US EPA Method 5, 5A, 5B, 5D, 5E, 5F, 5G, 5H, 5I

Method 5

Determination of Particulate Matter Emission Rates from Stack Gas

Method 5 is used to determine particulate matter emission rates by removing the particulate matter isokinetically from the source and collecting it on a heated glass fiver filter and in the probe and nozzle wash (also from the first impinger if in Texas) and measured gravimetrically. This method is applicable for the determinations of PM emissions from stationary sources where sample port is large enough for the sample nozzle.

Method 5A

Determination of Particulate Matter Emissions from the Asphalt Processing and Asphalt Roofing Industry

This method is applicable for the determination of PM emissions from asphalt roofing industry process saturators, blowing stills, and other sources as specified in the regulations. Method 5A is used to determine particulate matter emission rates by removing the particulate matter isokinetically from the source and collecting it on a heated glass fiber filter and in the probe and nozzle wash (also from the first impinger if in Texas) and measured gravimetrically. This method is applicable for the determinations of PM emissions from stationary sources where sample port is large enough for the sample nozzle.

Method 5B

Determination of Non-Sulfuric Acid Particulate Matter Emissions from Stationary Sources

This Method is applicable for the determination of non-sulfuric acid particulate matter from stationary sources, only where specified by an applicable subpart of the regulations or where approved by the administrator for a particular application.

Method 5D

Determination of Particulate Matter Emissions from Positive Pressure Fabric Filters

This method is applicable for the determination of PM emissions from positive pressure fabric filters.

Method 5E

Determination of Particulate Matter Emissions from the Wool Fiberglass Insulation Manufacturing Industry

This method is applicable for the determination of PM emissions from wool fiberglass insulation manufacturing sources.

Method 5F

Determination of Non-Sulfate Particulate Matter Emissions from Stationary Sources

This method is applicable for the determination of non-sulfate PM emissions from stationary sources. Use of this method must be specified by an applicable subpart of the standards, or approved by the administrator for a particular application.

Method 5G

Determination of Particulate Matter Emissions from Wood Heaters (Dilution Tunnel Sampling Location)

This method is applicable for the determination of PM emissions from wood heaters.

Method 5H

Determination of Particulate Matter Emissions from Wood heaters from a Stack Location

This method is applicable for the determination of PM and condensible emissions from wood heaters.

Method 5I

Determination of Low Level Particualte Matter Emissions from Stationary Sources

This method is applicable for the determination of low level particulate matter (PM) emissions from stationary sources. The method is most effective for total PM catches of 50 mg or less.
