The paper describes the woodstove dilution sampling system, the results of laboratory characterization of the device, and field measurements of residential woodstove emissions. Under EPA contract, a stack dilution sampling system (SDSS) for field measurement of condensable emissions was designed and constructed . This train was used to measure condensable components of inhalable particulate matter at several sources. Also developed under EPA contract was the ESDSS, a reduced-scale dilution sampling system, which is mechanically suitable for fireplace and wood heater emissions measurement. Residential woodstoves emit large quantities of condensable as well as volatile and semi-volatile organic species. Thus, in order to adequately assess the effect of woodstove particulate emissions on the near-source environment, measurement techniques must be used which do not discriminate against the condensable emissions. Ambient particulate samplers collect the woodstove particulate matter after the plume-mixing dilution and cooling process.
