Case Studies

"In my role as Equipment Manager, I have used the services of Shawcity for ten years for all of our gas monitor calibrations, services and repairs. The service engineers are always happy to answer queries and take time to talk me through issues over the phone. I find the whole Shawcity team extremely friendly and efficient. Nothing ever seems too much trouble, even when under pressure and working to tight deadlines."

SidePak Personal Aerosol Monitor AM520

SidePak™ Personal Aerosol Monitor AM520

The SidePak™ AM520 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.

Newly designed inlet conditioners increase the mass concentration capability and provide size fraction cut points for PM10, Respirable (PM4), PM5 (China Respirable), PM2.5, PM1, 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 space and mining.
