Title The tracer gas technique - A useful tool for industrial hygiene.
Bibliographic information June 1980, Vol.6, No.2, p.123-130. 23 ref.
Abstract Carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and sulfur hexafluoride were added to the make-up air to determine local ventilation rates and spreading routes of dilution air in the work environment. Continuous monitoring of NO by infrared spectrophotometer was the most practical choice for ventilation testing; plastic bag sampling of NO or SF6 and analysis by gas chromatography were useful for emission spreading studies.
