Summary

Metal-working fluid aerosols and vapour can be sampled with the combined inhalable aerosol vapour sampler (GGP) [1]. The aerosols are collected on a glass fibre filter and the vapour on a cartridge filter with XAD-2 adsorber resin.

Elution is carried out with tetrachloroethylene or with 1,1,2-trichlorotrifluoroethane. After filtration the analysis solutions are analysed by measuring the integral extinction in the infrared wave number range 3000 – 2800 cm−1
