Abstract
A walk-through industrial hygiene survey of the wet chemical operation was conducted at CF Chemicals, Inc., Bartow, Florida, on May 17, 1976, as part of an industry-wide study of the phosphate fertilizer industry (SIC-2874). Potential health hazards include sulfur-dioxide (7446095), sulfuric-acid (7664939) mist, phosphoric- acid (7664382), ammonia (7664417) gas, radon (10043922) daughters, and fluoride (16984488). These potential hazards exist under upset conditions. Potential exposure to dusts and radon daughters at the rock handling area is the only one where routine exposure could be expected.
