Portable devices for measuring air contamination on aircraft
The Scope of this standard covers portable equipment to sample selected airborne contaminants, as defined in this document. Data must be captured and stored for later use. Data can be analytical data or realtime data.
The target audience of this standard is designers of air sampling/analytical devices.
Rationale: To aid designers in creating air sampling/analytical devices that will:
•Provide objective sampling data from Aircraft as defined in this document, with sufficient sensitivity and specificity, to improve the end-user’s ablity to distinguish between cabin and/or cockpit conditions that require maintenance intervention and conditions that do not;
•Enable the end-user to create a database of the level(s) of those selected airborne contaminants in the cabin and/or cockpit.
