Ambient air sampling of the facility was conducted using a Lumex RA-915+ mercury vapor analyzer
(Ohio Lumex Co., Inc.).
Using the P195 Plus Mercury Vapor Analyzer
, the study allegedly determined that most of the schools exceeded acceptable mercury levels set by the United States Department of Health's ATSDR (Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry).
The study measured mercury vapor concentrations from identified sources such as equipment or facilities used in amalgam procedures, storage and immediate disposal sites, among others, using a Lumex RA-915+ Mercury Vapor Analyzer
The calibration of the monitor was confirmed using a Jerome 431-X mercury vapor analyzer
(Arizona Instrument LLC, Chandler, AZ), which was certified by an independent testing laboratory.
The Jerome 471 ultra low-level mercury vapor analyzer
provides an alternative for detecting, measuring and reporting levels of mercury vapor for environmental and residential spill and clean-up levels assessment.
An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) response team used a mercury vapor analyzer
to determine mercury vapor levels at the residence from which the mercury was taken and at the three schools where the children were dropped off.
A screening environmental investigation on 27 July with a Jerome mercury vapor analyzer
(MVA) measured 27 [micro]g/[m.sup.3] at the front door, 54 [micro]g/[m.sup.3] at the kitchen entrance, and 78 [micro]g/[m.sup.3] on the staircase leading to the basement.
Its seven-pound, portable Jerome 431-X Mercury Vapor Analyzer
is used predominantly for environmental applications such as spill response, field screening, and mercury surveys, according to Linda Eppinger, product manager for AI's mercury analyzers.
Airborne concentrations after large spills are mapped with a mercury vapor analyzer
Data from these analyses suggest that 1) blood samples are more sufficiently acquired and can be used to evaluate recent acute exposure and 2) use of a real-time mercury vapor analyzer
can help public health officials determine the magnitude of exposures and help prevent reexposures.
The mercury vapor concentration within a chamber was monitored continuously by a continuous mercury vapor analyzer
dual-beam ultraviolet photometer in standard flow configuration (model 791.741; EPM Environmental Products Manufacturing, Dalerstraat, the Netherlands), which was capable of measuring concentrations from 2 to 1,999 [micro]g/[m.sup.3] in air.
Examination of the house using a mercury vapor analyzer
detected indoor air mercury concentrations of 10-40 [mu]g/m[.sup.3].
