This document provides guidance for evaluating the performance of coal-fired industrial boilers relative to a pollution control agency's particulate air pollution control rules and regulations. The guidance and checklists in this document enable an air pollution control agency inspector to check a boiler operation quickly and efficiently. A thorough description of stoker-fired and pulverized coal-fired industrial boilers helps prepare the inspector for the field inspection. Pollution control equipment typically used on industrial boilers (multicyclones, fabric filters, electrostatic precipitators, and scrubbers) is described as well as common problems and possible solutions that influence the operation and maintenance of these devices. Baseline data for a boiler and its pollution control equipment normally are established during a compliance stack test. Information contained in this report shows the agency inspector how to compare current boiler operations to the baseline data for a compliance determination. This is particularly useful when a clearly defined cause-and-effect relationship cannot be established for a given source.
