Electronic (digital download/no shipping)

Member - $20.00
NonMember - $25.00


This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. It presents useful information to help those interested in gas and vapor detection begin the evaluation process to select direct-reading gas and vapor instrumentation that will suit their specific needs. Direct-reading instrumentation provides on-site indication of the contaminant(s) of interest, which are determined by nonspecific and/or chemispecific detectors. The operational, physical, and performance characteristics of direct-reading instruments are also described. A general definition of the instrumentation, an explanation of the principle of detection, and a brief discussion of instrument application, including capabilities, restrictions, and limitations is provided.
