    Development and field application are described for the volatile organic sampling train (VOST) for testing incinerator efficiency. The concepts behind the VOST, several stages in its development, and the current status of this technology are discussed. Early experience indicates that the VOST works well in the field and yields good results when used with adequate care and precautions.
