Environmental Quality Management Inc

Air Emissions Testing Services



Federal and state rules require stationary industrial sources to obtain air permits and install emission control equipment sufficient to meet or maintain regional air quality standards, equipment performance standards, and/or categorical industry emission limits. Emissions testing — which is also known as source testing or stack sampling — is recognized as the most accurate method for determining air emissions and determining source compliance.

Do You Need Help With The Following?

EQ’s Source Test Group is a national leader in environmental source testing. The Group offers experienced, reliable, and independent testing services to clients who need to:

  • Obtain new environmental permits
  • Demonstrate compliance with emission limits in existing permits
  • Determine/verify performance of air pollution control equipment
  • Troubleshoot process control equipment changes
  • Develop emission factors for specific processes

EQ’s Source Test Group has been conducting air emission testing for over 25 years at virtually all types of industrial sources. The Group includes chemical, civil, and environmental engineers who are well versed in all EPA test methodologies and are familiar with permit and compliance issues. They perform all recognized EPA test methods for industrial categories under nearly all temperature, pressure, pollutant concentration, and gas flow conditions, utilizing over 40 different EPA reference methods.

EQ has a comprehensive inventory of continuous emission analyzers, including five total hydrocarbon analyzers and oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides analyzers, as well as all manual method equipment. EQ also provides a mobile emission measurement laboratory as well as an inhouse lab for gravimetric and wet chemistry (titration) analyses, liquid/gas VOC response factor development, and equipment calibration.
