||Estimating personal exposures based on mass balance material usage rates: Validation of a ventilation model in a spray paint booth
||Apr. 2004, Vol.1, No.4, p.213-221. Illus. 16 ref.
||This research examined the validity of a model for estimating airborne contaminant concentrations based on the mass rate of change of compounds used during an industrial process. A study of an industrial spray painting operation involved estimation of the effective ventilation rate, sampling for organic compounds and simultaneously measuring the mass usage of these compounds during painting. The results indicated that the model does appear to be a useful additional tool for estimating worker exposures. However, the characteristics of specific ventilation systems must be understood before modelling is conducted.
