Method ID-104

Sulfur dioxide by IC

This method describes the collection and analysis of airborne sulfur dioxide using midget-fritted glass bubblers (MFGBs) in the workplace. It is applicable for both short-term (STEL) and time weighted average (TWA) exposure evaluations. A calibrated personal sampling pump is used to draw a known volume of air through a midget-fritted glass bubbler containing 10 to 15 mL of 0.3 N hydrogen peroxide. Samples are directly analyzed with no sample preparation by ion chromatography as total sulfate.
