Real-time onsite silica dust detector launched
Health and Safety technology manufacturer Trolex has launched a new, real-time silica dust detection system for use on site in hazardous environments.
The Air XS Silica Monitor delivers real-time detection of dangerous respirable crystalline silica (RCS) particulates in airborne dust mixtures.
Silica inhalation on construction sites is the second biggest cause of preventable respiratory diseases, after asbestos.
Glyn Pierce-Jones, Trolex CEO, said in Construction Enquirer: “This is an exciting product in real-time silica dust monitoring. The Air XS is a global-leading solution to an increasing health problem in many industries. Real-time silica monitoring is the safest and most cost-effective way to promote workers’ health in the industries associated with RCS.
“The Air XS will substantially reduce the number of surveys needed on site, improve processes create smart ventilation and extraction systems and identify inefficiencies.”
