Abstract
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate a method for monitoring protein bearing and total dust concentration and size distribution parameters in grain elevator atmospheres and to compare these parameters with those found under ambient conditions. A collection was made of samples from four grain elevator sites and one outside control area over a 5 week period. The percent of the dust distribution composed of protein bearing particles was markedly higher at the elevator sites than at the control sites as was the concentration of both protein bearing and total particles. Differences in the parameters of geometric mean diameter, geometric standard deviation, and percent respirable dust between the elevator sites and the control sites were of minimal significance.
