EPAM-5000 PARTICULATE AIR MONITOR
Haz-Dust Environmental Particulate Air Monitor
The EPAM-5000 provides a complete real-time profile and graphical representation of airborne particulate levels and exposures with data read out in milligrams per cubic meter ( mg/ m³ ) . This dynamic capability is not possible with using only a gravimetric particulate sampler. The EPAM-5000 combines both the real-time and gravimetric technique, which allows the investigator more accuracy in defining and analyzing the nature and magnitude of potential health risk resulting from the inhalation of lung damaging particulates.
The EPAM-5000 complements both the EPA and OSHA reference methods. By offering an inexpensive and fast means to define problem areas and to " pinpoint " where more study is needed.
The EPAM-5000 requires no special skills or tools and can be easily setup in minutes for measuring Particulate Matter. All real-time data is immediately stored in the instrument' s computer memory and can be viewed on the LCD display or downloaded to a PC using the provided statistical software package.
Immediate display and data storage of lung damaging aerosols.
Unique aerodynamic particulate sizing real-time sensor and in-line 47mm filter cassette which allows concurrent gravimetric samplings.
High correlation to EPA PM-10 methods and TEOM* .
Easy to use data analysis software.
5.0 Lpm ( liters per minute) flow compensated sampling pump.
True 24 hour battery capacity or continuous A/ C power operation.
Audible alarm siren.
Optional Wireless Data Transmission to Central Computer
The EPAM-5000 reduces the cost of acquiring data for regulatory compliance program support and safety audit reporting. The benefit of real-time data collecting allows for immediate and permanent documentation and assists in reducing the number of manual filter gravimetric tests. This reduces labor costs and associated lab analysis and results in a cost saving for any air monitoring programs.
