AS 3580.7.11992

Australian Standard
Methods for sampling and analysis of ambient air Method 7.1: Determination of carbon monoxide Direct-reading instrumental method
This Standard was prepared by the Standards Australia Committee on Methods for Examination of Air to supersede AS 2695 1984, Ambient air Determination of carbon monoxide Direct-reading instrumental method. This edition incorporates minor changes in format and style and is technically identical to AS 2695. The requirements for instruments specified in this Standard were derived from, and are substantially similar to, those given in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Air Regulations Pollution Control Guide, Part 53: Ambient air monitoring reference and equivalent methods, Section 8183, Subpart B: Procedures for testing performance characteristics of automated methods. Acknowledgement is made of the assistance obtained from this document. Instruments bearing the USEPA equivalency designation predominate in Australia where scope for instrument testing and certification is limited. Accordingly, it is necessary to accept the USEPA designation of instruments with minor modifications, where appropriate, for local requirements. The USEPA definitions for performance characteristics vary considerably in presentation (if not in substance) from those currently prescribed in ISO 6879, Air quality Performance characteristics and related concepts for air quality measuring methods, but have nevertheless been retained, virtually intact, for the sake of preserving consistency with the USEPA.

1 SCOPE This Standard sets out a method for determining carbon monoxide in ambient air using a direct-reading instrumental method. The method is applicable to the determination of carbon monoxide in ambient air with concentrations within the range 0 to 500 p.p.m. by volume (0 to approximately 600 mg/m 3). 2 REFERENCED DOCUMENTS The following documents are referred to in this Standard: AS 2922 Ambient air Guide for the siting of sampling units 3580 Methods for sampling and analysis of ambient air 3580.2.2 Method 2.2: Preparation of reference test atmospheres Compressed gas method 3580.4.1 Method 4.1: Determination of sulfur dioxide Direct-reading instrumental method 3 DEFINITIONS For the purpose of this Standard, the definitions given in AS 3580.4.1 apply. 4 PRINCIPLE A sample of the ambient air is drawn into an instrument in which the response of the detector is recorded as a concentration of carbon monoxide.
