The manual lists and describes the instruments and techniques that are available for measuring the concentration or size distribution of particles suspended in process streams. The standard, official, well established methods are described as well as some experimental methods and prototype instruments. To the extent that the information could be found, an evaluation of the performance of each instrument is included. The manual describes instruments and procedures for measuring mass concentrations, opacity, and particle size distribution. It also includes procedures for planning and implementing tests for control device evaluation, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography.
