ENVIRONMENTAL PARTICULATE AIR MONITOR (EPAM)
Applications
  • Quantifying off-site particulate migration
  • Surveying for PM2.5 and PM10
  • Monitoring dust generation during drilling and excavation
  • Evaluating dust suppression and engineering controls
  • Locating and identifying "hot spots"
  • Emergency response and fugitive emissions compliance
  • Determining level of respiratory protection
  • Survey of workplace for OSHA/EPA compliance
  • Evaluating worker exposure to airborne contaminants
  • Dust collector/ventilation system checks
  • Monitoring lung-damaging particles in factories and buildings
  • Complementary instrument for all EPA and OSHA personal
       and ambient particulate air sampling procedures
Description
The portable HAZ-DUST EPAM-5000 particulate monitor is ideal for ambient, environmental, and indoor air quality investigations. The highly sensitive EPAM-5000 uses light scattering to measure particle concentration and provide real-time determinations and data recordings of airborne particle concentration in mg/m3. Interchangeable size-selective impactors allow PM10, PM2.5, PM1.0, or TSP monitoring. The unique aerodynamic particle sizing and optional 47-mm in-line filter holder loaded with appropriate filter can provide concurrent gravimetric sampling. Download and store sampling data on a PC for analysis and reporting using included DustComm Pro Software.

  • Fast, easy setup
  • Highly sensitive and accurate

    • Ideal for saturation sampling
  • Up to 24-hour operation on one battery charge
    • Continuous monitoring with AC adapter
  • Immediate display and data storage
  • Audible alarm siren
  • Easy-to-use DustComm Pro data analysis and reporting software included
  • Portable and compact
    • 14 x 6 x 10 inches ( 35.6 x 15.2 x 25.4 cm)
    • 10 pounds (4.5 kg)
  • Interchangeable size-selective impactors for EPA parameters
    • PM10, PM2.5, PM1.0, and TSP

* Pump has a variable flow rate designed for use at 4.0 L/min to achieve proper size selection.
