Title Passive colorimetric dosimeter tubes for ammonia, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide
Bibliographic information July 1985, Vol.46, No.7, p.357-362. Illus. 64 ref.
Abstract These colorimetric stain length personal dosimeters, known by the trade name Vapor Guard, have been developed by the Mine Safety Appliances Company, Pittsburgh, PA 15208, USA. Calibration tests indicate that the tubes are accurate to ▒25% and that temperature (5-40░C) and relative humidity (20-90%) do not significantly affect the results.
