The DustScan DS100 is a directional dust sampler which collects fugitive dust in horizontal flux from 360° around the sampling head using a sticky pad. The directional dust sampler is often used for ‘fence-line’ site boundary monitoring and to determine the direction/s from which dust has arisen. The collected dust is measured using DustScan’s unique software to determine dust coverage (AAC) and dust soiling (EAC); these measurements are expressed as percentages and are noted in IAQM guidance. Subsequent analysis can be carried out if needed to characterise the sampled dust.
DustScan DS100 sticky pad gauges are extremely difficult to tamper with. It is quite evident if dust has been thrown onto sticky pads or if attempts have been made to remove collected dust.
The gauge is robust, inexpensive and easy to install and operate in all weather conditions without a power supply.
