NIOSH 1965 May:2 pages
Air sampling for asbestos (1332214) dust was conducted at the Raybestos Manhattan Friction Company (SIC-3292) in Charleston, South Carolina, during May, 1965. All samples were collected with an impinger and a membrane filter sampler. Breathing zone samples taken with an impinger ranged from unmeasurable to 0.3 million particles per cubic foot. Membrane filter breathing zone samples contained 0.6 to 1.0 fibers greater than 10 microns in length per cubic centimeter (f/cc). Personal air samples collected with the membrane filter contained up to 0.8f/cc. General air samples contained no measurable asbestos dust concentrations.
