The paper discusses field and laboratory evaluation of a woodstove dilution sampling system. Two sampling methods have been developed and used by EPA to test emissions from woodstoves: both remove flue gas directly from the appliance chimney. The two methods have been developed to meet two goals of EPA sponsored research and development: (1) the woodstove dilution sampling system (WSDSS) addresses the need to simulate or model the atmosphere/stack interface and to provide emissions samples as they are distributed between vapor phase and particle bound material; and (2) the modified method 5 (MM5) system addresses the need to perform direct source sampling without dilution or condensation. Comparison of the WSDSS and MM5 sampling systems in laboratory tests is presented.
