Contents Notes
"The report summarizes results of a reinterpretation of data generated in a laboratory study of the sensitivity of two types of portable hydrocarbon detectors to a variety of organic compounds. Detector sensitivity is quantified by a response factor for each compound where the response factor equals the actual concentration of the compound divided by the observed concentration from the detector. The previous report estimated response factors at 10,000 ppmv actual concentration of the compound. This report presents response factors estimated for a 10, 000 ppmv detector reading. The instruments were calibrated to 7993 ppmv methane gas."
