Title Laboratory validation of a passive length-of-stain dosimeter for hydrogen sulfide
Bibliographic information Aug. 1986, Vol.47, No.8, p.475-481. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract The dosimeter consists of a sealed glass tube containing a length of impregnated paper. To use the dosimeter, one end is broken off and the tube is inserted in a transparent plastic holder which can be attached by a clip to the wearer's clothing, near the breathing zone. The dosimeter covers the concentration range from about 0.5 to 150ppm. Accuracy of the device is well within the NIOSH guideline of ▒25%.
