This document provides a systematic guide for the technician conducting tests to CAN/CSA B415.1-2010 Performance Testing of Solid-Fuel-Burning Heating Appliances. This guide cannot cover every possible contingency that may develop during a particular test program. Many questions that may arise can be answered by a complete understanding of the test protocol and its intent. When in doubt on any detail check with the laboratory manager and be sure you understand the procedures involved. The primary measurements to be obtained are particulate emission data and efficiency data. The technician's duties include the following steps. It is critical that all spaces on the data forms be properly filled in. Each test must be represented by a complete record of what was done and when.
