The report presents the results obtained from a collaborative test of Method 5, a test procedure promulgated by the EPA for the determination of particulate emission levels from stationary sources. Method 5 specified that particulate matter be withdrawn isokinetically from the source and its weight be determined gravimetrically after removal of uncombined water. The test was conducted at a municipal incinerator using 4 collaborative teams. A total of 12 runs were made over a 2 wk. period, and 47 individual concentration determinations made by the 4 collaborators. The resultant working sample was 11 runs and a total of 32 individual observations. These were submitted to statistical analysis to obtain precision estimates for Method 5. The precision is expressed in terms of within-lab, between-lab and lab bias components. For purposes of statistical treatment, the determinations are grouped into blocks. The statistical analysis is based on the assumption that the true emission concentration remains essentially constant over the course of each week's runs.
