This course covers the theory and practice of ambient, indoor and source emission testing, as well as sampling techniques and devices nowadays utilized in industry to determine gases, odours, vapours and particulates. The course also covers the theory of operation of direct reading instruments such as photo-ionization and non-dispersive infrared detectors, chemical and catalytic sensors, and odour samplers. Principles of gas collection using passive and active sorbent samplers are explained and demonstrated. The isokinetic sampling, gas flow measurements, determination of gas composition and molecular weight, moisture determination methods, and sampling train components are explained for particulate emission testing. Laboratory sessions cover calibration of instruments, sampling plan development and practical application of instrumentation (sampling/testing) in accordance with standard sampling and testing methods and regulations.
