Experiences with five dust-measuring methods for pig housing

Experiences with five dust-measuring methods for pig housing

Tierarztliche Umschau 43(10): 657-660, 663-664

Method 1 involved the filtration of air through a membrane with gravimetrical evaluation. Method 2 was with an instrument that employs absorption of rays. Method 3 used a pre-separator, which measures particles of dust with a diameter of less than 5 micro m. Method 4 employed the Tyndall effect and measured the mass of particles less than 8 micro m, and method 5 the six-stage Anderson sampler, using the principle of impaction.
