Dust Monitoring

Setting a new trend in personal dust monitoring

Jul 28 2023

DustCanary recognise the importance of high-quality dust measurement, particularly where the health and safety of workers is at stake. Airborne dust particles in the workplace pose significant risks to human health, and monitoring their levels is key to helping prevent respiratory issues, allergies, and occupational diseases.

With the introduction of real-time personal dust monitoring to support control measures, the DustCanary Trend 420 provides visibility to changes in dust levels and dust hotspots, evidence of what is happening between periodic air sampling and can empower workers to help manage risk around their dust exposure.

At the heart of the device is a robust, high-quality sensor with 2l/min sampling from the front of the device for representative dust measurement. Compact, lightweight and with no sampling tubes or waist worn pumps as catch hazards, the DustCanary Trend 420 enables convenient, continuous use without interrupting productivity and work patterns. Instant visual and audible alarms alert when workers are exposed to increased respirable dust including respirable crystalline silica (RCS).

Used in conjunction with the DustCanary App, dust exposure profiles are captured and reported securely and conveniently. The data provides valuable insights to help diagnose the source of dust hotspots and monitor the effectiveness of mitigation actions and dust control measures to help reduce workers’ exposure to respirable dust.
