Abstract As part of a larger study of exposures in the phosphate industry, a survey was conducted at CF Chemicals, Inc., located in Bartow, Florida. At the facility there were eight major sections monitored: sulfuric-acid facility, phosphorus-acid facility, acidulation facility, three diammonium-phosphate facilities, two product storage areas, two shipping areas, operations and staff office, and quality control laboratory. The major products were diammonium-phosphate and dicalcium-phosphate. Periodic sampling was performed for sulfur-dioxide (7446095), noise levels, ammonia (7664417), and fluoride. The ventilation systems were designed primarily for emission control and appeared to be adequate. With the exception of two samples for fluorides and three samples of chromium (7440473), the emissions were within the levels recommended. The authors recommend the use of tank entry procedures and personal protective equipment.
