Abstract Four respirator particulate filters were evaluated. Penetration of monodisperse-dioctyl-phthalate (117817) (MDOP), silica (7631869), dust, lead (7439921) fumes, and sodium-chloride (7647145) (NaCl) aerosol was measured by light scattering and propane flame photometry. The effects of humidity and charge on NaCl penetration was also studied. The authors conclude detection might improve with a more sophisticated system using hydrogen flame, instead of propane flame photometry, and more refined electronic equipment.
