This course will provide a detailed introduction to air pollution control equipment and methods used to control
particulate and gaseous air emissions. The course will cover theory, operation, applications, design considerations,
inspection strategies, compliance assurance monitoring and regulations for cyclones, baghouses, wet and dry
scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, carbon beds, bio filters, condensers, flares, thermal and catalytic oxidizers.
NOx controls like selective catalytic reduction (SCR), selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR), flue gas
recirculation (FGR), and ultra low-NOx burners will also be discussed. This course includes a field trip to a local
facility to observe controls in-person, and affords an opportunity for students to interact with facility operators.
Personal Protective Equipment including hard hat, safety glasses, hearing protection, and closed toed shoes
(preferably safety toed) will be required. SITE VISIT RECOMMENDED.
