Abstract : A source emission testing for criteria pollutants was conducted on gas-fired boilers 3 and 5 at the Elmendorf AFB Heat and Power Plant during 21-29 April 1992 by the Air Quality Function of Armstrong Laboratory. The State of Alaska has indicated it will approve a permit modification to allow operation of the Heat and Power Plant boilers in excess of 60% of the nameplant design capacity upon source emissions compliance. This report contains a detailed evaluation of each pollutant and a comparison of the two boilers. Boiler 5 was selected as the most efficient boiler while boiler 3 was the least efficient. Results demonstrated that both boilers generated approximately the same amount of pollutants.
