Title Critical evaluation of continuous monitors for toluene diisocyanate.
Bibliographic information Dec. 1980, Vol.41, No.12, p.869-878. Illus. 14 réf.
Abstract The modalities and results of an exhaustive and critical laboratory study to evaluate the performance of continuous area and personal monitors are described. The studies consisted of dynamic calibrations, the effect of humidity and temperature on the measurements, and the interferences due to commonly encountered contaminants in a TDI manufacturing plant. The response and resolution of the personal monitor for short-term fluctuations of TDI concentration in time and space are reported.
