EPA Method 0060:
DETERMINATION OF METALS IN STACK EMISSIONS

Summary:
This method is used to determine the concentration of metals in stack emissions from hazardous waste incinerators and similar combustion processes.

Scope:
The stack sample is withdrawn isokinetically from the source. Particulate emissions are collected in the probe and on a heated filter and gaseous emissions are collected in a series of chilled impingers as shown in Figure 1 and described in Section 4.1.6. Two impingers are empty, two impingers contain an aqueous solution of dilute nitric acid combined with dilute hydrogen peroxide, two other impingers contain acidic potassium permanganate solution, and the last impinger contains a desiccant.
