OSHA 206


This method describes the collection and analysis of airborne metal and metalloid particulates from solder operations in industry. Time Weighted Average (TWA) air samples are collected using personal sampling pumps and mixed-cellulose ester (MCE) filters. Analysis is by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES). Bulk and wipe samples can also be collected and analyzed by this method. Wear impermeable gloves when taking wipe or bulk samples. This method is applicable to any simultaneous spectrometer.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Inductively Coupled Plasma ICP-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy AES
