Title Studies on the evaluation method of respiratory exposure to pesticide spray
Bibliographic information Mar. 1982, Vol.30, No.6, p.1034-1041. Illus. 16 ref.
Abstract A measuring system in which filter pads are combined with an individual respirator was used to evaluate exposure to pesticide mists and dusts during crop spraying. The filter had high collection efficiency in the range of simulated air flow, inhalation time, and concentration in air tested. The filter pad system gave results in good agreement with those obtained using an impinger system in both laboratory and field tests.
