Changes in Operating Procedures for Aerosol Concentration Uniformity for PM2.5 and PM10 Sampler Testing

Abstract: This technical note documents changes in the standard operating procedures used at the Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA) aerosol testing wind tunnel facility for testing of particulate matter monitoring methods of PM2.5 and PM10. These changes are relative to the operating procedures described in Ranade et al. (1990). The required PM2.5 tests are detailed in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 40, Part 53, Subpart F, and are identical to those of PM10 with respect to required spatial distributions of velocity and particle concentrations.

The U.S. EPA through its Office of Research and Development funded and collaborated in the research described here under contract 68-D5-0040 to Research Triangle Institute and under contract 68-D5-0049 to ManTech Environmental. It has been subjected to Agency review and approved for publication. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation for use.
