In these inaugural episodes of CleanAir's podcast series Hot Air, I sit down with Jim Guenthoer to talk about the elements necessary for a successful stack test. Jim brings his 40+ years of stack testing experience to the table and provides lots of practical advice and anecdotes for both those who use stack testing services and those who provide them. Part 1 covers pre-test activities, Part 2 deals with the testing itself, and Part 3 addresses post-test activities.
Our discussion is available as both an audio podcast and a video presentation. During the audio podcast, there are occasional references to the slides but not to the extent that it makes it difficult to follow without the slides. A link to download a copy of Jim's slides is provided below.
The audio podcast can be heard on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, or Google Play or is available via a web link. All links are provided below. Subscribe to the podcast to receive new episodes of interest to anyone involved with air quality issues. Enjoy!
