Airborne hazardous substances – Air Monitors

Specialist instrumentation provider Air Monitors has launched a new division to cater specifically for the air-monitoring requirements of the food industry. The new division will focus on four areas: dust in the workplace, bioaerosol hazards, gas mixers/blenders and packaging gas.

With regard to bioaerosols Air Monitors recently launched Coriolis µ to address airborne biological hazards in food-processing plants. It features a new wet-walled cyclone technology that is said to improve bioaerosol sampling for bacteria, pollen, endotoxins, viruses and fungal spores.
According to Air Monitors, traditional techniques rely on the impact of biological particles on a solid-growth medium, but the Coriolis µ collects the particles in a liquid at a high flow rate (300 l/m) with validated efficiency that surpasses traditional methods. It adds that the liquid containing the particles is compatible with a number of the latest rapid microbiological analysis methods.

The company adds that a range of leading dust monitors has also been assembled to cover every application. Portable particulate monitors enable occupational safety managers and consultants to conduct accurate surveys in order to assess the levels of risk and to identify potentially dangerous areas.
