Stack testing is a procedure used to sample a gas stream from a single sampling location at a facility. This type of testing is used to determine pollutant emission rate, concentration, or parameter while the facility is operating at conditions that result in the measurement of the highest emission or parameter values (prior to any control device) or at other operating conditions approved by the department or the U.S. EPA.

These tests usually have three sampling runs for a specified sampling time span. Additional conditions may be required by applicable rules, permit, or enforcement order.
