Abstract
A coke oven control technology field survey at a fully integrated steel facility (SIC-3312), was performed to determine exposure of workers to coal tar pitch volatiles (CTPV). Area and personal samples were collected for CTPV, and weather data was obtained from a nearby airport weather station. The airflow of the filter and air conditioner units was measured in the lunchroom facility. Coke oven benchmen throwing coal into the oven had a higher exposure when throwing coal over the side of the bench. Wind speed and direction had a major effect on top side CTPV concentrations. The author recommends that area samples must be placed above at least every third coke oven door to effectively measure visible door emissions.
