    Flue Gas Analysis Credentials

    Does anyone know if you can simply buy a combustion analyzer kit and perform the test in-house or do you have to be specifically licensed to perform this analysis? I have several licensed boiler mechanics on staff, but was told today that you needed a special credential to be able to perform this task.

    Combustion

    It SHOULD be a required license. Combustion analyzers can save lives when used properly, or destroy them when not.

    I bought my analyzers without any specific license.

    Karim,

    I would suggest getting yourself and your techs trained on the proper procedures for testing equipment. I have a three day seminar that I teach called "Testing Design Gas Equipment", contact me at 401-437-0557 or gastc@cox.net for e-mail.
