The proceedings consist of 17 papers on improved instruments and techniques for sampling and measuring particulate emissions and aerosols; e.g., cascade impactors, cyclone collectors, and diffusion-battery/nuclei-counter combinations. Transmissometers and instruments for measuring scattered light were used for continuous monitoring of emissions from a secondary lead smelter and from three pulp and paper mill sources (a wood-waste-fired power boiler, a kraft recovery furnace, and a lime kiln). Also discussed were: computer-based data reduction for plotting curves of particle size distribution; equipment for generating aerosols and its use in calibrating instruments; analysis for trace elements in fly ash; and sources of sampling errors. Applications of improved techniques for evaluating emission control devices included: a wet impingement technique for measuring particle sizes in wet scrubbers; use of real-time instruments in studying the dynamic behavior of baghouses; and measurement of fractional collection efficiency and detection of fly ash entrainment in electrostatic precipitators.
