Silica Analyzer

Constant exposure to high levels of silica dust, a class 1 human carcinogen adversely affects a miner’s health and future life. Constantly shifting work sites in different geological strata with varying levels of silica make traditional analysis methods ineffective, expensive, labor intensive, and take weeks before exposure data is received.

PerkinElmer Silica Analyzer enables rapid, on-site and non-destructive quantification of respirable crystalline silica (RCS) deposited on PVC sampling filters. Store all relevant and critical data at a single location through Field Analysis of Silica Tool (FAST) software and share quickly across devices to promptly deal with overexposures.

Application Note

At-Site Direct-on-Filter End-of-Shift Portable FT-IR and Fast Respirable Crystalline Silica Quantification

Crushing, drilling, grinding, masonry, concrete work, sandblasting, and mining of silica containing rocks, soil, and sand results in the generation of respirable crystalline silica (RCS) dust - a class 1 human carcinogen. Several studies indicate the correlation between occupational exposure to R ...
