Category Asbestos Lab Services
Test SUPERFUND EPA 540-R-97-028 (Dust Generation Method) TEM

Superfund Method for the Determination of Releasable Asbestos in Soils and Bulk Material

This method provides results acceptable for risk assessment studies.  Soil and/or bulk material is sieved and then gravimetrically tracked through separation into course and fine fractions,  The fine fraction is tumbled in a sample elutriator and any dust / fibers (asbestos and others) liberated into the air within the tumbler are collected on air cassettes for subsequent TEM analysis (typically using ISO counting rules). 

Sample retention time - 60 days
