 JAWMA Paper: Effects of Equilibration Temperature on PM10 Concentrations from the TEOM Method in the Lower Fraser Valley   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
For the period when three collocated TEOM monitors were operated, the PM10 from the monitor at an equilibration temperature of 30 °C was 2.5 mg/m3 (22%) and 1.7 (17%) mg/m3 higher, on average, than the PM10 from monitors at 50 and 40 °C, respectively, and the differences were proportional to the ambient PM10 loading.
Greater volatilization of PSVM in the TEOM monitors at higher equilibration temperatures may have been a cause of the differences.
If greater retention of the sampled PSVM were preferred, the operation of TEOM monitors at 30 oC would be recommended.
