Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The dusting behaviour of the test material was investigated using DIN EN 17199 -3: 2019 -12 "workplace exposure - measurement of dustiness of bulk materials that contain or release respirable nano objects and their aggregates and agglomerates or other respirable particles- Part 3: Copntinuous drop method".

The dust released by the falling test material was measured by a scanning mobility particle sizer (SMPS, 10 - 417 nm) and an optical particle sizer (3 - 10 µm). The counterflow was provided by cleaned, almost particle-free air.

The SMPS counted 84551.49 particles per cm3 (in the nanoscale (10 - 100 m) 22109,11 particles per cm3) corresponding to a dustiness index of 980575.22 particles per mg (in the nanoscale (10 - 100 nm) 256407.61 particles per mg). The mean size of the nanoparticles was 73.04 nm, the mean size of particles in the range 10 - 417 nm was 139.91 nm.

The OPS (0.3 - 10 µm) counted 229.07 particles per cm3 corresponding to a dustiness index of 2656.55 particles per mg. The mean size of the particles was 4.15 µm.
