Título Worker exposure to organic vapors at a liquid chemical waste incinerator
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1983, Vol.44, No.4, p.296-300. Illus. 6 ref.
Resumen The incineration unit surveyed employed a rotary kiln and a cyclone furnace (liquid injection) with a common combustion chamber to burn liquid industrial chemical wastes in tank truck quantities. Benzene, butanone, toluene and xylene were selected for monitoring. Personal and area sampling with charcoal tubes followed by gas chromatographic analysis was used for the evaluation. Exposure was well below the action level (50% of TLV) for all compounds tested except benzene (NIOSH standard). The tasks with the highest exposure were the cleaning of pump strainers, benzene distillation in the laboratory and storage tank entry.
