NIOSH Analytical Method, Zinc Oxide Fume, S316, (Set 3).
NIOSH 1977 Nov:9 pages
The method is described for determining zinc-oxide (1314132) fume in the air, including the principle, range and sensitivity, interferences, precision and accuracy, advantages and disadvantages, apparatus, reagents, calibration and standards, and calculations. The principle is based upon measuring the X-ray diffraction peak intensity of zinc-oxide at 31.75 degrees centigrade from a sample filtered by a copolymer of polyvinylchloride and acrylonitrile. The range is 2.4-9.9 milligrams per cubic meter with a precision of milligrams per cubic meter.
