Abstract
Air sampling for asbestos (1332214) dust was conducted by the United States Public Health Service at the Raybestos Manhattan Asbestos Textile Company (SIC-3292) in Charleston, South Carolina, during January, 1971. Airborne concentrations of fibers greater than 5 microns in length per cubic centimeter (f/cc) ranged from 0.1 to 40.9f/cc. Average exposures in the mule spinning, ring spinning, spin doffing, dry twisting, winding, spool winding, winder fixing, and tape weaving areas exceeded the emergency temporary standard for asbestos dust of 5 fibers per milliliter greater than 5 microns in length for an 8 hour time weighted exposure. Forty five samples exceeded the 15 minute concentration limit of 10 fibers per milliliter.
