After a review of the most promising sampling trains for collecting PCB, BAP and other POM from stationary sources, a decision was made to evaluate the EPA Method 5 train, a train with a cartridge filter and a train developed by Hangebrauck, Von Lehmden and Meeker. Arochlor 1242, pyrene, anthracene, benzo (alpha) pyrene, benzo (alpha) anthracene and coronene were selected to determine collection efficiencies. Based on the results from laboratory evaluations, a modified train was developed and subjected to further studies. The results of critical laboratory and field experiments indicate the sampling train developed on this program could be used to efficiently and conveniently collect BAP, POM, and PCB's simultaneously. In the field studies POM materials were detected, identified and quantified in emissions from several stationary sources, including incinerators, a coal burning steam generating plant and a charcoal burning restaurant.
