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, chemical plants, refineries, petrochemical, power and utilities, transportation, aerospace, maritime, confined spaces 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.
