Abstract
A review is presented of the instruments that can be used or are under development for use in coal mines to measure concentrations of respirable dust. Both the advantages and limitations of the instruments are discussed. The review includes the work being done by the Bureau of Mines to develop instrumentation and improve techniques for dust measurements in mines for both determining compliance with dust standards and evaluating the effectiveness of dust control techniques.
