A dilution stack sampler specifically intended to collect fine organic aerosol from combustion sources while minimizing sample contamination has been designed and tested. The sampler simulates the cooling and dilution processes that occur in the plume downwind of a combustion source, so that the organic compounds which condense under ambient conditions will be collected as particulate matter. The special features of this sampler are described in detail, and compared with other stack sampling systems. The results of both laboratory and field tests of the system are discussed. Collection of organic aerosol using this sampler is compared with collection using EPA Method 5.
