Radiation portal monitors are specifically designed for the detection of very low radioactive contamination and orphan sources at high traffic flow gates for vehicles, cargo, containers and pedestrians.
Mobile monitoring (on foot) around an urban route to understand personal exposure
Monitoring pollution at different levels up an urban high rise building to understand exposure with windows open
Assessing employee pollutant exposure with indoor/outdoor air quality monitoring
based in Stratford-upon-Avon, UNITED KINGDOM.
Ormantine`s air monitoring equipment is widely used to monitor both indoor and outdoor air quality. Continuous development allows us to provide equipment for a broad range of applications, covering short-term and long-term monitoring. Pollutants can be detected even at very low levels – limits of detection are typically in the low parts per billion (ppb) range. Ormantine USA`s many solutions have applications from personal exposure monitoring to long term fence line monitoring studies.
Many occupations involve the use of hazardous substances or processes, where pollutants may be ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. General ambient pollutants can also have health implications in otherwise non-hazardous workplaces. Occupational exposure limits regulate many pollutants based on an eight-hour working day. Personal exposure assessments can be made over an eight-hour period (Time Weighted Average (TWA) exposure) using our simple to use monitoring equipment.
Traditionally exposure assessment studies in developing countries have been bases on fixed-site monitoring. This study followed school children in three sites and quatified daily personal exposure to UFP with real time monitoring NanoTracer devices. Diaries were kept to correlate exposure levels to activity and the relevant micro-environment. The highest UFP exposures resulted from cooking and eating (64% of daily exposure, due to cooking on traditional wood-fired mud cookstoves). The lowest UFP exposures were...
