Contents Notes
"The thrust of this task was to evaluate and test currently available portable instrumentation used to monitor fugitive organic emissions generated by the transfer and storage of liquid wastes during the operation of hazardous waste incinerators. One subtask involved evaluating relevant current methodology. The other involved testing results and recommendations of the evaluation. The evaluation of current methodology for portable volatile organic compound (VOC) monitors, with regard to their applicability in monitoring fugitive organic emissions from hazardous waste incinerators, has been completed, and is documented as Appendix A of the full report. The recommendation was to perform a limited field test with two photoionization analyzers (PIDs) at an operating liquid waste incinerator. A portable flame ionization detector (FID) (for which considerable prior data exists) was to be used as reference. The second portion of this task, constituting the bulk of this report, consists of results of field tests at the Cincinnati Municipal Sewer District's incinerator. The data indicate that, for this application, either a PID containing a 10.2 eV light source or a FID is suitable."
