Standard Practice for Collection of Settled Dust Samples Using Dry Wipe Sampling Methods for Subsequent determination of Beryllium and Compounds
|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
|ICS Code (Stationary source emissions):||13.040.40|
This practice covers the collection of settled dust containing beryllium and/or beryllium compounds on surfaces using the dry wipe sampling method. These samples are collected in a manner that will permit subsequent extraction and determination of beryllium and compounds in the wipes using laboratory analysis techniques such as atomic spectrometry or fluorescence detection.
This practice is limited in its scope to applications where wetted wipe sampling (using Practice D 6966) or vacuum sampling (using Practice D 7144) is not physically feasible (for example, if the surface to be wiped would be compromised by use of wetted wipes).
This practice does not address the sampling design criteria (that is, sampling plan which includes the number and location of samples) that are used for clearance, hazard evaluation, risk assessment, and other purposes. To provide for valid conclusions, sufficient numbers of samples should be obtained as directed by a sampling plan.
This practice contains notes that are explanatory and are not part of the mandatory requirements of this practice.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
