The Dust Detective is a ruggedised enclosure which can hold a
Microdust Pro real time dust monitor together with an Apex standard or
Apex Lite personal air sampling pump. The unit is simple to assemble
and allows static air samples to be undertaken on site.
The (IP65) enclosure is fully weatherproof, and can be secured in
location with padlocks (not supplied) for extra security.
The air sample is drawn into the enclosure via filters if required to allow
gravimetric samples to be obtained. These filters can also be used to
determine the nature of the particulate pollution for source apportionment
issues. The Microdust Pro allows real time dust levels to be recorded and
data downloaded at the end of the sampling period. Graphs with
summary data can be generated. The internal dry cell batteries allow
operation for over 19 hours.
Respirable, PM10 & PM2.5 fractions can also be monitored by utilising
special inlet foams on the sampling inlet.
This dedicated software package supplied with the Microdust Pro,
allows the user to identify trends in dust levels, areas of concern and hot
spots which will require action, remediation or further attention.
Records can also be kept on file for future reference.
