Title A multipurpose industrial hygiene controlled atmosphere testing chamber
Bibliographic information June 1993, Vol.54, No.6, p.313-319. Illus. 17 ref.
Abstract A multipurpose stainless-steel controlled-atmosphere exposure chamber was designed and constructed. The chamber can be used for simultaneous exposure tests involving different types of active and passive industrial hygiene monitors. The test contaminant concentration levels can be varied from low parts per billion (ppb) to high parts per million (ppm). Two application examples that used the newly designed exposure chamber are presented. The first example compares two methods for determining 1,3-butadiene concentrations. These methods were National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Method 1501 and a thermal desorption method using passive dosimeters. The second example illustrated an evaluation of the limit of detection and the limit of quantitation for benzene monitoring with charcoal tubes and dosimeter badges.
