This report discusses the field operation problems associated with use of four portable volatile organic compound (VOC) detection instruments in conducting Reference Method 21 VOC screenings. The report presents the results of the field trials and summarizes the ease of use of each instrument. Information on operational problems and recommendations are provided. Also included are discussions of the features that would make all portable instruments more reliable, durable, or convenient to use. Based on the data collected for this study, three of the instruments report similar leak rates in the facility where they were used.
