SubjectThe practice measures the volatile organic compounds (VOCs), excluding formaldehyde, emitted from manufactured wood-based panels. An pre-screening analysis is used to identify the VOCs released by a wood-based panel product. Emission factors (i.e., emission rates per unit surface area) for the VOCs of interest are then determined by measuring the concentrations in a small environmental test chamber containing a specimen and being ventilated at a constant air change rate under the standard environmental condition.; Volatile organic compounds
AbstractLa méthode permet de mesurer la quantité de contaminants organiques volatils (COV), à l'exclusion du formaldéhyde, qui sont émis par des panneaux dérivés du bois de fabrication industrielle. Une analyse de pré-élimination identifie les COV qui sont émis par un produit du type panneau dérivé du bois. On détermine ensuite les coefficients d'émission (c'est-à-dire les débits d'émission par unité de surface) pour les COV qui nous intéressent en mesurant leurs concentrations, dans une petite chambre atmosphérique d'essai contenant un échantillon et qui est ventilée selon un débit de renouvellement d'air constant, en condition d'ambiance normale.
