Cotton dust levels in textile industry of ahmedabad india

Indian Journal of Industrial Medicine 35(2): 75-80

Cotton dust levels in three old textile mills of Ahmedabad Spinning medium variety of cotton were evaluated. Two parameters of dustiness viz. total dust and dust-less fly concentrations were considered. It was observed that cotton dust levels in all the three mills were far in excess of the recommended threshold limit value for cotton dust. Further, a coefficient of correlation between two above-mentioned parameters of dustiness was computed and it is equal to 0.80 (p<0.01).
