Two candidate measurement methods, Constant Sampling Rate (CSR) and Exhaust Gas Recycle (EGR), have been developed to measure emissions of in-stack PM-10 particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than 10 micrometers. Two field tests were performed at the clinker cooler exhaust of a Portland cement plant to quantify precision and comparability of these techniques. In addition, accuracy was determined for total particulate measurement by comparison to Method 17. Collocated sampling trains were operated parallel with two Method 17 trains. In the second test, two CSR and one EGR trains were operated parallel to two Method 17 trains. The operating procedures used for the CSR and EGR trains are described in detail. In measurement of PM-10 and total particulate matter, the precision of both the CSR and EGR techniques was found to be of the same magnitude as Method 17 (approximately 5%). A small bias was found between CSR and EGR PM-10 results (15%) and between EGR and Method 17 total particulate matter (10%). Although small, these observed differences, combined with the results of laboratory studies reported elsewhere, led to a recommendation for an increase in the length of sampling nozzles. This modification improved cyclone performance and is incorporated into the nozzle geometries described in the application guides for CSR and EGR.
