Abstract
The training manual for the course Gas, Vapor, and Particulate Sampling, developed for the Division of Training and Manpower Development, NIOSH, is presented. The purpose of the course is to provide students with information on the routine sampling of gases, vapors, and particulates, and measurement techniques. The course consists of lectures and laboratory work. The lecture topics include: use, interpretation, and misuse of threshold limits; obtaining valid representative air samples; measurement of gases, gas vapor, and particulate sampling; dusts; detector tube use; a problem set on determining noncompliance based on considerations of air sampling data; oxygen deficiency and combustible gas meters; preparing controlled gas and vapor concentration, calibration of a combustible gas meter; and the legal aspects of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The laboratory work includes calibrating and testing detector tubes and pumps, making air flow measurements with a critical orifice meter and a rotameter, and calibrating and testing a combustible gas meter with ethanol.
