Opacity monitor performance audit procedures and devices have been developed and field tested on 93 opacity monitors. The results of this test program indicate that opacity monitoring systems achieve high levels of availability, and are capable of providing accurate emissions data. This document describes the audit program for continuous emission monitors (CEMs) of effluent opacity. Detailed explanations of the audit methodology, monitor analyses, and analytical criteria are included, and both criteria- and monitor-specific results of installed opacity monitor audits are delineated. Finally, conclusions are drawn as to the adequacy of monitor performance and data reliability, and recommendations are offered that can optimize opacity monitoring system performance.
