1. Simple: PID reading x CF = Actual PPM present of chemical.
2. Entry team turn around: Desired reading (e.g. IDLH) on PID ÷ CF = Reading on the PID.
3. Entry team turn around based on desired LEL: Desired reading (e.g. 25% LEL). PLEL% x 10,000 ÷ 25 = 25% LEL in PPM. Use this number and ÷ CF = PID reading PPM for 25% LEL.
4. Predicted PID (1300): 1300 Rule gives predicted PPM ÷ CF = Predicted maximum PID reading.
5. O2 displacement in PPM: 20.9% minus (-) actual reading in % x 5 x 10,000 = PPM.
6. Predicted O2 reading (1300): 1300 Rule gives predicted PPM ÷ 50,000 = % O2 drop from 20.9%.
7. O2 sensor can only measure to 0.1% (1,000 PPM) and is 1/5 of total displacement. 0.1% x 5 = 0.5% (5,000 PPM). Therefore: for every 0.1% drop from 20.9% = 5,000 PPM drop in total air. NOTE: O2 can also be consumed, this would not follow teh rule of 5ths, because the N2 remains.
8. Simple: LEL meter reading x CF = Actual LEL.
9. Entry team turn around: Desired LEL reading (e.g. 25%) ÷ CF = Actual LEL meter reading.
10. PPM conversion: LEL reading x CF x PLEL% ÷ 100 x 10,000 = PPM.
11. Predict LEL reading (1300):1300 Rule gives predicted PPM = (X).
(CF x PLEL x 100) = (Y)
(X) ÷ (Y) = Predicted LEL Reading
This is the perfect webpage for anybody who wishes
to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost
hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that has been written about for decades.
Excellent stuff, just excellent!
Very shortly this web page will be famous among all blog people, due to it’s good articles or reviews
