Portable real time monitor for assessing the concentration of suspended particulate matter and is probably the most versatile instrument available with the ability to measure from 1 ugm-3 to 2500 mgm-3.
The Dust Detective enclosure is an ideal tool for use with the Microdust Pro real time dust and particulate monitor. It features a waterproof kit case fitted with a sampling pump and all the necessary items to allow a user to make stand alone measurements of dust concentrations over an extended period of time.
With the Apex2IS sampling pump the system provides an autonomous measurement system that will run continuously for up to 18 hours in the field. Both real time logged values and an overall concentration can be captured with correlation to the particle size using PUF foam filters in a standard plastic cassette.
The Dust Detective is a ruggedized enclosure that can hold a Microdust Pro real time dust monitor together with an Apex Lite sampling pump. The complete kit is simple to assemble and allows static air samples to be collected on site. The IP65 enclosure is fully weatherproof and can be secured at the required location with padlocks (not supplied) for added security. The kit provides all the required information for many measurement applications.
Ambient air is drawn into the case through the inlet tube fixed to the lid and passes through size selective foam filters, if required, to allow gravimetric samples to be captured. These filters can be used to determine the nature of the particulate pollution for source apportionment issues. The Microdust Pro allows real time dust and particulate levels to be recorded at regular intervals and then downloaded to the WinDust software at the end of the sampling period.
Graphs with summary data can be easily produced to show the changing dust concentration levels during the measurement to correlate with local site activities that were taking place close by during the recording. The PM10, PM2.5 or the respirable fractions of the dust can be selected and monitored using the polyurethane foam (PUF) filters in the inlet side as supplied with the necessary adapter that is fitted over the optical measurement probe.
- Fully self contained unit for field use
- Based on the Microdust Pro real time dust monitor
- Size selective adapter for PM10, PM2.5 or respirable measurements
- Data logging for time history recordings of changing dust concentration levels
- Complete with optical calibration filter for user to set span of instrument
- Simultaneous real time measurements and a gravimetric sample of the dust can be captured for later laboratory analysis
- Easy operation for up to 13 hours run time from internal AA batteries

The CEL-712 Microdust Pro is a rugged, hand held, data logging instrument for real-time detection of airborne dusts, fumes and aerosols. The Microdust Pro can be used for spot checks and walk through surveys with the advantage of seeing instantly when and where excessive dust levels are occurring. The Microdust Pro is incredibly easy to use with a simple interface. A user can be taking a measurement within seconds of starting the instrument.
An optical insert is used on site that provides a spot check of the instrument’s calibration response. The screens are color coded to ease navigation, once a measurement is started they turn green or red when stopped. When taking a measurement, real time instantaneous and average levels are shown and subsequently stored to the memory for review later.
The instrument is factory calibrated using a method traceable back to isokinetic techniques and is conducted in a custom-built wind tunnel using ISO 12103-1 A2 Fine test dust (Arizona road dust equivalent). Each probe is also supplied with it own unique Calibration Insert, which creates a known optical scattering effect in the probe’s sampling chamber. This fixed reference can be used to confirm the original factory calibration point, although annual factory recalibration is recommended.
The Microdust Pro can be downloaded to Casella Insight Data Management Software using the USB cable provided. Once downloaded, the time history of the dust level can be displayed and analyzed as necessary, so the times and extent of particularly “dusty” events can be seen. Measurements can be stored in relation to the person or area they were measured and reports can be produced showing the relevant data for multiple people or places as required.
