BS ISO 21438-1. Workplace atmospheres. Determination of inorganic acids by ion chromatography Part 1. Non-volatile acids (sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid)
|Standard number:||21/30415497 DC|
|Status:||Draft for Comment|
This standard 21/30415497 DC BS ISO 21438-1. Workplace atmospheres. Determination of inorganic acids by ion chromatography is classified in these ICS categories:
- 13.040.30 Workplace atmospheres
This part of ISO 21438 specifies a method for the determination of the time-weighted average mass concentration of sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid in workplace air by ion chromatography. The anions are detected by conductivity.
The method is applicable to the personal sampling of airborne particles, as defined in ISO 7708 and to static (area) sampling.
The method is not applicable to the determination of sulfur trioxide.
The procedure does not differentiate between the acids and their corresponding salts if both are present in the air.
The procedure does not differentiate between phosphoric acid and diphosphorus pentoxide (phosphoric anhydride) if both are present in the workplace.
