The purpose of this document is to allow users to determine a sizeweighted fine fraction by the
sedimentation method. The method in this part uses a liquid sedimentation technique to
separate the fine fraction, which is then analysed for its substance of interest, e.g. crystalline
silica.
Informative annexes within this document describe specific methods for the evaluation of FF for
specific bulk materials.
This document is applicable for bulk materials that contain particles in the size r...

The purpose of this document is to allow users to determine the fine fraction with the calculation
method. It also describes the assumptions and preconditions to be met in order for this method
to be valid. This calculation method is applicable only after experiments have shown that the
results are accurate and consistently equal or higher than the results from sedimentation, as
described in Part 2, for that particular bulk material.
For preparation of the sample and determination of crysta...

- second case: the measurand is the concentration of hydrofluoric acid and gaseous fluorides.
Three analytical techniques are proposed: ionometry, spectrophotometry and ion-exchange chromatography.

This European Standard specifies a method for the sampling and analysis of NH3 in ambient air using
diffusive sampling.
It can be used for NH3 measurements at ambient levels but the concentration range and exposure time are sampler dependent and the end user shall use the working conditions for the various devices as recommended by the manufacturer.
Denuders may be used as a surrogate reference method, and for this reason their use is also described in this European Standard.

The method specifies the use of gold-coated, capillary-pore, track-etched membrane filters, through which a known volume of air has been drawn. Using energy-dispersive X-ray analysis, the method can discriminate between fibres with compositions consistent with those of the asbestos varieties (e.g. serpentine and amphibole), gypsum, and other inorganic ...view more
