The report summarizes the results of collaborative studies of EPA test methods promulgated for use in the determination of emission levels of specified pollutants from stationare sources. The methods tested were Method 7 (Oxides of Nitrogen), Method 6 (Sulfur Dioxide), and Method 5 (Particulates). The tests were conducted using four collaborative teams sampling simultaneously. In conjunction with the collaborative tests of Methods 6 and 7, auxiliary tests were incorporated into the test plan to allow the partitioning of the methods into field and analytical phases for analysis. The collaborators were required to sample standard gas mixtures at three concentration levels addition to the stack samples. The collaborators were also provided with standard liquid samples of either potassium nitrate or sulfuric acid, the concentrations of which were unknown to them. These samples were submitted to replicate analysis during the same period in which the stack and standard gas samples were being analyzed. These determinations allowed the accuracy of the method to be ascertained and the precision of the method to be partitioned into its component parts. The concentrations determined by the collaborators from all sources were submitted to statistical analysis. The results summarize the findings presented in detail in the individual reports on each study.
