AMS says no to dust
AMS Haden Instrument & Mining Services has launched the Thermo Electron pDR-1000AN, which measures airborne particulate concentration in real time.
In contrast with conventional air quality monitoring methods (which are not available in real time), the personalDataRam (pDR-1000AN) measures mass concentrations of dust, smoke, mists and fumes in real time – and then it sounds an audible alarm whenever the user-defined level is exceeded. Therefore, the pDR-1000AN alerts the user to a problem within seconds, allowing for immediate action to be taken.
With the data logging enabled, this instrument automatically tags and time stamps the data collected, and stores it for subsequent retrieval/printout/graphing through a computer.
