Data Sheet

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.

Casella Measurement is now known just as Casella.
