Abstract
A survey to determine exposure to selected polynuclear-aromatic- hydrocarbons (PAH) was conducted at Reynolds Aluminum Company (SIC- 3334), Primary Metals Division in Longview, Washington on August 28 to 30, 1978. A total of 1030 production employees were located at the north and south facilities. Personal breathing zone and area samples were taken to determine exposure to the benzene soluble fractions of total particulates and total vapors, nuisance dust, and chrysene (218019), pyrene (129000), fluoranthene (206440), benz(a)anthracene (56553), and benzo(a)pyrene (50328) in both particulate and vapor forms. Particulates in samples for total particulates, chrysene, pyrene, fluoranthene, benz(a)anthracene, and benzo(a)pyrene ranged from less than 0.04 to 0.83 milligrams per cubic meter, and less than 0.35 to 9.40, less than 0.28 to about less than 3.5, less than 0.06 to 0.88, less than 0.20 to 5.20, and facilities. Corresponding concentration ranges detected in vapor form were 0.06 to 0.21 milligrams per cubic meter and less than 0.14 to 1.30, less than 0.36 to 6.90, 1.40 to 12.00, less than 0.13 to 1.20, and less than 0.10 to 1.50 micrograms per cubic meter, respectively. Total nuisance dust and respirable dust concentrations ranged from 1.33 to 5.86 and 0.15 to 5.11 milligrams per cubic meter, respectively.
