    Abstract

    This paper compares the response and sampling characteristics of chemiluminescent ozone-ethylene monitors, the ultraviolet ozone photometer, and a solid phase chemiluminescent ozone monitor. Gas phase ozone-ethylene monitors from different manufacturers were used in the study to determine the differences in the response and sampling characteristics of some commercially representative monitors. Comparisons included correlation among instruments, typical response characteristics, and a detailed study of maintenance requirements and calibration stability.
