This paper provides guidance on the equipment and calibration requirements for air sampling pumps.
This Technical Paper was prepared to give guidance on the equipment and calibration requirements for air sampling pumps. The pumps are primarily used to collect various contaminants to determine airborne concentrations of those contaminants.
The portable, battery operated pumps may be placed on a worker (i.e. in the breathing zone) to estimate worker exposure, or in a static (i.e. fixed location) to determine airborne concentrations in strategic locations. The results of the air sampling may be used for risk assessments and determining compliance against the workplace exposure standards (WES).
