The report gives size-specific, uncontrolled emission factors and control efficiencies developed from many studies of particulate control device performance conducted under the direction of EPA's Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory (AEERL) between 1974 and 1981. The particle size ranges of concern are 02.5, 2.5-6, 6-10, and 0-10 micrometers. These data and the sampling and analysis procedures documented in the reports were subjected to a quality assurance review and then compared with source- and control-device-specific information in several data sources maintained by EPA's Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS). Where no relevant information existed in these data sources, it was determined that the data developed from these studies should be incorporated into them. Each control device study is reviewed individually. For each study, the source, control device, and sampling configuration are described briefly, the quality of the sampling and analysis methods is rated informally, the data are compared with comparable AP-42 data, and conclusions are drawn regarding the need for the data in the OAQPS data sources. Reviews of documents which yielded data not suitable for inclusion in the OAQPS data sources are also included.
