Results of air samples at Fabco Industrial Insulation, Emeryville, California.
NIOSH 1968 Sep:4 pages
Worker exposures to asbestos (1332214) were surveyed in September, 1967, at Fabco Industrial Insulation (SIC-3296) in Emeryville, California. Impinger samples contained 0.4 to 12.2 million particles per cubic foot (mppcf) and membrane filter samples contained 0.0 to 31.3 asbestos fibers greater than 5 microns per cubic centimeter (f/cc). Several samples from the mixing, finishing, packing and hopper rooms contained asbestos concentrations in excess of the 1967 threshold limit value of 5mppcf as measured by impinger sampling or 12.0f/cc as measured by the membrane filter method.
