Natural Gas Transmission
Windrock offers a full range of exhaust emissions-related services. These
services are tailored specifically to the natural gas transmission industry
and its unique requirements for testing 2-stroke and 4-stroke spark-ignited
engines and gas turbine drives.
Windrock personnel providing these services are among the most experienced
in the natural gas transmission industry and are knowledgeable in both
emissions and mechanical/performance testing. Their unique knowledge and
experience in the gas industry allows Windrock to offer a valuable service
to the operators of gas engines and turbines.
Our personnel are not only experienced in testing the equipment but understand
how engines and turbines are operated and maintained. They also have a
unique understanding of the combustion process of natural gas-fired engines/turbines
and how the effects of that process impact emissions so you can be sure
that the test results are accurate; and, if a unit is not in compliance,
they can offer assistance to bring it into compliance.
Windrock's customized emissions test trailer is equipped with the latest
instrumentation. These include an FTIR analyzer,
dual exhaust sample lines for catalyst testing, and a self-contained performance
monitoring system to provide continuous power and compressor
cylinder pressure monitoring without the need for local support to obtain
operational data such as load.
The test trailer is compact (less than 16 feet), light weight, and can be
easily maneuvered into very tight spaces. Its power requirements are also
minimal, requiring only two 110 VAC, 15 amp circuits to operate. The instrumentation
allows Windrock to perform the following EPA Method tests, 3A, 7E, 10, 18,
19, 20, 25A, and 320.
- EPA Title V
Compliance Testing - Windrock Service provides all of the equipment
and personnel necessary to perform a full Title V test including developing
an emissions test protocol based on the operator's source permit, conducting
the required tests, and issuing a full test report in accepted EPA book
form or electronic format. EPA Methods that Windrock are capable of
performing are 3A, 7E, 10, 18, 19, 20, 25A, and 320.
Health Testing, Diagnostic/Troubleshooting Services - Windrock provides
this service to any operator who wants to know if their equipment is
running properly with regard to performance, mechanical condition and/or
emissions. Our experienced staff can test
your engines, evaluate the data and offer detailed recommendations to
resolve any deficiencies in performance, mechanical condition and/or
emissions prior to your scheduled emissions tests.
- Consulting Services
- Windrock test engineers can provide a wide range of consulting service
to assist the operator with engines not operating in compliance with
permits. Such services range from determining the root cause why a unit
is not operating in compliance to recommending or designing specific
remedial solutions to the problem.
- Periodic Testing
- Windrock can conduct the annual periodic tests required to assure
a unit is operating in compliance with its permit. Such tests typically
involve a 30-minute run to measure NOx, CO and occasionally VOCs. Windrock
can provide either a trailer or portable analyzer for testing depending
on the specific requirements.
- Mapping and
Development of Control Coefficients - Windrock provides services
to map engine performance and develop air/fuel ratio control coefficients
designed for emissions compliance under normal operating conditions.
This service is based on the use of a test matrix that employs an air
equivalence ratio model for mapping and predicting emissions. Once the
model is developed, the coefficients are created for use in the unit's
automation control scheme. NOTE: This service is only available for
slow speed integral units.
- RATA Testing
- RATA tests to verify that CEM (continuous emissions monitoring) systems
are operating properly.
- Catalyst Testing
- Catalyst tests to check the efficiency of the catalyst for CO and
NOx or HCHO.
- Ammonia Slippage
Test - Ammonia slippage test to tune the ammonia injection rate
and test for ammonia slippage past the NOx catalyst.
- CEM Systems
- Windrock services can offer complete CEM packages from engineering,
design, manufacture and installation through Control Analytic, Inc.
- Horsepower and
Mechanical Condition Testing - Windrock offers test equipment and
services for horsepower testing/verification and mechanical condition
analysis on slow or high-speed engine/compressor sets
