Boilers and process heaters emit air contaminants including oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, oxides of sulfur, particulate matter and toxic air contaminants. All boilers and process heaters with a maximum heat input equal to or greater than 5 million Btu per hour (MMBtu/hr) require a permit to operate from the District.

This boiler is expected to meet current BACT limits. A source test would be required to verify the actual emission rate. EMISSION CALCULATIONS. DATA. Boiler Heat Input is 20 MMBtu/hr . Natural gas F-factor is 8,710 dscf/MMBtu @ 68 °F (40 CFR 60, Appendix A-7, Table 19-2) Molar volume is
Both of these conditions can be caused by a high water level in the boiler. Priming and carryover can also be caused by a high concentration of chemicals in the boiler water, impurities in the boiler water that cause a high surface tension (such as oil), and/or opening a main steam stop valve too quickly.
