EPA Method 5H:
DETERMINATION OF PARTICULATE MATTER EMISSIONS FROM WOOD HEATERS FROM A STACK LOCATION

Summary:
Particulate matter is withdrawn proportionally from the wood heater exhaust and is collected on two glass fiber filters separated by impingers immersed in an ice water bath. The first filter is maintained at a temperature of no greater than 120 EC (248 EF). The second filter and the impinger system are cooled such that the temperature of the gas exiting the second filter is no greater than 20 EC (68 EF). The particulate mass collected in the probe, on the filters, and in the impingers is determined gravimetrically after the removal of uncombined water.

Scope:
This method is applicable for the determination of PM and condensible emissions from wood heaters.
