The Very Sharp Cut Cyclone, BX-1020, and the latest BAM User's Manuals are now available to ARB staff

The objective of the Air Monitoring Web Manual is to provide standard procedures for maintaining and operating air monitoring stations and detailed instructions for acceptance testing, maintaining, troubleshooting and calibrating specific analyzers or support equipment.

The accuracy and/or validity of data obtained from any analyzer depends upon analyzer performance and operator proficiency. Deviations from the recommended procedures set forth in this manual, as well as in the Manufacturer's Instruction Manual, may result in the collection of invalid data.

Therefore, the station operator must become familiar with the information contained in this manual as well as each Manufacturer's Instruction Manual in order to achieve a minimum level of competence and acceptable level of data quality.

For questions or comments related to these documents, please contact Matthew Vona at (916) 323-1807 or Matt Quok at (916) 445-2555 of the Operations Support Section.
