Abstract A market survey was conducted to determine the availability of portable, direct-reading sulfur dioxide (SO2) meters with a range of 1 to 50 ppm of SO2. Characteristics measured included stability, drifts, linearity, response times, and specificity. Physical characteristics evaluated include portability, readout, instruction manuals, and ease of zero and span adjustments. As a result of these evaluations, optimum use techniques and performance and construction standards are recommended. Quality control standards for portable SO2 meters are also recommended based upon the evaluation results and current industry practices.
