The report presents the results obtained from a collaborative test of Method 5, a test procedure for determining particulate emissions from stationary sources. Method 5 specifies that particulate matter be withdrawn isokinetically from the source and its weight determined gravimetrically after the removal of uncombined water. The test was conducted at a fossil fuel-fired steam generating power plant using four collaborative laboratories. Sixteen sample runs were made over a two-week period by the collaborators for a total of 63 individual determinations. The reported values of one of the laboratories were not included in the analysis. Conversation with other personnel who participated in the test, and inspection of the laboratory's sampling train subsequent to the test, provided information which indicated that the determinations made were not representative of Method 5 results. The precision estimates are expressed as standard deviations.
