Monitoring Methods used by OSHA

Primary Laboratory Sampling/Analytical Method (SLC1):
  • sampling media: Midget Fritted Glass Bubbler (MFGB) containing 15 mL 0.01 N+ KOH
    maximum volume: 480 Liters   
    maximum flow rate: 1.0 L/min
    current analytical method: Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy; AAS/GF
    method reference: 2 (OSHA In-house file)
    method classification: Not Validated
    note: Submit as a separate sample. Analysis is performed for total Silicon and reported as the compound. Samples should be stored and shipped in plastic as soon after sampling as possible. Keep blank solution in MFGB for the same time period as samples.
