Why Black Carbon Aerosols Should Be Measured
Black carbon is a primary aerosol component of diesel particulate matter (DPM), a known toxin and regulated pollutant by several regulatory agencies, including the California Air Resources Board. DPM is known to cause adverse health effects, including asthma attacks, bronchitis and other respiratory and cardiovascular symptoms.
The Most-Used Instrument to Comply with 53 Federal Regulations that Require EPA Monitoring
VOC monitoring using EPA method 21 “Determination of volatile organic compound leaks” is well-defined and rigorous.
Monitoring Personal Dust Exposures Will Improve Production and Lessen Costs of PPE
A number of materials hazardous to health occur in the workplace as aerosols—suspensions of solid or liquid particles in air.
Bioaerosols Monitoring Reduces Health Risks and Product Contamination
Bioaerosols (ACGIH uses the term biologically-derived airborne concentrations to describe bioaerosols, gases and vapors that living organisms produce) are natural components of indoor and outdoor environments but may be considered contaminants when found indoors or when emitted from certain “industrial” processes.
How to Quickly Reduce the Significant Risks of "Unknown Gases"
The Clean Air Acts lists 187 hazardous air toxics that are regulated. These air toxics can cause cancer and other serious health effects.
Continuous Hazardous Gas Detection Systems Must Comply with Upgraded Requirements
It makes no sense to operate with an out-of-date and perhaps out-of-compliance hazardous gas detection system.
Continuous Area Dust Monitoring Now Required for Many Construction Sites
Continuous monitoring of fugitive (“nuisance” or “visible”) dust emissions save money by avoiding air quality violations, lessening community concerns and minimizing dust suppression costs.
