A study was performed to evaluate the EPA Method 5 procedure for measurement of particulate emissions from a cement kiln. The program included three series of experiments to study the effects of anisokinetic sampling, sampling system temperature, filter size, and nozzle configuration on particulate mass emission determinations. Method 5 was compared with two types of in-stack filters in a fourth set of experiments. The results of the experiments were analyzed by statistical analysis to assess the significance of the sampling system variables on observed differences in collected particulate mass. Chemical and physical characterizations were performed to evaluate the representativeness of collected particulates and to elucidate the cause of mass differences introduced by various sampling system operating parameters.
