TOTAL PARTICLE, SULFATE, AND ACIDIC AEROSOL EMISSIONS FROM KEROSENE SPACE HEATERS
Leaderer, B, P Boone, AND K. Hammond. TOTAL PARTICLE, SULFATE, AND ACIDIC AEROSOL EMISSIONS FROM KEROSENE SPACE HEATERS. ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY 24(6):908-912, (1990).
Chamber studies were conducted on four unvented kerosene space heaters to assess emissions of total particle, sulfate, and acidic aerosol. The heaters tested represented four burner designs currently in use by the public. Kerosene space heaters are a potential source of fine particles (52.5-pm diameter), sulfate, and acidic aerosol indoors. Fine particle concentrations in homes in which the heaters are used may be increased in excess of 20 pg/m3 over background levels. Sulfate and acidic aerosol levels in such homes could exceed average and peak outdoor concentrations. Maltuned heaters could produce exceptionally high levels of all air contaminants measured.
