EPA Method 5:
DETERMINATION OF PARTICULATE MATTER EMISSIONS FROM STATIONARY SOURCES

The PM mass, which includes any material that condenses at or above the filtration temperature, is determined gravimetrically after the removal of uncombined water.
This method is applicable for the determination of PM emissions from stationary sources.
