Preliminary Studies of Scavenging Systems Related to Radioactive Fallout. Letter Report No. 7 Covering Period April 1 to May 31, 1959

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Progress is reported on the development of a cyclone which will remove particles larger than 8 microns. A method is proposed for a more efficient separation of particles by increasing the number of size separation filters in the sampling train. Preliminary tests with submicron polystyrene particles are being conducted. Numerous methods have been tried for counting the particles in a water droplet of the polystyrene aerosol. The criteria for a satisfactory method of counting particles are discussed. A proposed method to accomplish this is to use carbon-14 labeled polystyrene hydrosols. (For preceding period see ARF-3127-6.) (B.O.G.)
