Stationary source emissions - Automatic method for the determination of the methane concentration using flame ionisation detection (FID)
|Publication Date:||1 August 2010|
|ICS Code (Stationary source emissions):||13.040.40|
This International Standard specifies the principle, the essential performance criteria, and quality assurance and quality control procedures for an automatic method for measuring methane in the waste gas of stationary sources using flame ionisation detection. It is applicable to measurements of methane in dry or wet waste gases. The method allows continuous monitoring with permanently installed measuring systems as well as intermittent measurements of methane emissions.
NOTE 1 This International Standard is specific to automatic methods for measuring methane in the waste gas of stationary sources using flame ionisation detection. It supplements the general requirements of other international or national standards on performance testing, QA/QC procedures, and the test report as specified, for example, in EN 15267-3, EN 14181, and EN 15259.
This International Standard does not specify an independent method of measurement.
NOTE 2 An independent method of measurement, e.g. to calibrate or validate permanently installed measuring systems, is specified in ISO 25139.
NOTE 3 In EN 14181, "independent method of measurement" is called "standard reference method (SRM)".
