Abstract
In the past 4 yr, the Bureau of Mines, in cooperation with the University of Minnesota's particle technology laboratory, has studied the use of size-selective sampling techniques to measure the mass concentration of diesel aerosol in underground coal mines. Results from these studies have been used to develop design and performance criteria for a personal diesel exhaust aerosol sampler for use in underground coal mines. These criteria are based on the premise that size-selective sampling techniques can be used to separate diesel-exhaust aerosol, which is predominantly submicrometer in size, from coal dust aerosol, which is mostly greater than 1 um in size. In addition to the performance criteria, this paper discusses the laboratory and field-test data used to develop the criteria.
