Large droplets may also coat walls and make surfaces slippery or sticky. In general, these larger particulates do not present the same health hazard as smaller particles. In order to give an accurate estimate of inhalation hazard, the air sampling technique should not collect these size particles. qxd 7/19/04 6:24 PM Page 39 CONTAMINANTS • Fine particles or small droplets that do remain airborne for long periods. Their aerodynamic size is less than 50 mm and usually less than 30 mm. These small particulates are often generated along with the larger particulates, especially in grinding operations.

Dust can also be derived from animal dander, insects, mites, fungal spores, and pollen. Microbials can often be found mixed with dusts, especially those that are organicbased. 01 mm to 30 mm in diameter. Most often dusts are somewhat spherical in shape. Fibers, particles whose length exceeds their width, can be generated from minerals, such as asbestos, and humanmade sources, including fiberglass, if the composition of the material lends itself to disintegration producing such particles. For the purposes of classification, some fibers are assigned a minimum size criterion; for example, asbestos particles must be at least three times longer than they are wide to be considered a fiber for occupational sampling purposes.

Oil mists produced from metal-working fluids during parts machining, as well as mists above electroplating tanks, are examples. Some mists can have a vapor component as well, such as paint spray mists, which contain volatile solvents. When a mist’s droplets evaporate or vapor condensation occurs, the aerosol will contain higher concentrations of very small particles.
