This test report describes the measurement and characterization of fine particulate matter (fine PM) emissions and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from an institutional scale no. 2 distillate oil-fired boiler with a rated capacity of 60,000 lbs/h (18.7 MW, 67.3 GJ/h)1. This category of boilers was responsible for an estimated 1245.4 kJ (ca. 45.6%) of distillate oil consumption in the U.S. in 1990. The boiler tested in this study was one of three boilers in a university power plant that provided space and water heating to a number of buildings on the university campus. Sampling was conducted in the exhaust duct of one boiler prior to the point at which all three boiler exhausts were combined into a single exhaust stream to the power plant stack. The boiler employed low-NOx burners for control of NOx emissions, but no devices for control of particulate matter were utilized. The report presents results of the test efforts in two ways: As mass emission factors (i.e., mass of emitted species per unit mass of fuel consumed), and mass fraction composition of the particle and gas phase emissions.
