Example text

There is some overlap between the chemical analysis techniques used for gases, vapors, and particulate matter, so they are covered together: Gas chromatography (GC) is commonly used for gases, organic vapors such as solvents or alcohols, and some compounds that are solids at room temperature but can be volatized sufficiently at 225°C. 9). As the molecules emerge from the column, a detector measures the amount of each material. On a chromatogram, each emerging compound is represented by a “peak” based on its elution time.

Chemicals for which there is scientifically valid evidence that it is a combustible liquid, a compressed gas, explosive, flammable, an organic peroxide, an oxidizer, pyrophoric, unstable (reactive) or water-reactive. 1. , flammability), health hazard definitions are less precise and more subjective. Health hazards may cause measurable changes in the body, such as decreased pulmonary function. These changes are generally indicated by the Air Monitoring for Toxic Exposures, Second Edition. By Henry J.

If the devices are mounted in stagnant locations, a room fan or other similar method of generating air movement may be required. The major advantage of passive sampling compared to pump-driven monitoring is the simplicity of not having to deal with a pump with the attendant pump calibration, maintenance, and power (battery charging or line power supply) issues. For short-term samples at low contaminant levels the limit of quantification may become an obstacle for some passive devices. The unit cost of passive monitors is greater than the cost of comparable adsorption tubes, but the overall cost (when the pump and people’s time is included) is generally lower for passive sampling.
