“Microscopical Studies of the Asbestos Fiber Releasability of Dryer Felt Textiles”


Microscope, Vol 47:2 93-100


Dryer felts are commercial woven textile materials used in the paper making industry to aid in the removal of moisture from the wet paper product. Some dryer felts used in the paper making industry contained asbestos. Microscopical tests including polarized light microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, phase contrast microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy were used in the testing that determined that particles including asbestos fibers are released from the dryer felts during use.
