  • Dust concentration measurement with ProSens - Case Study

    Application A food manufacturer refi nes dairy products. The dust-laden exhaust air created during the manufacturing process is extracted by suction and cleaned by industrial fi lter systems. With increasing abrasion of the fi lter elements, the dust content in the exhaust air may rise and lead to increased environmental pollution. The continuous dust measurement (mg/m3) is ...

  • Continuous dust monitoring with AirSafe - Case Study

    Application A producer of dry mortar needs dry sand and trass for the production process. Both materials are dried in a hot gas heater at a temperature of 500 °C before they are admixed. The hot gas heater uses brown coal dust as combustion material. The brown coal dust, which is stored in a silo, is transported via a rotary valve in free fall to a distribution plate. From there it ...

  • Dust monitoring with AirSafe - Case Study

    Application A waste incineration plant burns waste. A fi nal product of this incineration process is fi lter dust, which is stored in silos before being evacuated. For the ambient air monitoring of the silos, convey lines and connected rooms, the plant manager looked for a maintenance-free way to detect dust leaks and malfunctions. Optical techniques were not ...

  • Sahara Dust pollutes Southern Greece – this is how Lufft Ceilometers can help

    Information related to the range resolved aerosol-cloud physical properties appears to be mandatory for our better understanding of the atmospheric dynamics, air quality and climate change. Recently, the Southern part of Greece  suffered from a severe Saharan Dust outbreak. The dust had been driven across the Mediterranean due to strong south winds. The island of Crete was mostly affected by ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...

  • Silver Membranes in Monitoring Respirable Crystalline Silica

    Crystalline silica, most commonly found in the form of quartz, is a basic component of the earth; it’s found in soil, sand granite, and other minerals. During many industrial processes, crystalline silica is released as particles that are 100 times smaller than beach sand.1 Due to their size, these mineral particles cannot easily be cleared by human lungs. Instead, they persist in the ...

  • How many nanoparticles does your car emit?

    Topi Rönkkö, Tampere University of Technology, together with his colleagues showed that traffic is a source for small nanoparticles (link to this study further down). They call them nano cluster aerosol (NCA). The size of these particles is between 1.3-3.0 nm in diameter. Similar results are supported also by other researchers (see the links below). Atmospheric measurements near traffic ...
