This proposal describes the steps necessary to develop an online gas chromatographic system capable of continuous monitoring of both volitile and non-volitile organic contaminants in process cooling water in a 15 minute cycle time. Phase I work consisted of development of a sampling system and columns required to separate specified contaminants. Limits of detection, accuracy and precision of the analysis system were determined. An alarm system was developed based on specified limits for each analyzed contaminant. A final report describing the proposed system and documenting the Phase I effort was provided. The Phase II effort consists of design, fabrication, installation and checkout of the monitoring system at AEDC.
