Over the next year, Seneca performed three sets of emission tests using more advanced EPA methods than were contemplated when the permit was issued to prove that what looked like elevated condensable
emissions were actually false positives attributable to defects in the old test methods.
ASTM E 595-93, Standard Test Method for Total Mass Loss and Collected Volatile Condensable
Materials from Outgas-sing in a Vacuum Environment.
Impacts on EER* and SEER* for non-TXV and Hot Attic Conditions Description [EER*.
Liquid yield obtained in pyrolysis is usually determined as the weight of condensable
volatile matter and that obtained in water conversion or hydrogenation as the weight of soluble matter in a certain solvent.
The total pressure in the system should also be as high as possible during this process to give the condensable
stuff as much chance as possible to escape.
The planet's deep blue-green atmosphere is thick with hydrogen, helium and methane, Uranus's primary condensable
Compounds that are gases in the stack but condense to form submicron particles in the atmosphere and can be measured using standard stack test methods for condensable
particulate matter (CPM).
Pyrolysis converts organics such as biomass into three phases: solid (char), liquid (tars, condensable
When a vacuum pump is required to handle high fluid flows and condensable
vapours, a liquid ring pump is often the best choice.
The test's full title is "A Standard Test Method for Total Mass Loss and Collected Volatile Condensable
Materials from Outgassing in a Vacuum Environment".
For process-type applications where there are high throughputs of gases with significant condensable
by-products, Steele recommends the use of magnetically-levitated turbopumps that can handle corrosive gases or vapors.
