Airtec Personal DPM Monitor


As the only personal exposure monitor to accurately measure diesel particulte matter (DPM), Airtec leverages Elemental Carbon measurement technology developed by the diesel particulate group at the NIOSH Pittsburgh Research Laboratory.

Airtec diesel particulate monitors precisely replicate results from the NIOSH Method 5040 laboratory test but with the advantage of anytime/anywhere flexibility. By replacing lab tests, Airtec can significantly reduce DPM monitoring costs while making it easier to prevent non-compliance.

With lightweight, wearable monitors and real-time alarms for high DPM levels, operators can dramatically transform their over-exposure monitoring policies to enable a responsive, proactive approach to reducing DPM.
