Training Procedure to Evaluate Visible Emissions.
West Virginia Air Pollution Control Commission, Charleston.
Described in this pamphlet is a procedure used by the West Virginia Air Pollution Control Commission to train personnel in evaluating visible emissions. For this purpose a "Smoke Observer's Training Unit" has been designed, a machine capable of generating both gray/black plumes for training in the use of Ringlemann readings and white plumes for training to "read" the densities of plumes other than gray/black. Procedures for using the equipment are explained together with how the training should be conducted regarding reading techniques and actual reading practice. Forms for recording visual readings of both kinds of plumes as used in the training process are included. Also stated are certification requirements. (BL)
