Description of key information

In the PSD study levels of respirable dust for tablet and granular products of troclosene sodium samples analysed were less than 0.06%, with most samples being less than 0.02%  for the 10.78µm range and less than 0.2% (typical values of less than 0.05%) for the 52.63µm.  As part of the storage stability study the initial measurement of particle size  was determined to be 0.25% particles < 250 µm and 0.18 particles < 150 µm.The substance is essentially non inhalable.  

Additional information

The particle size distribution of troclosene sodium products were determined to define the levels of respirable dust present.

(Schwartz & Johnson 1995) The data was developed through a combination of gravimetric analysis and laser diffraction particle size analysis.

As part of a 36 month storage stability study the particle size of troclosene sodium was determined initially, and after storage at 25°C for period of 24 and 36 months (O'Connor & Mullee 2003).
