Reference method for measuring releases of particulate from stationary sources: foreword


The six test methods (A to F) presented in this report may be used either independently to determine certain characteristics of a gas stream (e.g., gas velocity, volumetric flow rate and moisture content), or in various combinations to determine particulate emissions. The combination of test methods to be used for a specific source will be given by Environment Canada or prescribed in guidelines and regulations applicable to the industry. The complexity of these methods warrants that personnel performing them be trained and experienced.

Note: Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement for use by Environment Canada.

This Reference Method EPS 1/RM/8 is a revised version of "Standard Reference Methods for Source Testing: Measurement of Emissions of Particulates from Stationary Sources," Report EPS 1-AP-74-1 February 1974.
