The paper compares three candidate sampling methods--the EPA Modified Method 5 (MM5), the Oregon Method 7 (OM7), and the ASTM proposed Method P180--preparatory to selecting a wood stove operating procedure and related emission sampling method. (NOTE: The EPA is developing a New Source Performance Standard for wood burning stoves. This is one of several issues to be resolved during the development process). Five wood stoves (two catalytic, one noncatalytic generic, one noncatalytic high efficiency, and one catalytic fireplace insert) were tested. Results showed good correlations between the emission measurements obtained with each method.
