EPA Protocols and Other Compliance Gases Defined and Updated

Course Length

1 Hour

Course Description

Numerous Federal and Regional environmental regulations include monitoring requirements which require online analyzers to quantify emissions. Accompanying these rules are guidelines for Continuous Emissions Monitoring (CEMs) performance management and validation of the analyzers to assure proper operation and accuracy of information gathered. A significant component of most performance specifications includes the need for periodic validation and/or calibration of the analyzers using specialized gas calibration standards.

“EPA Protocol” standards are available for some, but not all applications. They are also required for some routine validation and testing, but not for all.

This workshop provides an update on issues and applications related to EPA Protocols and other rules requiring CEMs analyzer calibration standards along with clarification on a number of related topics including:

  • What is a true EPA Protocol calibration standard and what are the requirements for production, traceability, analysis and other requirements related to these gas standards?
  • Overview of rules requiring use of gas calibration standards for Environmental Compliance including some clarification of terminology inconsistencies and hard to follow cross references;
  • When is a Protocol gas required and when is it not?
  • How is performance validation accomplished when no EPA Protocol gases exist for the given application?
  • What is the availability of Alternative and “Quasi-Protocol” standards and how do they stack up with Protocol standards in terms of accuracy, production control, analysis and documentation? (Data Based Review)
  • How are calibration gas shelf life warranties determined?
  • What is meant by “Certified” and “Zero” calibration gas standards and why can the definitions impact compliance?
  • Are there any considerations that should be kept in mind related to pure gases used for Carrier, Purge or other requirements related to purity or analyzer-based specifications? (Ex: “Instrument Air”)

This is intended to be a conversational session and there will be time throughout and following for Q&A.

CEMS

Mass Spec Gas Analyzers: Operation and Maintenance

View course page →

Instructor(s) / Participants

Chuck DeCarlo - Industrial Business Unit Manager, Extrel CMS
Jim Brenner - Product Specialist, Extrel CMS
Haley Gabor - Product Specialist, Extrel CMS

Course Date and Time
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 1:00PM

Course Length

4 Hours

Course Description

Industrial mass spectrometers are fast, full-composition gas analyzers used for flare gas compliance, trace contaminants in air, and fenceline monitoring. They continuously quantify hydrocarbons, sulfurs, air components, VOCs, and other chemicals in complex, dynamic samples. This course will cover all the basics of operation, maintenance and application. Come see the mass spec, learn how to calibrate and run an analysis, and perform a full PM.
