Abstract
The report summarizes the initial loading of data into the Fine Particle Emissions Information System (FPEIS), a computerized database on primary fine particle emissions to the atmosphere from stationary sources, designed to assist engineers and scientists engaged in fine particle control technology development. The FPEIS, a successor to the MRI Fine Particle Inventory developed in 1971, report summarizes 52 series of tests on 33 types of sources and a variety of conventional and novel control devices. The test series contain over 700 test runs or sampling events, utilizing impactors of various types, optical particle counters, and diffusion batteries for the fine particle measurements. Particle size distributions from typical tests are given. The report also describes the FPEIS, summarizes the data acquisition activities, and assesses data acquired relative to the effectiveness of particle control technology and the current state of the FPEIS database. The report discusses particulate sampling and sizing techniques, and particulate-related health effects.
