Source Assessment Sampling System (SASS) Versus Dilution Tunnel Sampling
- 76 Downloads
Two sampling methods have received increased attention recently because of their ability to collect particulate and organic emissions from combustion sources (Huisingh et al., 1978; Lewtas, in press). One method of sampling, represented by the Source Assessment Sampling System (SASS), is designed to collect and size-classify particulate and to collect nonparticulate organic and inorganic materials at source conditions. The second method, represented by various types of dilution tunnel, is designed to collect total particulate and particulate-bound organic material at conditions which approximate ambient environment.
