The objectives of the program were to evaluate the light transmission approach to monitoring particulate pollution and to determine the reliability and degree of correlation of the transmissometer and other particulate measurement methods in a variety of industrial environments. The six industrial environments were as follows: (1) A petroleum refinery catalytic cracking unit catalyst regenerator, (2) Sewage treatment plant incinerator for sludge burning, (3) Asphaltic concrete plant (hot mix), (4/5) Secondary brass and lead smelter, (6) Oil fired power plant. The scope of work required that a commercially available transmissometer be tested at each site for 30 days and its performance evaluated as a continuous monitor of the in-stack opacity, plume opacity and in-stack mass concentration. Data were also obtained on the spectral transmission characteristics and size distribution of the particulate emissions of the plants.
