  • Long term reductions in airborne heavy metals

    Since many heavy metals, including lead and iron, can be harmful to human health at high concentrations, their atmospheric levels are monitored. The UK Heavy Metals Monitoring Network has been monitoring ambient metals for 25 years, and during that time there has been a steady reduction in the levels of most metals in the air - with a few important exceptions. Airborne metals are produced by the ...

  • ASTM D4185 - 06(2011) standard practice for measurement of metals in workplace atmospheres by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry

    The health of workers in many industries is at risk through exposure by inhalation to toxic metals. Industrial hygienists and other public health professionals need to determine the effectiveness of measures taken to control workers' exposures, and this is generally achieved by making workplace air measurements. Exposure to some metal-containing particles has been demonstrated to cause ...

  • Questions and Answers on the new European air quality directive

     Questions and Answers on the new directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe 1) What is the issue? Air pollution is caused by the emission to the atmosphere of certain substances which, alone or through chemical reaction, can damage human health and/or the environment. Air pollution is both a local and a transboundary problem as emissions from one country can travel large ...

  • ASTM G91 - 11 Standard Practice for Monitoring Atmospheric SO2 Deposition Rate for Atmospheric Corrosivity Evaluation

    Atmospheric corrosion of metallic materials is a function of many weather and atmospheric variables. The effect of specific corrodants, such as sulfur dioxide, can accelerate the atmospheric corrosion of metals significantly. The sulfation plate method provides a simple technique to ...
