A laboratory evaluation and field testing program has been carried out to investigate the performance of a commercially available RM-4 Transmissometer as an in-situ monitor of industrial exhaust stack emissions. The laboratory phase of the program involved specific tests of the transmissometer design characteristics, operational parameters, extended time performance, and calibration. The instrument was then installed in the field for a minimum period of 30 days at each of three sites which were: (1) a basic oxygen furnance for the manufacture of steel, (2) an industrial chemical plant for the manufacture of sulfuric acid, and (3) an industrial plant for the manufacture of Portland cement. At each of these three sites opacity measurements were made of the stack exit plume for comparison with transmissometer generated data.
