The report discusses results from sampling flue gas from an enhanced oil recovery steam generator (EOR steamer) equipped with an MHI PM low-NOx burner. The tests included burner performance/emission mapping tests, comparative testing of an identical steamer equipped with a conventional burner, and comprehensive testing of the low-NOx-burner-equipped steamer. Comprehensive test measurements included continuous flue gas monitoring; source assessment sampling system testing with subsequent laboratory analysis to give total flue gas organics in two boiling point ranges and specific quantitation on the semivolatile organic priority pollutants; C1 to C6 hydrocarbon sampling; Methods 5/8 sampling for particulate and SO2 and SO3 emissions; and emitted particle size distribution tests using Andersen impactors. Full-load NOx emissions of 110 ppm (3% O2) could be maintained from the low-NOx burner at acceptable CO and smoke emissions, compared to about 300 ppm (3% O2) from the conventional-burner-equipped steamer. At the low-NOx condition, CO, SO2, and SO3 emissions were 93, 594, and 3.1 ppm, respectively. Particulate emissions were 39 mg/dscm with a mean particle diameter of 3 to 4 micrometers. Total organic emissions were 11.1 mg/dscm, almost exclusively volatile (C1 to C6) organics. Three PAHs were detected at from 0.1 to 1.4 micrograms/dscm.
