Crystalline Respirable Silica

Crystalline silica control
Analitica implements mineralogical analyses by X-Ray Diffraction to identify and quantify crystalline silica dust (quartz and cristobalite) on filter after outdoor and/or indoor environmental sampling.

International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has established silica crystalline dust has cancerous effects on human health. The Value Limit of Exposition (VLE) for the workers based on the Time Weighted Average (TWA) is 0.025 mg/m3 of fraction respirable of quartz or cristobalite.

Analitica performs the evaluation of crystalline respirable silica in massive and rock samples after the method SWFF (Size weigheted fine fraction) as indicated by IMA (Industrial Mineral Association).
The identification and quantification of  the respirable fraction of crystalline silica dust is of primary importance in mining industry of silica minerals containing raw materials, cement and ceramics production, foundry, glass industry, etc.

Analitica laboratory has implemented calibration curves, based on Standard Reference Materials, able to quantify up to 0.005 mg of  respirable crystalline quartz or cristobalite on each kind filter media (silver, PVC, MCE).
