Abstract
Three passive monitors; the 3M Brand Mercury Vapor Monitor, the Solid State Sensors Mercury Monitor, and the Sipin Environmetrics Mercury Dosimeter Badge that measure worker exposure to mercury vapor are described along with their specifications, collection capabilities, concentration range, precision, cost, and performance analyses. The gold substrate utilized by both the 3M and Solid State Sensor Monitors is discussed in relation to chlorine gas interference. The author concludes that through extensive testing, the 3M Monitor is accurate, precise, and free of interference. Although it has little performance data, the Solid State Sensors Monitor has an acceptable precision and accuracy and the Sipin Badge has 10 percent accuracy and precision.
