The performance of two types of radiello diffusive samplers, filled with a thermally desorbable adsorbent (graphitised carbon Carbograph 4) and with a solvent desorbable adsorbent (activated charcoal), respectively, have been evaluated for the monitoring of BTEX in ambient air, by comparison with active (pumped) samplers. A two year survey was carried out in Padua, a medium-sized town, in a traffic site, close to a busy crossroad. The concentrations of BTEX were measured for 15 campaigns… CONTINUE READING
