TSI AM520i

Hover to zoom

The TSI SidePak AM520i intrinsically safe (Ex rated) personal aerosol monitor is a small, portable, battery-operated, data-logging, light-scattering laser photometer that provides real-time aerosol mass concentration readings of dusts, fumes, mists, smoke and fog within a worker breathing zone. The inlet conditioners increase the mass concentration capability and provide size fraction cut points for PM 10 , PM 4 (Respirable), PM 5 (China Respirable), PM 2.5 , PM 1 and 0.8μm Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM).

This monitor is the perfect solution for real-time, personal aerosol sampling in a variety of workplace environments, including but not limited to general industry, foundries, construction sites, demolition sites, chemical plants, refineries, petrochemical, power and utilities, transportation, aerospace, maritime, confined spaces, tunnelling and mining.

FAQs

Q

Can I measure respirable aerosol mass concentration with the TSI SidePak AM520 monitor ?

A

Yes.  The TSI SidePak AM520 aerosol monitor is supplied with a 10 mm Nylon Dorr-Oliver cyclone which provides a particle size fraction cut-point of 4 µm (internationally accepted as the 50% cut-off size
for respirable aerosol mass).

Q

What is the battery run time for the SidePak AM520 monitor ?

A

The battery is a 5400 mAH Li-On battery that provides 20 hours of run time. Impactors and cold
temperatures will reduce the battery run time.

Q

How long does it take the battery to charge ?

A

Battery charge time is approximately 4 hours.
