Specimen Preparation and Sizing by Image Analysis of Respirable Quartz Particles Collected on Coal Mine Air-monitoring Filters.
Proc 18th Ann Mtg Microbeam Anal Soc of Am Phoenix Arizona 1983 Aug; :22-26
Several quartz standards and respirable coal mine dust samples containing significant amounts of quartz were used to develop a method of quartz particle-size determination by image analysis. Data on the quartz particle size are crucial for the accurate determination of quartz in respirable coal mine dusts collected on air-monitoring filters by MSHA. In this study, three pure ground quartz materials were chosen for particle-size distribution measurements: minusil -5, minusil -10, and silver bond b.
