  • Performance characterization of the MiniVol PM2.5 Sampler case study

    Measurements were conducted to assess the MiniVol PM2.5 sampler performance for various particle preseparator configurations including flat and cup impaction stages. Laboratory measurements were conducted to determine the impactor collection efficiency as a function of paricle size. Impactor cut points - the aerodynamic particle diameter exhibiting 50% collection efficiency - were 2.5 um (+- 10%) ...

  • Measurement of Particle-Bound Reactive Oxygen Species in Rubidoux Aerosols

    The diurnal variations in the concentrations of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in various size fractions were determined for ambient particles in Rubidoux, CA. Sampling of particles was conducted at 3 h intervals using a cascade impactor. The collected particles were reacted with dichlorofluorescin (DCFH), a non-fluorescent probe that fluoresces when oxidized. The factors affecting the diurnal ...

  • Apply appropriate models in the study of dry deposition fluxes of particulate matter and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Tsukuba, Japan

    In this study, plates for downward flux and upward flux were used to measure atmospheric dry deposition fluxes for particulate mass and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in TERC (Tsukuba), Japan. Ambient particles concentrations were also collected using a high-volume air sampler, and ambient particle size distributions between 0.01 μm and 13.1 μm were measured using a low-pressure cascade ...

  • Controlling Dust and Bioaerosols at a Biosolids Composting Faclity

    Studies at enclosed Longmont, Colorado project evaluate exposure level of employees. Operational changes reduce dust, endotoxin and A. Fumigatus by 90 percent. WHEN dealing with public health issues and composting, attention has been predominantly focused on potential exposure from the release of Aspergillus fumigatus (A. fumigatus) from composting facilities. Numerous studies were conducted to ...
