Evaluation of Portable Sulfur Dioxide Meters.
NIOSH 1974 Apr:152 pages
A market survey is conducted to determine the availability of portable, direct-reading sulfur-dioxide meters with a range of 1 to 50ppm of sulfur-dioxide (7446095). The market survey reveals several meters that conform to some of these criteria, but none that conforms to all of these criteria. Manufacturers of the most suitable meters are requested to submit a meter for an evaluation of its physical and performance characteristics. Characteristics measured include stability, drifts, linearity, response times, and specificity. Physical characteristics evaluated include portability, readout, instruction manuals, and ease of zero and span adjustments. As a result of these evaluations, optimum use techniques and performance and construction standards are recommended. Quality control standards for portable sulfur-dioxide meters are also recommended based upon the evaluation results and current industry practices. (Contract No. 99-73-0001, T.O. No. 2)
