Method 1007

Vinyl Chloride

This method is used for the collection and analysis of vinyl chloride.  The sample is collected on a two charcoal tubes in series.  After sampling, separate the primary and backup tubes and cap each for shipment to the lab.  Each tube is desorbed with 1mL of carbon disulfide and analyzed by GC/FID (flame ionization detector). 

The working range of the method is 0.4 to 40 mg/m³ (0.16 to 16 ppm) for a 5 L air sample.

Note: This method is a revision of P&CAM 178.
