Stationary source emissions - Determination of the mass concentration of PCDDs/PCDFs and dioxin-like PCBs - Part 5: Long-term sampling of PCDDs/PCDFs and PCBs
This Technical Specification specifies the long-term sampling of PCDDs, PCDFs and PCBs. There are three different sampling methods, which use the three different principles described in EN 1948-1 modified for long-term sampling requirements:
— filter/condenser method;
— dilution method;
— cooled probe method.
Each sampling method is illustrated in detail in Annex D. The sampling methods described in this document are designed for a sampling duration of typically four weeks.
Additionally this document specifies a framework of quality control requirements for any long-term sampling method to be applied (see Annex C and Annex F).
With the methods described experiences were gained for a concentration range from typically 0,003 ng I-TEQ/m3 up to 4,0 ng I-TEQ/m3 and 0,003 ng WHO-TEQ/m3 up to 4,0 ng WHO-TEQ/m3 respectively at different stationary sources (e.g. waste incinerators, sinter plants, cement kilns).
For the complete measurement method the use of EN 1948-2 and EN 1948-3 describing extraction and clean-up and identification and quantification, respectively, is necessary in order to determine PCDDs/PCDFs. Also EN 1948-4 is necessary for the analyses of dioxin-like PCBs.
