Abstract
Worker exposures to asbestos (1332214) were surveyed at the H. K. Porter Company in Huntington, Indiana, in November, 1966. Sampling was performed using impinger and membrane filter methods. Breathing ranged from 0.4 to 19.5 million particles per cubic foot (mppcf). General air samples collected with the impinger contained 0.1 to 2.7mppcf. Membrane filter samples with fibers greater than 5 microns in length for breathing zone areas ranged from 0.8 to 28.5 fibers per cubic centimeter (f/cc), while membrane filter general area samples contained 1.8 to 9.0f/cc. Personal air samples contained up to 27.4f/cc. The threshold limit value of 5mppcf as measured by the impinger method was exceeded in a few areas of the facility.
