Abstract:

The report describes the quality assurancequality control program conducted during 1990 field testing which supported the OBOD Thermal Treatment Methods Study. The QAQC program encompassed sample collection, preparation, storage, extraction, analytical instrument operation, data reduction, statistical data analyses and interpretation. Samples included atmosphere collected In evacuated stainless steel canisters, soil, and Teflon coated-glass- fiber media. The supercritical fluid chromatograph and gas chromatograph with mass spectrometers were the principal laboratory analytical Instruments used during these field tests. Real-time instruments detected and quantified Col C02, NO, NO2, and NOx. Near-real-time analyses were accomplished by use of a Teflon bag in which samples of the plume were collected for analyses during testing operations. Sample-tracking was conducted using a system which permitted precise identification of individual specimens from collection through analyses or archiving. Analysis of atmosphere and soil samples spiked by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency EPA reflected a degree of accuracy well within acceptable limits.
