40 CFR 89.309 - Analyzers required for gaseous emissions.
(2) Carbon Dioxide (CO 2) analysis. (i) The carbon dioxide analyzer must be of the non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) absorption type.
(ii) If the temperature of the exhaust gas at the sample probe is below 190 °C, the temperature of the valves, pipework, and so forth, must be controlled so as to maintain a wall temperature of 190 °C ±11 °C. If the temperature of the exhaust gas at the sample probe is above 190 °C, the temperature of the valves, pipework, and so forth, must be controlled so as to maintain a wall temperature greater than 180 °C.
(iv) Fuel and burner air must conform to the specifications in § 89.312.
(v) The percent of oxygen interference must be less than 3 percent, as specified in § 89.319(d).
(5) Oxides of nitrogen (NO X) analysis. (i) This analysis device must consist of the subsequent items, following the sample probe, in the given order:
(C) For raw analysis, an ice bath or other cooling device located after the NOX converter (optional for dilute analysis).
(ii) The quench interference must be less than 3.0 percent as measured in § 89.318.
(b) Other gas analyzers yielding equivalent results may be used with advance approval of the Administrator.
(c) The following requirements must be incorporated in each system used for testing under this subpart.
(1) Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide measurements must be made on a dry basis (for raw exhaust measurement only). Specific requirements for the means of drying the sample can be found in § 89.309(e).
(2) Calibration or span gases for the NOX measurement system must pass through the NO2 to NO converter.
(d) The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of the equipment must be on a level as to minimize additional errors.
(e) Gas drying. Chemical dryers are not an acceptable method of removing water from the sample. Water removal by condensation is acceptable. A water trap performing this function and meeting the specifications in § 89.308(b) is an acceptable method. Means other than condensation may be used only with prior approval from the Administrator.
