Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM), Non Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (NRSPM) AND Total Suspended Particulate Matter (TSPM) were estimated in Piduguralla industrial area with the help of PM10 sampler (Respirable Dust Sampler). The PM10 sampler shell dram the air sampler into sampler inlet through the filter at a uniform face velocity. Discharge exhaust air at a sufficient discharge from the sample inlet to minimize the sampling of exhaust air. After the estimation TSPM is 656.01 g /m3 height in summer season and 422.45 g /m3) Lowest in Monsoon. It is more than permissible limit as per EPA.
