KBD Technic performs most USEPA testing methods for compliance and engineering evaluations of your process including but not limited to:

  • Method 1, 1A, 2, 2C, 3, 3B, 4 for air flow, temperature and moisture determination
  • Method 5, 5A, 5B, 17, 201A (PM10/PM2.5) and 202 for particulate
  • Method 6, 6C, 8 for sulfur dioxide
  • Method 7E for nitrogen oxides
  • Method 10 for carbon monoxide
  • Method 12 for lead
  • Method 25 and 25A for Volatile Organic Compounds
  • Methods 26 and 26A for hydrogen chlorides
  • Method 29 for metals
  • Method 204 A through F for VOC capture efficiency and total enclosure verification.
  • Method 306 for chromium
  • Method 308 for methanol
  • Performance Specifications for CEM’s/RATA’s

KBD staff will conduct a pre-survey of the process and abatement equipment, review your permit, prepare Compliance Test Protocol for the Agency, conduct the field survey and submit an Agency acceptable final report detailing the findings of the emission survey.
