On April 4, 2014, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) issued a compliance advisory to remind all RECLAIM operators that SCAQMD Rules 2011 and 2012 require monitoring of gaseous fuels be expressed in scf (standard cubic feet). Standard gas conditions are, as defined in the rules, a temperature of 68 °F and a pressure of 1 atm. To meet standard conditions, fuel usage meters must have built-in temperature and pressure corrections. Alternatively, operators can make manual corrections based on pressure and temperature gauges installed at the fuel meter.

The provisions of this SCAQMD compliance advisory will go into effect and be enforced July 1, 2014. For any questions, contact Dr. Charles Lee at (949) 567-9880.
