NIOSH 5026 (Issue 2)


This method uses infrared spectrophotometry to monitor mineral oil. This method is applicable to all trichlorofluoroethane-soluble mineral oil mists, but not to (nor does OSHA’s standard cover) semi-synthetic or synthetic cutting fluids. This revises P&CAM 283. P&CAM 159 and S272 use similar samplers with measurement by fluorescence spectrophotometry. Carbon tetrachloride is a suspected human carcinogen. Handle in a fume hood.

Analysis Type (Application Method): IR
