Size-Selective Samplers for Respirable Dust Sampling – Guidance Information
This Technical Paper was prepared to provide guidance on choosing sampling equipment for respirable dust sampling. The need for this Paper became apparent due to questions raised by occupational hygienists regarding the validity of a number of size-selective cyclones in common use that may not meet the required respirable dust size-selective criteria required by various Standards.
This situation presents problems whereby respirable dust sampling results obtained may underestimate or overestimate the actual concentration, with either alternative being unacceptable for occupational hygienists.
It is envisaged that this Technical Paper will be updated when further information regarding the performance of respirable dust sampling cyclones becomes available.
