Title: Effluent Management Facility Stack Monitor Qualification

Abstract

Sampling and monitoring at the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) Effluent Management Facility (EMF) exhaust is required to meet the regulatory criteria that governs stacks that may exceed the 0.1-millirem per year threshold limit given in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 61, National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, Subpart H, National Emission Standard for Emissions of Radionuclides other than Radon from Department of Energy Facilities. As a result, the flow conditions and probe location must be within certain bounds as prescribed by the American National Standards Institute/Health Physics Society (ANSI/HPS) standard N13.1-1999. Compliance with the standard may be demonstrated by tests on the stack itself, or with a surrogate stack (i.e., a scale model or other geometrically similar stack). Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has performed scale model stack tests for 11 of the 20 emission points that are planned for the WTP. Additionally, PNNL has full scale stack results from Idaho National Laboratory and PNNL facility stacks to use as references. One or more WTP scale model stack results were expected to be appropriate as a surrogate stack to the EMF. This report describes the EMF stack monitoring location as well as anmore » assessment of existing surrogate stacks used to qualify the EMF stack sampling location.« less
