Significance and Use
4.1 This guide is intended for users of OP/FT-IR monitors. Applications of OP/FT-IR systems include monitoring for hazardous air pollutants in ambient air, along the perimeter of an industrial facility, at hazardous waste sites and landfills, in response to accidental chemical spills or releases, and in workplace environments.
1.1 This guide covers active open-path Fourier transform infrared (OP/FT-IR) monitors and provides guidelines for using active OP/FT-IR monitors to obtain concentrations of gases and vapors in air.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
