  • NACT 271 Stationary Reciprocating Engines – Tuesday, October 20, 2020 | 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM ET

    Course Description: Stationary reciprocating engines are used widely for power generation, gas compression, and many other purposes. They are also a significant source of air contaminants and as such are the focus of increased regulation. This course covers reciprocating engine operating theory, both standard and “cutting-edge” emission control technologies, regulations, permit conditions, and inspection procedures. AGENDA

    Instructor: Larry Sitzman


    NACT 273 Industrial Boilers – Wednesday, October 21, 2020 | 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM ET

    Course Description: Boilers are one of the most common emission sources and range in use from small fire tube boilers to large utility boilers associated with power plant facilities. The course discusses uses of boilers, heat transfer methods and fundamentals of operation of modern industrial and utility boilers including those fired by natural gas, biomass, municipal waste and coal (circulating fluidized bed units). The course also discusses steam turbines and power generation. This is followed by a detailed discussion on emissions and control techniques such as Low-NOx burners, FGR, staged combustion, SCR and SNCR. New technologies such as Ultra Low-NOx 9 ppm burners, applicable federal and local BACT regulations, permitting requirements and agency inspection procedures and safety concerns are thoroughly discussed. AGENDA

    Instructor: Bob Waterfall


    NACT 287 Dry Cleaning – Thursday, October 22, 2020 | 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM ET

    Course Description: Self-inspection, leak checking and compliance assistance for facilities using perchloroethylene are emphasized in this one-day review of organic solvent fabric cleaning. Classroom discussion will focus on the dry cleaning process and the inspector’s role in ensuring compliance with the NEW Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) for emissions of Perchloroethylene (PERC) from Dry Cleaning Operations.
