The new instrument incorporates two different systems, the established DustScan directional DS100 “sticky pad” system and the DS5, an integrated filter reference particulate monitor. The DS5 is supplied with a battery pack powering the internal pump and logger for a full week to coincide with routine filter changes

As a combination nuisance/ambient dust sampler the equipment has numerous applications across a wide range of industrial sectors, such as:

  • Baseline monitoring

  • Short term monitoring to identify and/or rate dust issues

  • Compliance monitoring

  • Routine boundary monitoring

  • Dust source identification studies

    The bespoke battery supply means location or availability of a mains power supply is not an issue.

    The DS5 has a modular design using a separate inlet integrated into the DS100 post and an interchangeable sampling pump and filter module housed within the post.

    This means the system is discrete and very simple to use. The DS5 inlet has a size selective impactor with an interchangeable jet (patent pending) system to set the size cut off point for TSP, PM10 or PM2.5.
