Ease of Operations Greatest sources of error are how the operator judges the stain’s end point and the ±25% crosssensitivity of the instrument. Measures the percentage of O2. The meter uses an electrochemical sensor to measure the partial pressure of O2 in the air and converts that reading to an O2 concentration. Must be calibrated prior to use to compensate for altitude and barometric pressure. Certain gases, especially oxidants, can affect readings. Carbon dioxide poisons the detector cell. Essentially instantaneous Check for leaks.

They are not a substitute for industrial hygiene sampling during site entry. • The measurements are relative to specific chemicals. • Generally, the instruments are not designed to measure and/or detect low (minute) airborne concentrations. • Many of the direct-reading instruments that have DIRECT-READING INSTRUMENTS been designed to detect one particular substance also detect other substances (cross-sensitivity), so they can give false readings. Direct-reading instruments were developed as early warning devices for use in industrial settings where a leak or an accident could release a high concentration of a known chemical into the ambient atmosphere.

GC/NPD = gas chromatography and nitrogen-phosphorus detector; PCM = phase contrast microscopy; ICP-AES = inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry; GC/MS = gas chromatography and mass spectrometry; GC-HECD = gas chromatography using a Hall electrical conductivity detector; GF = glass fiber; PCB = polychlorinated biphenyls. subsequently reanalyzed in sophisticated fixed-base laboratories. The mobile laboratory also provides storage space, countertop staging areas for industrial hygiene equipment, and facilities for recharging self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBAs).
