Spectral Sensing of Asbestos According to Concentration in Various Asbestos Containing Materials
Asbestos in various building materials were measured by spectral sensor to examine the shift in reflectance wavelength according to asbestos concentration in different materials. Asbestos glove, asbestos soil, asbestos fiber insulation board, slate and bamlite panel were tested under several experimental conditions to alter reflectance intensity at each wavelength to find the optimum condition to detect asbestos selectively from other particulate matters. Chrysotile was found to have specific wavelength range regardless of concentration and type of materials as detected under blue color filter and dyed with refractive index liquid.
