NIOSH 0500 (Issue 2)

PARTICULATES NOT OTHERWISE REGULATED, TOTAL

This test method uses a gravimetric (filter weight) method to monitor airborne particulate material. This method is nonspecific and determines the total dust concentration to which a worker is exposed. It may be applied, e.g., to gravimetric determination of fibrous glass in addition to the other ACGIH particulates not otherwise regulated.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Gravimetric
