NIOSH 0600

PARTICULATES NOT OTHERWISE REGULATED, RESPIRABLE

The method measures the mass concentration of any non-volatile respirable dust. In addition to inert dusts, the method has been recommended for respirable coal dust. The method is biased in light of the recently adopted international definition of respirable dust, e.g., ≈ +7% bias for non-diesel, coal mine dust.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Gravimetric
