  • 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 ...

  • A high-performance aerosol concentrator for biological agent detection

    Introduction Particle sampling from ambient air is a well-developed technology described in many texts (e.g., Vincent 1989; Willeke and Baron 1993; Hinds 1999). However, there are many cases in which the concentration of airborne particles is so low that it becomes necessary to sample for extended periods of time to collect enough mass for chemical or biological characterization of the ...

  • Indoor-outdoor relationship of suspended particulate matter and its chemical composition at different sizes

    The indoor-outdoor concentration relationship of particulate matter PM9.0 (aerodynamic diameter 9 µm or smaller) and its chemical composition (sulfate, nitrate, chloride and ammonium) has been studied. Samples were collected using four identical Anderson impactors, each one collecting nine size ranges by eight impactor stages (9, 5.8, 4.7, 3.3, 2.1, 1.1, 0.65 and 0.43 µm) plus a back-up ...

  • Field Test Experiments to Validate The CEN Standard Measurement Method For PM2,5

    For air quality across the European Union to be assessed on a consistent basis, Member States need to employ standard measurement techniques and procedures, following Community Directive 96/62/EC on ambient air quality assessment and management [1], and Directive 1999/30/EC (1st EC Air Quality Daughter Directive) [2], which sets the parameters specific to the assessment of particulate matter (and ...

  • 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 ...
