Abstract A collaborative study has been performed on Method 6 promulgated by EPA for determining the concentration of sulfur dioxide emissions from stationary sources. Method 6 specified the extraction of a gas sample from the stack, the separation of the sulfur dioxide from the acid mist including sulfurtrioxide, and the measurement of the sulfur dioxide fraction as sulfate by the barium-thorin titration method. Collaborative tests were conducted at both a coal-fired steam generating power plant and an oil-fired pilot plant by the same four collaborative teams. Most (75%) of the reproducibility variation in a test result resides in the field sampling phase of Method 6, with 25% occurring in the analytical phase. Only 13% reproducibility variance is caused by repeatability sources, while 87% results from lab bias sources.
