Do you need guidelines for choosing a substitute organic solvent that is safer to use? Do you need an effective, cheap but perhaps temporary way to reduce exposures before you can convince your employer to spend money on a long-term or more reliable solution? Do you need information about local exhaust ventilation or personal protective equipment like respirators and gloves? Industrial Hygiene Control of Airborne Chemical Hazards provides the answers to these questions and more. Science-based and quantitative, the book introduces methods for controlling exposures in diverse settings, focusing squarely on airborne chemical hazards. It bridges the gap between existing knowledge of physical principles and their modern application with a wealth of recommendations, techniques, and tools accumulated by generations of IH practitioners to control chemical hazards. Provides a unique, comprehensive tool for facing the challenges of controlling chemical hazards in the workplace. Although William Popendorf has written the book at a fundamental level, he assumes the reader has some experience in science and math, as well as in manufacturing or other work settings with chemical hazards, but is inexperienced in the selection, design, implementation, or management of chemical exposure control systems. Where the book is quantitative, of course there are lots of formulae, but in general the author avoids vague notation and long derivations.Thus, in a practical sense, the mass of air within a building does not change.a 1a„ 2mass flow rate of air in 2 1a„2mass flow ... the ACGIH Ventilation Manual are written primarily using English units where the density is weight density [rw] ( although ... air moved per minuteAž Ap AddensityAž Ad11:4aAž 1a„4 QAdft3=minAž Aprw Adlb= ft3Až Ad11:4bAž 1a„4 AdareaAž Ap AdvelocityAž AprwAdlb=ft3Až ... it passes out at some other defined portal (a€œ2a€ or at many portals if the walls have doors and windows or the duct leaks, anbsp;...
