TSI Incorporated, represented by Kenelec Scientific , have announced the introduction of the DustTrak II and DRX aerosol monitors. The new DustTrak II and DRX aerosol monitors are battery-operated, data-logging, light-scattering laser photometers that give real-time aerosol mass readings.
These monitors measure aerosol contaminants such as dust, smoke, fumes and mists. Aerosol monitors are suitable for clean office settings as well as harsh industrial workplaces, construction and environmental sites and other outdoor applications. The DustTrak II and DRX aerosol monitors are both available in desktop and handheld models.
The new graphical user interface with colour touch-screen puts everything at the user’s fingertips. The easy-to-read display shows real-time mass concentration and graphical data as well as other statistical information.
DustTrak DRX aerosol monitors: These laser photometers simultaneously measure mass and size fraction. Both the desktop and handheld models are continuous real-time 90° light-scattering laser photometers that simultaneously measure size-segregated mass fraction concentrations corresponding to PM1, PM2.5, Respirable, PM10, and Total PM size fractions. Aerosol monitors combine both particle cloud (total area of scattered light) and single particle detection to achieve mass fraction measurements. This size-segregated mass fraction measurement technique is superior to either a basic photometer or optical particle counter (OPC). It delivers the mass concentration of a photometer and the size resolution of an OPC.
DustTrak II aerosol monitors: Both the desktop and handheld models are continuous real-time, single-channel, 90° light-scattering laser photometers that are used to determine the mass concentration of aerosols. A built-in pump allows the use of a variety of size-selective inlet conditioners to measure aerosol concentrations corresponding to PM1, PM2.5, PM10, or Respirable size fractions.
TrakPro data analysis software allows the user to set up and programme directly from a PC. A new feature is the ability for remote programming and data acquisition from the PC through wireless (920MHz or 2.4GHz) communications or over an Ethernet network. This gives the ability to print graphs, raw data tables and statistical and comprehensive reports for recordkeeping purposes.
