Our original detection device is specifically designed to recognize airborne carbon nanotubes and graphene. Monitoring exposure of these potentially harmful fibers and platelets is a must-do in any occupational environment.
Our detection system is designed to recognize airborne silica, which can be extremely harmful to the lungs. In fact, the Greeks and Romans realized centuries ago how damaging silica dust was. Silica dust is widely created in construction, maritime and general industry.
Nanocellulose fiber monitoring
Our detection system is designed to recognize cellulose nanocrystal, which ongoing research shows can be harmful if inhaled. Although it is derived from wood and considered a green material, its size and shape make it potentially dangerous because it is easy to breathe in.
Badges can be worn by employees to monitor personal exposure, as well as placed in specific locations within a facility to monitor release. Each badge is about the size and weight of a phone, so it is easy to wear throughout the workday. There is a small opening that allows air to flow through to the filtration slide.
Filtration slides with specially developed membranes are used to gather particles from the filtered air. Each slide has one, two or three membranes to collect the respirable particle fraction. The appropriate number of membranes is determined by how “clean” a facility is. Each slide has a barcode so it can be traced to a certain user, and the slides can be archived to provide an additional record of compliance.
