||X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy has been used to analyze trace element concentrations in cotton dusts collected on verticle elutriator filter media. Twenty-three samples collected from ten bales of cotton processed in a model card room have been analyzed. The major elements in the dust detected by the XRF technique are Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn and Ba. The XRF method has been shown to give reproducible results and may be used to show differences between airborne dusts in a card room. Similar analyses are reported of cotton dusts collected on areal sample.
