  • 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart GG (NSPS)
  • 40 CFR Part 75.19 (fuel and unit specific NOx emission rates)
  • 40 CFR Part 75 Appendix E (NOx emissions from peaking units)
  • Manufacturer's guaranteed limits
  • State required emission compliance testing for criteria and hazardous air pollutants, including NOx, particulate matter, opacity, PM10, PM2.5, CO, VOCs, formaldehyde and ammonia.

CleanAir's performance testing, emissions testing and tuning capabilities provide seamless integration when critical substantial completion milestones are tied to new plant construction.
