A mobile air pollution research laboratory described in this report, has been designed and constructed into a semi-trailer shell. The laboratory will be used by EPA for making simultaneous measurements of many air pollutants using state-of-the-art instrumentation. A semi-trailer with an air suspension system was chosen as the basic vehicle. Electrical service of 400 amperes at 230 volts (half for air conditioning) was installed into the trailer. The 3 work benches for aerosol, gas, and data instruments, were arranged as islands allowing open aisle space and the clustering of sampling instruments for reduction of sampling losses. The roof is covered with catwalk material which facilitates the fastening of equipment. Under-compartments contain necessary sampling pumps and blowers and serve as storage compartments. Twin electrical main service cables connect to an external electrical service pole for 115/230 VAC power.
