In July 1976 at the request of EPA, Region IX, Enforcement Division, the Aerotherm Division of the Acurex Corporation conducted a series of air pollutant mass emissions tests at the new Cornelia Branch copper smelter of the Phelps Dodge Corporation located in Ajo, Arizona. The tests were performed simultaneously at three locations: (1) the main stack, (2) the reverberatory furnace duct and (3) the converter side sulfuric acid plant tail gas duct. Tests for particulate matter (Method 5), sulfur dioxide and sulfuric acid (Method 8) were conducted at each location using a combined sampling train. In addition tests for 'condensable particulate matter' were conducted at the main stack and the reverberatory furnace duct using the combined Method 5 and 8 sampling train with an instack filter added.
