Title Measurement of air-change rates using integrating instruments
Original title Luftomsättningsmätning med medelvärdesmätande instrument [in Swedish]
Bibliographic information Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Publikationsservice, 171 84 Solna, Sweden, 1982. 22p. Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract Description of a method for measuring the air-change rate in a room by using instruments normally used for exposure measurements (e.g. charcoal detector tubes). Tests and error calculations show that, under favourable circumstances, this integrating instrument method gives a level of accuracy similar to that obtainable when using instruments that have instantaneous data presentation (i.e. continuous measurement using a tracer gas).
