Method 0010/8270D

Semivolatile Organic Compounds from Stationary Sources


This method is used for the collection and analysis of semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) from stationary sources. SVOCs are loosely defined as those compounds with a boiling point greater than 100 °C.  This method is specifically referenced for the determination of destruction and removal efficiencies (DRE) of Prinicipal Organic Hazardous Compounds (POHCs).

Samples are collected isokinetically using a modified Method 5 train which consists of a glass fiber or quartz filter, XAD-2 resin trap, and a series of impingers.  The sampling train is rinsed with methylene chloride, the rinses are collected along with the impinger water and sent to the laboratory for analysis.  Typically, all components of the train including the rinses are extracted and combined to produce one extract for analysis which represents the entire sampling train. 

Method 0010 outlines the collection procedures for the sample and Method 8270C outlines the analytical procedures.

This method also allows for the determination of particulates from the filter and probe rinses if required.


(EPA SW-846)

Method Data
Hold Times, Preservatives, Preps, Collection, Analytical & Documentation
Holding Time:   14 days from collection to extraction and 40 days from extraction to analysis
Preservatives:   Liquid samples (rinses and impinger water) stored on ice for transport to laboratory (4 C 2). The method states that filters for particulates should be unrefrigerated.
Required Preps:   XAD resin trap and glass fiber or quartz filter (a tared filter is needed for particulates)
Collection Method:   Modified Method 5 train following SW-846 Method 0010 procedures
Analytical Methodology:   GC/MS (low resolution)
Documentation:   0010
