The NIOSH charcoal tube and other solid sorbent sampling tube certification program.
McCammon CS Jr.
Am Ind Hyg Assoc J 1976 Aug; 37(8):489-491
A general outline is presented of the proposed certification regulations for solid sorbent sampling tubes. The planned certification design specifications for the charcoal tube are described in detail. Since there are instances where a charcoal tube with more capacity than the one described may be needed in industrial hygiene applications, provisions are planned to certify classes of charcoal tubes. Other solid sorbent sampling tubes are planned to be certified in the future once specific design and performance specifications can be developed for a sampling tube that has proven itself through laboratory and field use.
