A method for the measurement of particulate and sulfur oxides emissions has been developed and tested in the laboratory and the field. The development shows that changes in analysis methods, procedures, and materials are necessary in order to adapt standard USEPA methods to gas turbine conditions. In particular, extreme care must be taken to prevent the formation of pseudo particulate from sulfur dioxide. The field results demonstrate that a G.E. MS7001B emits less than 10 lbm/hr of total particulate if the fuel ash and sulfur content are suitably restricted.
