Methods of collection and analysis for monitoring stationary sources must demonstrate conclusively that the methodology is functioning properly and according to specified EPA criteria. The appropriate procedure for demonstrating proper operation of the method is to perform dynamic spiking of the analyte in the field, at the specified source being monitored. Gaseous dynamic spiking, using certified gas mixtures as the spiking medium has been used in previous EPA stationary source sampling methods and documented in EPA reports. Liquid dynamic spiking, using mixtures of liquid and solid analytes in an organic or aqueous solvent has also been used in previous EPA field tests. To remove, as much as possible, the potential for human error, the EPA has developed a prototype liquid dynamic spiking system employing computerized operation of the analyte spiking procedure with video monitoring and control of the liquid droplet frequency and size. This report describes development of the system, its applicability to stationary source sampling, the individual parts incorporated into the system, and the standard operating procedures.
