This technical assistance document is intended to serve as a supplement to manufacturers' instruction manuals for automated, ambient, non-methane organic compound analyzers. It addresses augmented set-up, calibration, operation, and maintenance procedures that have been developed for the purpose of producing non-methane organic compound data suitable for use in the Empirical Kinetic Modeling Approach and other dispersion models used to predict ozone concentrations. The document initially discusses common aspects of these procedures in general terms for hydrocarbon analyzers as a whole and then specifically addresses their application to analyzers manufactured by The Bendix Corporation, Mine Safety Appliances Company, and Beckman Instruments, Inc., and Meloy Laboratories, Inc.
