NIOSH 1976 Feb; :1-62
Five commercially available, portable, direct reading meters for the measurement of mercury (7439976) vapors were evaluated. The meters were selected on the basis of weight, size, power source, specificity, and their direct detection capabilities. Physical characteristics were also documented. The range of detection for the meters was approximately 0.01 of mercury to 0.1 milligrams per cubic meter. Suggested performance criteria and design guidelines for portable mercury vapor monitoring devices are presented.
