Abstract

The use of preconditioned control filters as relative humidity correction method for total suspended particulate (TSP) mass collected on a glass-fiber hi-vol filter was investigated. The results showed that there was a difference in particulate concentrations calculated in each TSP filters with or without using the control filters, but the difference was insignificant (α=0.01). The difference was mainly due to the hygroscopic nature of the TSP samples rather than the filters. The study suggests that the effect of relative humidity (r.h) on glass-fiber filter can be neglected as long as the filters are equilibrated at least than or equal to 50% r.h before and after the sampling events.
