The report reviews the state of the art of monitoring methods and instruments for carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC) in stationary sources. Emissions are characterized from boilers, municipal incinerators, gray iron foundaries, refineries, and asphalt batching plants. Manual methods for CO and HC determination are discussed, and monitoring instrumentation is reviewed. Nondispersive infrared spectroscopy (NDIR), gas chromatography, and flame ionization detection are evaluated in laboratory and pilot plant studies. Field evaluations were conducted on the reported industries. Calibration procedures, accuracy, and some results are reported. A computer program for data reduction is included.
