Fast, in-field analysis for respirable crystalline silica
- Get fast results—Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) compatible
- Use for monitoring of silica and respirable dust analysis
- Carbon-filled conductive housing reduces wall deposits
- Preloaded 5 µm, 37-mm diameter PVC membrane
Use the EoS cassettes with a portable Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) instrument for fast on-site sample analysis. The filter section of a four-piece sampling cassette is removed and placed in a portable FTIR where it is examined and analyzed in one to two minutes, so immediate controls can be implemented if needed. FTIR uses a software program called FAST (Field Analysis of Silica Tool) developed by NIOSH to sort and organize respirable crystalline silica exposure data.
The preloaded PVC filter membrane contains no silica, has very low ash properties, and features stainless steel supports for added durability.
