Liquid nitrogen-cooled cold-traps were used to establish the collection efficiency for fluorides of two different source sampling trains at primary aluminum reduction plants and wet-process phosphoric acid plants. It was found that the glass frit filter support commonly used in stationary source sampling trains retained fluoride during sampling; therefore, the filter should not be placed before the impingers when sampling for fluoride. Also described are the results of a collaborative test on two standard distillation procedures for fluorides; sulfuric acid distillation and steam distillation from perchloric acid. The results show that the predominant source of imprecision in both methods is the distillation step itself.
