Status: inactive
Page Count: 13
ICS Code (Air quality in general): 13.040.01
ICS Code (Physicochemical methods of analysis): 71.040.50
significance And Use:

Many industrial processes require determination of NMOC in the atmosphere.

Accurate measurements of ambient concentrations of NMOC are important for the control of photochemical smog... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers a procedure for sampling and determining concentrations of non-methane organic compounds (NMOC) in ambient, indoor, or workplace atmospheres.

1.2 The test method describes the collection of cumulative samples in passivated stainless steel canisters and subsequent laboratory analysis.

1.2.1 This test method describes a procedure for sampling in canisters at final pressures above atmospheric pressure (referred to as pressurized sampling).

1.3 This test method employs a cryogenic trapping procedure for concentration of the NMOC prior to analysis.

1.4 This test method describes the determination of the NMOC by the simple flame ionization detector (FID), without the gas chromatographic columns and complex procedures necessary for species separation.

1.5 The range of this test method is from 20 to 10 000 ppbC (1, 2). See for procedures for lowering the range.

1.6 The test method may yield less accurate results for some halogenated or oxygenated hydrocarbons emitted from nearby sources of industrial air pollutants. This is especially true if there are high concentrations of chlorocarbons or chlorofluorocarbons present.

1.7 The values stated in SI units are regarded as standard.

1.8 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
