Monitoring Methods used by OSHA

Primary Laboratory Sampling/Analytical Method (SLC1):

  • sampling media: Tared Low Ash Polyvinyl Chloride (LAPVC) filter 5 microns
    maximum volume: 960 Liters
    maximum flow rate: 2.0 L/min
    current analytical method: Gravimetric
    method reference: 11, 12
    sampling and analytical error: 0.10
    method classification: Fully Validated
    note: Field method, do not submit sample to the Salt Lake Technical Center. Standard is + for inert dust; noncompliance can be based on gross weight without analysis. If the filter is not overloaded, samples may be collected up to an 8-hour period.
