Heat Stress Monitor (HSM) - an Innovation in Heat Stress Monitoring
Nov 15 2011
The portable, rugged Calor Heat Stress Monitor (HSM) is an essential tool for occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) professionals to measure radiant temperature, dry bulb ambient temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and air pressure parameters that affect heat stress in various conditions from industrial workplaces to underground mines.
The HSM has applications in the military, foundries, agriculture, offshore drilling operations, food industry, engineering, sports, and industry. Due to its rugged design and anemometer for measuring wind speed, the HSM is well suited for monitoring in underground mines.
The HSM measures; black globe radiant temperature, dry bulb ambient temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and air pressure. Rugged design stands up to use in underground mines, whilst small size and light weight design ensure easy portability and fast deployment - 370gms (with batteries) (H9.4cm W12cm D4.5cm).
A foldaway sensor system is present, as is a large backlit LCD. The HSM calculates wet bulb temperature based on dry bulb, RH, and wind speed eliminating refilling of thermometer water. This toll displays results as; WBGT (ISO 7243 1989) (BS EN 27243/1994), Thermal Work Limit (TWL) in w/m2, air cooling power in w/m2 and also Min/Max work cycle times. Environmental zone ratings include; unrestricted, acclimatised, buffer, and withdrawal. An Internal logging system allows data to be downloaded to a PC.
OEHS professionals find the HSM ideal for confirming the appropriateness of work clothing and personal hydration practices to prevent heat stress.
SKC Limited and their agents are the exclusive distributors for Calor HSM in the UK and Europe.
