Casella, leading provider of noise and air sampling monitoring, showcases comprehensive range of monitoring solutions for both individuals and the environment at Health & Safety North, Manchester 9-10 October 2018. On display at stand G60 will include the Apex2 personal sampling pump range, the dBadge2 personal noise dosimeter and many more.
Casella is dedicated to reducing occupational health and environmental impact risks through its hand-held devices for walk-through surveys and bodily worn solutions for precise personal sampling.
The Apex2 is a range of Intrinsically Safe (IECEx) bodily worn pumps used to sample for airborne contaminants, designed specifically for use in potentially explosive areas in the oil and gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and mining industry. The Apex2 is compatible with Casella’s Airwave App, available for download on both Android and iOS devices. The Airwave App enables users to remotely start, pause or stop a measurement run, monitor battery life and memory capacity and check measurement progress direct from a mobile device, minimising disruption to the worker.
The Flow Detective™ is an electronic flow meter calibrator, designed to measure the flow of air sampling pumps to within 2% accuracy. Additionally, the Flow Detective™ is the first calibrator on the market with the ability to measure pulsation, indicating if the air flow pulsation exceeds 10%. Air sampling pumps must have a pulsation level less than 10% if they are to adhere to ISO 13137.
The Flow Detective can be used with any manufacturers’ air sampling pumps, though, when used with Casella’s Apex2 personal dust sampling pump, the Apex2 and Flow Detective can be connected via the Airwave App allowing for closed loop airflow calibration with the ability to remotely set the flow via Airwave.
Exposure to high noise levels can cause permanent, irreversible hearing damage, however, there are a number of practical ways of preventing and protecting workers against the risks at work. The dBadge2 is the next generation in personal noise dosimeters, ideal for a variety of workplace noise assessments. Intrinsically Safe versions of the dBadge2 are available, making it the perfect tool for personal noise assessment for any industry or environment. The dBadge2 is also compatible with the Airwave App, allowing for remote access making monitoring and easier collection of data.
