Monitoring Methods used by OSHA

Primary Laboratory Sampling/Analytical Method (SLC1):
  • Midget Fritted Glass Bubbler containing 10 mL 0.1 N NaOH
  • maximum volume: 480 Liters
  • maximum flow rate: 2.0 L/min (TWA)
  • maximum volume: 30 Liters
  • maximum flow rate: 2.0 L/min (STEL)
  • current analytical method: Ion Specific Electrode; ISE
  • method reference: 2 (OSHA In-House File)
  • method classification: Not Validated
  • note: Submit as a separate sample; analyte hydrolyzes instantly to fluoride in water. Analysis is for total F-. Proposed method + follows OSHA method ID-110.
