Title A sequential tape monitor for toluene diisocyanate
Bibliographic information June 1987, Vol.48, No.6, p.574-579. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract An electronic microcircuit controller was designed to convert a commercial continuous tape monitor for toluene diisocyanate (TDI) into a sequential sampler in order to eliminate deficiencies in response and resolution of fluctuating TDI concentrations. The modified monitor will collect up to fourteen 12-min samples per work shift. The sensitivity of the monitor was approximately doubled, but individual instrument calibrations are necessary. The modified monitor has a reliability rate of about 90%.
