Personal Dust Monitors
TSI Real-Time Personal Monitors
The SIDEPAK AM510 series of personal aerosol monitors are rugged, lightweight, belt mounted laser photometers, weighing as little as 455g. They are compact and quiet, minimizing interference and worker discomfort. The built-in sampling pump lets you attach a wide variety of size-selective inlet conditioners for worker breathing zone or area measurements with a respirable cyclone or one of the three integrated impactors. The AM510 comes with TSI's smart battery management system, which includes long-running NiMH or alkaline battery packs and provides precise run time information in minutes remaining. The units are also intrinsically safe (CSA).
The AM510 personal aerosol monitor's easy-to-read display shows your data in both real-time aerosol mass concentration and 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA). With its convenient data logging and long battery life, the monitor is also ideal for extended sampling. Easy-to-use TRAKPRO data analysis software lets you pre-program sampling events and create effective graphs and reports. Available in single- and 3-unit kits.
Why everyone is buying real-time personal monitorsAC
While gravimetric samplers are great and are often used with sampling pumps (also sold by Kenelec), they cannot tell you the time of day that a worker was exposed to high levels of aerosol, nor can they tell you for how long. You simply don’t get that dynamic real-time data that you can get with a real-time AM510 monitor. The AM510 gives you the time, the date, the day and you know minute by minute exactly what your workers are being exposed to.
Let’s face it, you can’t fix what you don’t know. The AM510 can be used to precisely track down sources of pollutants that could be making your workers less productive or sick. It provides audible and visual alarms for your workers, keeping them out of harms way rather than finding out later what they were exposed to.
Your time weighted average for the day may seem okay, however were your workers exposed to dangerous levels of pollutants at times during the day? The AM510 can help you find out.
