Abstract

The growing use of nanomaterials requires the development of tools enabling study of the risks to consumer, worker, and environment. This study relates to the risk of suspension of inhalable particles upon production and/or use of powders constituted of nanoobjects, and more specifically to the potential of the vortex shaker as apparatus for determining the dustiness of a powder and as atmosphere generating tool for experimental toxicology. The powder chosen for this study was Graphistrength C100 (ARKEMA), a multiwalled carbon nanotube. Its agitation in a vortex shaker at 1500 rpm leads to an aerosol divided into four families, from isolated fibres to micronic pellets. The study highlights that the speed of agitation and the geometry of the device are influential parameters, to be systematically taken into account. It concludes that while the technique seems mature to conduct C100 dustiness tests, developments are still necessary to use it routinely for toxicology studies.
