Título Development of improved respirator cartridge and canister test methods.
Información bibliográfica DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No.77-209, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, USA, July 1977. 70p. Illus. 27 ref.
Resumen A literature survey of adsorption capacity data for charcoal (equations of Bohart-Adams, Mecklenburg, Klotz, Danby, Sillén, Wheeler, van Dongen, Nelson; effects of moisture; solvent mixtures), is followed by a summary of laboratory tests conducted under this project, which consists of a proposed test method for organic vapour respirator sorbents. Recommendations are made for further research required to complete development of an improved test method for organic vapour respirator sorbents. An improved cartridge certification programme is proposed, based on estimated service lives of reusable cartridges against 80 selected organic vapours (presented in tabular form). The detailed test procedure is appended.
