Abstract : At the request of HQ SAC/SGPB, compliance testing for particulate emissions was conducted on four silver reclamation incinerators located in Bldg D, Offutt AFB NE. Testing was accomplished on 1-11 Nov 1988. Testing was required by the State of Nebraska Department of Environmental Control. The State of Nebraska requested the evaluation of emissions for hydrogen chloride and heavy metal (antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, silver and zinc) even though a standard does not exist for these pollutants. Results indicate that incinerators 1, 2 and 3 are in compliance with applicable state standards. Incinerator 4 failed to meet standard with respect to visible and particulate emissions.
