REAL-TIME SILICA DUST MONITORING
solutions from tsi
OSHA's new ruling on the occupational exposure limits to respirable crystalline silica sets the new permissible exposure limit (PEL) to 50% below the previous levels.
Let TSI’s complete portfolio of instrument solutions make it simple to quickly and cost-effectively measure real-time silica exposure levels to capture the critical data needed to drive corrective action---maintaining OSHA compliance while maximizing worker safety.
With real-time monitoring, there is no more waiting for traditional gravimetric sampling results during basic sampling through validation of the corrective action process. You can do in hours what normally takes weeks. Trust TSI---we've got you covered!
Note: Custom calibration factors may be needed when monitoring dust containing silica. For more information on calculating custom calibration factors for respirable silica, see TSI Application Note EXP-014 >>

REAL-TIME MONITORING FOR SILICA IS SIMPLE
Real-time monitoring makes it easy to implement, facilitate and efficiently measure and record dust levels within the workplace.
+ Immediate access to data
+ Immediate decision making
+ Immediate validation of implemented controls
SAVE TIME & MONEY --- REAL-TIME, DIRECT READING VS GRAVIMETRIC SAMPLING
In a side-by-side comparison, direct-reading, real-time instruments can provide for more flexible use and expanded measurement insight.
Gravimetric sampling results provide only a measure of total mass collected and average concentration during the sampling period. Direct-reading, real-time instruments can graphically display time history sample data to show trends along with peak concentration times that can be further investigated, as well as average and time-weighted average mass concentrations.
A direct reading, real-time instrument can be used for short-term area or point source monitoring, or for long-term area monitoring to provide immediate access to mass concentration data. This enables immediate review and understanding of the data for decision making and implementing corrective action(s). Using a direct reading aerosol monitor means there's no need to fill out a chain of custody form, no need to fill out shipping documents to send samples to the lab and no waiting for analytical results.
