Standard Practice for Collection by Filtration and Determination of Mass, Number, and Optical Sizing of Atmospheric Particulates
|Publication Date:||1 January 1965|
This recommended practice covers the sample collection of particulate matter from an atmosphere by filtration and for measurement of mass amount, particle size, and particle size distribution of the collected material. Variations in the recommended practice permit sampling to meet a number of widely different assay needs. Although especially applicable to collection of solid particles, the filter method may be used also to collect liquid particles if droplet size need not be determined.
