Air XS Silica Monitor: Real-time silica detection is here.
For the first time in history, putting an end to silicosis caused by the inhalation of silica particulates in the workplace has become a realistic possibility. Produced with the support of the Centre for Work Health and Safety, the Trolex Air XS Silica Monitor provides accurate, reliable, real-time data on respirable crystalline silica (RCS) levels in challenging industrial environments. Real-time RCS detection. It’s here.
Let’s end silicosis. Forever.
Silicosis is the most common occupational lung disease in the world today. In fact, there are on estimate between 40-50 million workers exposed to harmful silica dust in the workplace. Inhaling harmful silica dust eventually leads to silicosis; a deadly respiratory disease. With real-time RCS monitoring, Trolex is on a mission to end this.
Real-time RCS monitoring to protect your people.
Real-time RCS data is the key to ending the problem of silicosis in the workplace. Instant alarms, intelligent use of PPE and RPE, agile process development and smart deployment of ventilation and extraction systems will help save lives, reduce costs and protect the reputation of your business.
Governments working with Trolex.
In 2020, the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Respiratory Health published a report entitled Silica – the next asbestos? highlighting the dangers posed by silica dust.
Find out more about how Trolex is working with Governments around the world and with the APPG on an updated version of the report that will include recommendations on using our revolutionary real-time silica monitoring technology.
How did we do it?
It took nine years and over 50,000 hours of development work to create the Air XS Silica Monitor.
The units deploy Optical Refraction Technology alongside Optical Particle Counting capability to quantify a series of markers unique to silica including size, symmetry, birefringent behaviours and refractive qualities. Our Breathe+ high-speed crystallinity detection algorithm processes the results in real time, triggering a triple-voting system that accurately identifies and distinguishes harmful silica content.
Breathe easy with our Breathe XS software.
Our Breathe XS software gives you complete control over your Air XS data and fleet through your Windows or Mac. See live data reporting, create graphs, view incident logs, set alarm thresholds, remotely configure your real-time silica monitors and much more.
Real-time RCS data when and where you need it.
As simple as ever.
Start monitoring for RCS in five seconds from start-up and complete the monthly maintenance in around a minute. No complicated calibration routines, cleaning procedures or return-to-base reconfiguration.
All you need is the Trolex Compliance Audit Pack S and you’re good to go. Real-time silica monitoring for the real world.
Air XS Silica Monitor recognised as ‘Highly Commended’ at the BSiF Awards 2022
