AIRTEC – Diesel Particulate Monitor
The Airtec Diesel Particulate Monitor (DPM) from FLIR displays elemental carbon levels in real time, taking the measurement out of the laboratory and placing it in the hands of the mine operator/ventilation engineer. Sensitive, rugged and easy to use, the Airtec monitor provides results that are time-and-space-resolved. This capability enables rapid modification of vehicle use, personnel placement and mine or building ventilation. The monitor uses technology developed by the diesel particulate group at the NIOSH Pittsburgh Research Laboratory and has been determined to precisely replicate results from their method 5040 test.
