The manual contains monitor-specific performance audit procedures and data forms for use in conducting audits of installed continuous opacity monitoring systems (COMS's). General auditing procedures and acceptance criteria for various audit criteria are delineated. Practical considerations and common problems encountered in conducting audits are discussed, and recommendations are included to optimize the successful completion of performance audits. Performance audit procedures and field data forms were developed for the following opacity monitors: (1) Lear Siegler Measurement Controls Corporation Dynatron 1100M and MC2000; (2) Lear Siegler Measurement Controls Corporation Model RM-41; (3) Lear Siegler Measurement Controls Corporation Model RM-4;(4) Dynatron Model 1100; (5) Thermo Environmental Instruments, Inc. Model 400; (6) Thermo Environmental Instruments, Inc. Model 1000A; (7) Thermo Environmental Instruments, Inc. Model D-R280AV; (8) Enviroplan Model CEMOP-281; (9) United Sciences, Inc. Model 500C; (10) Land Combustion Model 4500; and (11) DataTest Models 900A and 900RM.
