Laboratory studies and a second field evaluation have been completed to assess the performance of the Semi-Volatile Organic Sampling Train (Semi-VOST) method for measuring concentrations of principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs) with boiling points greater than 100 deg C emitted from hazardous waste incineration. The Semi-VOST methodology was tested initially through a series of laboratory experiments and a field test at a hazardous waste incinerator. In the first field test method precision and bias were shown to be compound specific. The second field test was performed at a hazardous waste incinerator using five gaseous deuterated compounds to dynamically spike four simultaneously operating Semi-VOST trains. Toluene, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane, and chlorobenzene were chosen because of boiling point and chemical functionality.
