This report represents the results of statistical analyses of data from a collaborative test using paired particulate sampling trains. The purposes of the test were to estimate the minimum variability that can be expected with the use of Method 5 and to determine the effect of spatial/temporal changes in the gas flow on a Method 5 result. The paired train consists of two mirror-image Method 5 trains in a single box, and allows two independent laboratories to obtain simultaneous particulate concentration data with probe nozzles only 5.8 cm apart. The report deals with Method 5, and also Method 2 (Velocity) and Method 3 (Stack Gas Analysis), which are called for in the use of Method 5. In addition, the particulate concentrations are converted to the applicable compliance test result for the source tested, and these are also analyzed. The latest in-house revisions of the EPA methods were used in this test, and the results contained here are applicable to these revisions.
