The manual presents a method, Constant Sampling Rate (CSR), which allows determination of stationary source PM-10 emissions with hardware similar to that used for Methods 5 or 17. The operating principle of the method is to extract a multipoint sample so that errors due to spatial variation of particle size and anisokinetic sampling are kept within predetermined limits. The manual specifically addresses the use of the CSR methodology for determination of stationary source PM-10 emissions. Material presented in the manual includes calibration of sampling train components, pretest setup calculations, sample recovery, test data reduction, and routine equipment maintenance.
