Improving Measurement for Smokestack Emissions - Workshop Summary

Author(s)
Rodney A. Bryant, Aaron N. Johnson, John D. Wright, Tamae M. Wong, James R. Whetstone, Michael R. Moldover, Iosif I. Shinder, Scott Swiggard, Chris Gunning, David Elam, Tom Martz, Eric Harman, David Nuckols, Liang Zhang, Woong Kang, Salvator Vigil
The complex flow conditions inherent in power plant smokestacks make accurate flow measurements challenging, which in turn limits the accuracy of hazardous

Progress Towards Accurate Monitoring of Flue Gas Emissions

Author(s)
Aaron N. Johnson, Iosif I. Shinder, Michael R. Moldover, Joey T. Boyd, Bernard J. Filla
The amounts of CO2 and other pollutants emitted by a coal-fired power plant are measured using a continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) permanently

Errors in Rate of Rise Gas Flow Measurements from Flow Work

Author(s)
John D. Wright, Aaron N. Johnson, Gina M. Kline, Michael R. Moldover
The rate of rise (RoR) method measures the time rate of change of the mass of gas in a collection volume as it is filled via a flow meter under test. The mass

Design and Capabilities of NISTs Scale-Model Smokestack Simulator (SMSS)

Author(s)
Aaron N. Johnson, Joey T. Boyd, Eric Harman, Mohammad M. Khalil, Jacob E. Ricker, Christopher J. Crowley, Rodney A. Bryant, Iosif I. Shinder
The amount of CO2 emitted from a coal-fired power plant (CFPP) is measured by continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) permanently installed in the

Thermal Effects on Critical Flow Venturis

Author(s)
John D. Wright, Aaron N. Johnson, Michael R. Moldover, Woong Kang, Liang Zhang
Critical flow venturis (CFVs) are widely used as working and transfer standards for gas flow measurement because of their long-term calibration stability (5 (e

NIST's Fully Dynamic Gravimetric Liquid Flowmeter Standard.

Author(s)
Jodie G. Pope, Aaron N. Johnson, Bernard J. Filla, Joey T. Boyd, Vern E. Bean, Christopher J. Crowley
We describe a new dynamic, gravimetric, liquid flow standard (LFS) that determines flow by measuring the rate of change of the liquid mass accumulating in a

Liquid Piston Prover Uncertainty Analysis Spreadsheet

Author(s)
John D. Wright, Aaron N. Johnson, Jodie G. Pope
This publication is a spreadsheet that calculates the mass and volume flow uncertainty for a piston prover liquid flow standard based on user inputs of

Improved Nozzle Manifold for Gas Flow Calibrations

Author(s)
Aaron N. Johnson, Chunhui Li, John D. Wright, Gina M. Kline, Christopher J. Crowley
We developed a new nozzle manifold that reduced the uncertainty of flow calibrations from 0.09 % to as low as 0.074 % for flows of air up to 0.84 kg/s (43 000 L
