Air Sampling

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) requires employers to ensure that if exposure cannot be prevented then it must be adequately controlled. Air sampling is used to measure an individual’s exposure to any substances or chemicals which can be solid, liquid or gas and compare that to a safe workplace exposure limit.

Our personal air sampling pumps collect the substance, which are sent to a lab for analysis. Real time dust monitors give instantaneous particulate levels.

The Widest Flow Range of Any Personal Air Sampling Pump

The GilAir® Plus features wide dynamic flow and pressure ranges to address all personal air sampling methods. Patent pending QuadModeSM air sampling technology can perform both high-flow constant pressure and constant flow, and low-flow constant pressure and constant flow. It’s like getting two pumps in one.

  • Samples particulates, vapours, gases, and metal fumes
  • Standard Temperature & Pressure (STP) Correction
  • Start, stop or pause the sample remotely
  • Monitor and graph flow rate, sample run time, and volume remotely

Improve your air sampling processes with the ultimate personal air sampling pump delivering enhanced performance, greater versatility, and superior design and comfort.

Go-Cal Pro

Calibrate air sampling pumps to set & verify flow rates with complete confidence, anywhere you work with the Go-Cal Pro. Lightweight and easy to operate, the Go-Cal Pro is the must-have precision flow meter for occupational environmental health & safety professionals.

  •  Provides % deviation to show flow stability
  • Engineered with mass flow differential pressure technology and is NIST traceable 

 

Carry out calibrations in the field on your personal air sampling pump.

Monitoring Heat Stress in the Workplace

The JT2011- E2 and JT2013-E2 WBGT are high-precision thermal index measuring instruments, to measure air temperature, wet bulb temperature, radiation temperature and humidity at the same time.

  •  Meets the ISO, ACGIH and relevant national standards.
  • Display air temperature, wet bulb temperature, radiation temperature and humidity in real time
  • RS485 communication interface  can be used to download and analysis measurement data by JTSOFT-DM software.

 

Ensure you and your employees are aware of how to work safely in heat, the factors that can lead to heat stress, and how to reduce the risks.

We are all exposed to contaminants in the air in our daily life. The most obvious being from vehicle pollution but many things are not good for our lungs including flue gases, talcum powder or even bug spray!

In the workplace the list of airborne contaminants can be much bigger and includes wooden dust from furniture making, volatile compounds from cleaning materials and even flour in a bakery.  Air sampling is used to measure an individual’s exposure to any of these substances or chemicals which can be solid, liquid or gas and then compare that to a workplace exposure limit.

‘Personal sampling’ is taking an air sample near the worker’s breathing zone to measure the amount of airborne substances inhaled for a stated task.

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) requires employers to ensure that exposure is preferably prevented or, where it is not reasonably practicable, adequately controlled. It is aimed at people whose responsibilities includes the management of hazardous substances including occupational health specialists or any competent person undertaking COSHH assessments.

Our personal air sampling pumps are used with sampling accessories and media (filters and tubes) to collect the substance, which can then be sent to a laboratory for analysis. This will then give an 8 hour exposure value. Real time dust monitors are also available to give instantaneous particulate levels, which will give an idea of when exposure occurred and an indicative level in real time.

Heat stress includes a range of symptoms that are related to exposure to extreme heat conditions in the workplace. These include heat stroke, heat exhaustion, rashes, and even burns.
