Individual Dust Sampler CIP10
The individual dust sampler CIP 10 has been developed to meet the requirements, rigors and needs of coal mines. Nowadays this small and compact instrument is intended for collection of dust, in order to evaluate the concentrations of silica gel inhaled by the workers during their work time.
The air sampling is done by the rotation of a foam, whose cells lead to an aspiration flowrate of 10 l/min, similar to the human respiratory flowrate. Considering the quantities of dust collected through this relatively high flowrate, the weight measurement can be done with a 0.1 mg precision balancer. Different quantitative analysis of the collected aerosols can be conducted after rinsing, dissolving or incinerating the rotating foam.
