The paper gives results of a 30-day SO2 monitoring program conducted at a utility boiler equipped with a limestone scrubber. Program objectives were: to demonstrate the reliable use of continuous monitoring equipment for determining scrubber performance, and to support the proposed revised New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) published in the September 19, 1978, Federal Register. Generally, continuous monitoring equipment is reliable as a source surveillance method. Results of the data collected indicate that the test site monitored is capable of performing under the guidelines of the proposed revised NSPS.
