The report gives results of performance testing for NOx emission control on Union Carbide's PuraSiv N unit, now controlling emissions from the tail gas stream of the ammonia oxidation nitric acid production facility of Hercules, Inc. in Bessemer, Alabama. Simultaneous measurements of NO2/NOx concentrations were performed in the PuraSiv N inlet and outlet streams during 11 individual 4-hour adsorption cycles, using continuous photometric analyzers. NOx concentrations were also measured at the test sites, using the EPA Method 7 reference procedure, to provide comparative data. Total NOx mass loading to the sieve was variable from cycle to cycle, ranging from 63,370 to 251,800 grams, reported as NO2. Average efficiency of the control unit for the cycles tested ranged from 98.68 to 95.92%. The integrated average concentrations of NOx emitted over the complete cycles ranged from 17 to 154 ppm.
