A market survey is conducted to determine the availability of portable, direct-reading ozone meters with a range of 0.05 to 1 ppm of ozone (10028156). Characteristics measured include stability, drifts, linearity, response times, and specificity. Physical characteristics evaluated include portability, readout, instruction manuals, and ease of zero and span adjustments. Based on these evaluations, optimum use techniques and performance and construction standards are recommended as are quality control standards based on the evaluation results and current industry practices.
