The report gives results of an adaptability study of commercially available sample conditioning and measurement systems, in the form of a guidelines document to be used by EPA and industry personnel. As part of EPA-sponsored research programs to investigate sampling and analysis methods for hazardous waste incineration (focused on adapting existing methods for identifying and quantifying constituents listed in 40 CFR 261), the adaptability of existing continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) involves such measurement categories as SO2, SO3, NOx, CO, CO2, O2, HCl, and organic materials. Study results indicate that commercially available extractive continuous monitors can be adapted to incinerators through proper sample conditioning. Available CEMS provide the ranges and sensitivities needed to accurately measure concentrations of the organic and inorganic components of interest.
