Abstract
Environmental air sampling for asbestos (1332214) was conducted by the North Carolina State Board of Health at Scandura, Incorporated (SIC-3292), in Charlotte, North Carolina during April, 1964. Sampling was performed using an impinger and a membrane filter sampler. Breathing zone samples taken with the impinger contained up to 1.4 million particles per cubic foot (mppcf) at the change hand work site, and general air samples contained 0.2 to 0.3mppcf. Membrane filter samples for breathing zones contained up to 9.1 fibers greater than 5 microns in length per cubic centimeter (f/cc). Membrane filter air sample asbestos concentrations ranged from 0.1 to 7.1f/cc.
