The report gives a first-cut estimate of sampling errors in the measurement of total particulate mass emissions from stationary sources. IERL-RTP Procedures Manual: Level 1 Environmental Assessment expresses the desire to measure at accuracies within a factor of + or - 2 to 3. Measurement errors are divided into two general categories: sampling errors and analysis errors. The report deals with evaluation of total particulate mass sampling errors, within the framework of a system error analysis. The evaluation leads to a ranking of individual error sources and estimates of total system error. Analysis results show that a Level 1 should have a sampling accuracy of better than a factor of + or - 2, with a confidence of 95%, except at a control device outlet where the accuracy is more likely to be a factor of + or - 3, especially if the control device is an electrostatic precipitator.
