This audit is very similar to a linearity check for gaseous monitors. Actually, the linearity check is based on this opacity audit.

It uses reference materials of three different values and the response of the system to each calibration lens is measured three separate times, for a grand total of nine (9) readings.

Sabata is a Japanese company, which has been in the monitoring business over 20 years, and is reported to have a number of installations (both opacity monitors and PM monitors) throughout Japan.

Of course, Plant Yates is required to monitor and to report excess opacity emissions. Monitors with an external zero device may be tested with either the manufacturer’s certificate of conformance (MCOC), or on-site performance testing.

If an external zero device is used for zero alignment audits, the audit must be performed with the COMS off the stack every three years. data on its compliance with the applicable opacity limits, and on the performance of its monitoring systems.
