Let’s Get Real: Air XS Silica Detector

‘New asbestos’ crisis is here. Don’t let history repeat itself.

In the 1980s, the asbestos crisis brought terrible suffering and harm to both workers and members of the public exposed to this killer particulate. There was no way of detecting the presence of asbestos back then, and many died as a result. Silica dust is everywhere and it’s every bit as dangerous as asbestos, only this time we can detect it and we can protect people. Find out more.

Silica – the next asbestos?

It’s one of the most dangerous and prevalent types of dust present in industrial spaces – respirable crystalline silica or RCS, is a tiny glass-like particulate that lodges in the lining of the lungs and can lead to death and disease. In 2020, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Respiratory Health published a report entitled  Silica – the next asbestos? highlighting these dangers.

Find out more about how Trolex is working with the APPG on an updated version of the report that will include recommendations on using our revolutionary RCS monitoring technology.

Real-time dust monitoring

We need to talk about dust.

There are 100 times as many deaths in the workplace caused by the inhalation of dust as there are from every other cause of death in the workplace combined. As a society we simply can’t allow this to continue. Most of these deaths are preventable, and effective prevention starts with accurate, real-time dust monitoring and alarms. It really is that simple.

Everything you need for simple, low-cost dust monitoring.

From fit-and-forget personal dust monitors to robust area particulate monitoring devices for harsh and hazardous industrial locations we’ve got the product you need. Combined with our Breathe, BreatheLITE and Breathe XS software to bring dust monitoring information to your business in an easy and engaging way.

Near-zero maintenance dust monitors.

We don’t use filters, pumps, impactors, or other moving parts in our particulate monitoring products. Which is why they typically require around 20 minutes of maintenance every 3 to 6 months. Most of our competitors’ products require that every single day.

Real-time dust monitoring in the Hierarchy of Controls.

The ‘Hierarchy of Controls’ sets out the best practice for dealing with hazardous substances in the workplace. Deploying real-time fixed or portable dust monitors can revolutionise how you implement the Hierarchy of Controls for particulate hazards, by giving you live data to work with. This means that you can instantly identify if your controls are working or not and how you can best respond to developing dust hazards throughout the workplace and process.

Put real-time dust monitoring to work in your operation and find out how it can not only save the lives of your people, but also improve the efficiency of your business and impact the bottom line. Personal, portable and fixed dust monitoring for every application.
