Microdust Pro is
a rugged, hand-held,
data logging instrument for the
real-time detection of airborne
dusts, fumes and aerosols.
It has a large colour display and a graphical facility, allowing the
user to instantly view the dust level and trends. It is ideal for walkthrough
surveys of ambient and indoor workplace environments.
A quick, easy to use instrument, giving the user additional
qualitative data which cannot be gained by gravimetric air
sampling methods alone. This extremely versatile instrument
can also be used with a range of accessories for static and size
selective sampling applications.
The CEL-712 Microdust Pro has the highest measurement range
of any occupational dust measurement instrument available on
the market. Up to 500 measurements can be taken and stored
with the large memory. This data can be downloaded into Casella
Insight Data Management Software, where it can be stored and
analysed as necessary. Reports can easily be generated by
location or person using the intuitive report wizard.

Quick and Easy Dust Measurements
The CEL-712 Microdust Pro can be used for spot checks and walk-through
surveys with the advantage of seeing instantly when and where excessive dust
levels are occurring. The CEL-712 Microdust Pro is incredibly easy to use with a
simple interface. A user can be taking a measurement within seconds of starting
A calibration filter is used on site that provides a spot check of the instrument’s
linearity. This is unique to the marketplace as no other device currently has
this capability. The screens are colour coded to ease navigation, once a
measurement is started they turn green (shown below) or red when stopped.
When taking a measurement, real-time instantaneous and average levels are
shown and subsequently stored to the memory for review later.
The instrument is factory calibrated using a method traceable
back to isokinetic techniques and is conducted in a custombuilt
wind tunnel using ISO 12103-1 A2 Fine test dust (Arizona
road dust equivalent). Each probe is also supplied with its
own unique Calibration Insert, which creates a known optical
scattering effect in the probe’s sampling chamber. This fixed
reference can be used to confirm the original factory calibration
point, although annual factory recalibration is recommended.
Whilst the CEL-712 Microdust Pro comes factory calibrated, by
using an optional TUFF Air Sampling Pump and gravimetric
adaptor, user-defined dust-type settings may be obtained.
This means that the user can calculate a correction factor for
the actual type of dust being measured and ensures maximum
accuracy for their particular application.
Casella Insight Data Management Software
The CEL-712 Microdust Pro can be downloaded to Casella Insight Data
Management Software using the USB cable provided. Once downloaded, the
time history of the dust level can be displayed and analysed as necessary, so
the times and extent of particularly ‘dusty’ events can be seen.
Measurements can be stored in relation to the person or area they were
measured and reports can be produced showing the relevant data for
multiple people or places as required.
Accessories and ‘Dust Detective’
A number of accessories are available for use with the CEL-712
Microdust Pro. The size selective adaptor can be used in conjunction
with an air sampling pump and PUF filters, such that the real time
measurement will be of the required size fraction of dust. If just
gravimetric calibration is required then the gravimetric adaptor can
be used with an air sampling pump.
The Dust Detective enclosure transforms the Microdust Pro into a
short term environmental dust monitor. The Microdust Pro and a
TUFF air sampling pump (purchased separately) are housed inside
and can therefore provide continuous real-time and gravimetric dust
measurements. PUF filters can be used with the Dust Detective to
give PM10, respirable or PM2.5 size fractions.
