Prior to introduction into service and monthly thereafter, the methane analyzer shall be calibrated:
(a) Follow the manufacturer's instructions for instrument startup and operation. Adjust the analyzer to optimize performance.
(b) Zero the methane analyzer with zero-grade air.
(c) Calibrate on each used operating range with a minimum of 6, approximately equally spaced, CH4 in air calibration gases (e.g., 15, 40, 45, 60, 75, and 90 percent of that range). For each range calibrated, if the deviation from a least-squares best-fit straight line is within ±2 percent of the value at each non-zero data point and within ±0.3 percent of full scale on the zero data point, then concentration values may be calculated by using the linear calibration equation for that range. If the deviation exceeds these limits, then the best-fit non-linear equation which represents the data within these limits shall be used to determine concentration values.
