MOKENA, IL – American Combustion Service, Inc. (ACSI) is helping businesses come into compliance with new Environmental Protection Agency rules for boilers. These guidelines, Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (boiler MACT) vary based on a boiler’s size, age, fuel type and emissions.
“We know that these regulations can be confusing,” states Frank Lacny, president of American Combustion Service, Inc. “There are standards with exceptions for almost every rule. We cut through this and help our customers get into compliance.”
Any building that operates with a boiler could be required to comply with these rules. The EPA is mandating that boilers and process heaters are inspected and tuned up per regulations, including stack testing for oxygen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Burner components need to be cleaned and replaced as needed. The fuel to air ratio has to be optimized and equipment correctly calibrated. It is important to note that both before and after combustion readings must be documented. Even if no adjustments were required.
ACSI has been in business for over 30 years and has always known that their success depends upon the quality of services provided. While the EPA has not specified fines or actions associated with non-compliance yet, it is expected in the future. Planning early reduces stress as deadlines approach.
