PM10 Sampling Procedures
For PM10 sampling, follow the steps below:
Ensure that the
PM10 impactor (silver) is installed in the preseparator
assembly. The multiple impactor adaptor is not needed, nor is the
PM2.5 impactor (gold).
Clean and lubricate the EMT (Easy Maintenance Target) every 5 sampling periods. The EMT may need to be cleaned more or less frequently depending on the degree of soiling.
After the sampler has been assembled, calibrated, verified to be in proper working order, and a filter loaded in the filter holder assembly, set flow rate adjustment in accordance with procedures as shown in the Operation Manual.
- Follow all other procedures in the Operation Manual, noting that PM10 is being sampled.
