The purpose of this program was to evaluate the performance of three sulfuric acid vapor sampling systems consisting of (1) a commercially available continuous monitor (SSL) manufactured by Severn Science Limited of Great Britain, (2) an automated prototype sulfuric acid mist monitor (SAMM) developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and (3) a miniaturized, manually controlled-condensation system, also developed by EPA. Difficulties were experienced which included unexpectedly large variations in the SSL results and major operational problems with the prototype SAMM.
