EPA Compliance Training & Consulting
EPA Onsite Training: With increasing EPA enforcement of regulations including MACT regulations, on-site EPA compliance training is one of the most important and most commonly purchased FilterSense services. Several categories of support are offered for small and larger groups. Training classes range from basic compliance overview sessions to detailed product training, data analysis, regulation review, and strategies. Our objective is to be your partner in proactive and cost-effective adherence to EPA compliance.
Basic EPA Training
This training provides an overview of the regulation and how the products and installation relate to the rule or standard.
Quality Assurance Procedure Training
This training includes a complete review of required or recommended quality assurance procedures such as those found in the EPA Fabric Filter Leak Detection Guidance, ASTM standard for particulate monitors or other standards. Classroom training can be followed by hands on execution of QA procedures.
MACT Alarm Set Point Analysis & Strategies
The application of fabric filter leak detection systems in a compliance setting can be challenging. The MACT Alarm Set Point course provides an overview of the key techniques used to analyze and interpret the widely dynamic nature of particle emission monitor signals from fabric filters, especially multi-compartment baghouses. This service also provides strategies and examples on how to set alarms that are not too low or too high and that are within regulatory requirements.
Quarterly EPA Maintenance Contracts
This service provides a quarterly on-site visit to verify instrument calibration, QA response testing, reporting software function, and historical data logging.
