The US EPA is investigating iron and steel foundries to identify and quantify HAPS emitted from cupolas; electric arc furnaces; and pouring, cooling and shakedown operations of sand mold casting processes. GM Corporation, Saginaw Casting Operation (GMC) Saginaw, MI was selected by EPA as the host facility at which to (1) characterize HAP emissions from cupolas that are controlled by wet scrubbers, and (2) assess wet scrubber performance in controlling HAP emissions from cupolas. GMC was selected because EPA deemed this facility to be representative of a large segment of the sand casting foundry industry and a GMC operates a relatively large cupola that is controlled by a wet scrubber. Fourier Transform Infrared emission test runs were conducted at the cupola inlet and outlet locations. Additionally, MRI collected tedlar bag samples from pouring, cooling, shake-out ducts and analyzed by FTIR.
