Scope

This European Standard specifies a test bench method for the measurement of the pollutant concentration parameter of a specified airborne hazardous substance from machines using a test bench under specified operating conditions.
This method is only applicable for the determination of emitted gases, vapours and respirable particles.
The determination of the emission rate in a test bench (see EN 1093-3) shall be used when possible.
Measurement of the pollutant concentration parameter of a machine can serve for the:
a) evaluation of the performance of a machine;
b) evaluation of the improvement of the machine;
c) comparison of machines within groups of machines with the same intended use (groups are defined by the function and materials processed),
d) ranking of machines from the same group according to their pollutant concentration parameters;
e) determination of the state of the art of machines with respect to their pollutant concentration parameter.
