This report concerns a pilot scale collection and recovery of air-borne Tuballoy in Building 9206. Methods for evaluating and collecting Tuballoy dust in this building are included. Also presented is an analysis of the procedures to be followed in recovering Tuballoy dust from the type of collectors proposed. A summary of recommendations were (1) Filter units of the PL-24 type loaded with 10 ply treated filter paper should be considered as a practical means for collecting the bulk of the air-borne Tuballoy dust in Building 9206; (2) Dusty operations should be carried out in a ventilated enclosure provided with suitable means for collecting the dust created; (3) All surfaces should be cleaned frequently with a vacuum cleaner and the collected dust should be processed; (4) The feasibility of processing air containing low concentrations of Tuballoy, and Tuballoy found in the smaller particles should be considered. The proper authorities should decide on how far the program should be carried in this direction. Tables are included in this report.
