||This paper reports on a second field evaluation study performed at a different source category to demonstrate that the methodology is not source-specific. An incinerator that burned chemical waste was selected as the second test site. The field test was designed according to the guidelines of EPA Method 301, using liquid dynamic spiking with two spiking schemes. The semivolatile organic compounds were spiked as a liquid spike into two of four quadruple SemiVOST trains either as a solution of Acid/Neutral compounds or Base/Neutral compounds. A minimum of ten quadruple sampling runs each was performed for Acid/Neutral and Base/Neutral SemiVOST. Statistical analysis of the results was performed according to the guidelines of EPA Method 301. Of the 55 semivolatile organic compounds tested by the SemiVOST method, 24 met Method 301 acceptance criteria. Bias and precision were good for the Neutrals, but poor for the Acidic and Basic compounds.
