Abstract Asbestos (1332214) exposures at the Raybestos-Manhattan Company in Manheim, Pennsylvania, were surveyed by the United States Public Health Service during December, 1970. Only fiber sizes greater than 5 microns were counted. Atmospheric fiber concentrations produced during textile operations ranged from 0.2 fibers per cubic centimeter (f/cc) near the yarn collector to 16.2f/cc near the wheelabrator operator. Friction operations produced asbestos fiber concentrations up to 14.2f/cc near one drill press operator. Fiber concentrations in the air near packing operations ranged from 0.1 to 18.9f/cc.
