This report contains the results of personal exposure and area sampling for airborne solvent vapors conducted at a small printing establishment during two visits in May 1995. Also included are the sampling methods, the exposure standards, ventilation flow measurements, and some recommendations for follow-up work. Between the visits, a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) containing an air-to-air heat exchanger (United Air Specialists, Inc, Cincinnati, OH) was installed to remove stale air and supply fresh dilution air to the two press rooms. The sampling data provided a basis for evaluating the effectiveness of the HRV in reducing personal exposure levels to the airborne solvent vapors.
