Title Study of the protective efficiency of sorbent-filter respirators and combined sorbent-particulate filter respirators against liquid organophosphorus insecticides
Original title Badania przydatności pochłaniaczy i filtropochłaniaczy jako ochron stosowanych przy pracach z płynnymi insektycydami fosforoorganicznymi [in Polish]
Bibliographic information 1974, Vol.24, No.80, p.21-37. Illus. 12 ref.
Abstract Study of the relative merits, as means of protection against liquid organophosphorus insecticides, of 4 sorbent filter respirators and 6 combined sorbent-particulate filter respirators manufactured in East Germany, West Germany, Italy and Poland. The parameters compared were: weight of respirator; weight and volume of sorbent material; breathing resistance; relative filtration efficiency of the respirators for different insecticides. The comparative analysis of the results indicates that the combined sorbent-particulate filter respirator is superior to the plain sorbent filter respirator. Numerous comparative tables are given.
