HAZ-DUST I Real-time Particulate Monitor

Orderable Items The HAZ-DUST I real-time particulate monitor, with NiMH rechargeable battery, displays instant calculations of airborne particle concentrations. The selectable dual measuring range feature displays measurements between 0.01 and 20 mg/m3 and from 0.1 to 200 mg/m3. Use the HAZ-DUST I for industrial hygiene, indoor air quality, and hazardous materials investigations.

  • Easy operation and instantaneous readings in mg/m3

  • Selectable dual measuring range feature
    • Particulate concentration measurements between 0.01 and 20 mg/m3 and from 0.1 to 200 mg/m3

  • Easy-to-read digital display

  • Highly sensitive — measures down to 0.01 mg/m3
    • Monitors OSHA/NIOSH reference methods

  • Low battery indicator

  • Unique design provides protection from RFI/EMI; CE Marked

  • Lightweight, rugged, and portable

  • Optional tripod mounting

  • Optional datalogger accessory with display and user-selectable alarm threshold achieves maximum automation for data collection, statistical analysis, graphs, and report generation

  • Includes DustComm Pro Software for downloading, basic trend analysis, and comprehensive graphical reporting




HAZ-DUST I is ideal for industrial and remedial particulate air monitoring applications, such as:
  • Determining level of respiratory protection

  • Survey of workplace for OSHA/EPA compliance

  • Qualifying off site particulate migration

  • Surveying for PM-10 and TSP levels

  • Monitoring dust generation during drilling/excavation

  • Evaluating dust generation/suppression

  • Locating/identifying "hot spots"

  • Emergency Response and SARA Title III fugitive emissions compliance

  • OSHA and EPA personal and ambient particulate air sampling

Portable PM Survey Tool
HAZ-DUST I Real-time Particulate Monitor

The HAZ-DUST I is designed as a screening tool for IH, IAQ, and fenceline/perimeter monitoring of construction and other projects. HAZ-DUST I is factory calibrated for respirable particulate mass (50% cut-point of 4 µm) at ± 10% with SAE fine dust test. An alternative 10-µm cut-point calibration is available as a special order.

The HAZ-DUST I Advantage

  • Saves time and money: No cassettes to purchase or weigh and no lab analysis needed
