Copley Scientific highlights real-time fibre monitor at European Aerosol Conference

26 July 2011; Nottingham, UK: The 2011 European Aerosol Conference in Manchester, UK (4-9 September 2011) will see Copley Scientific exhibiting the company’s latest solutions for aerosol sampling and particle characterisation. Copley Scientific offers instrumentation for aerosol research in a number of important areas including pharmaceuticals, atmospheric studies, defence and nanotechnology. A particular highlight at the show will be the RealTime Fibre Monitor Model 7400AD, a compact and powerful system that is being adopted for a range of applications.

The 7400AD is a technologically advanced real-time fibre monitor that automatically detects and counts potentially hazardous airborne fibres such as asbestos, mineral wool, advanced composites, ceramics and glass, whilst ignoring non-fibrous background particles. Operating using a rechargeable battery pack, the highly portable fibre monitor is laboratory calibrated at manufacture to NIOSH Method 7400 for asbestos fibres. Furthermore the 7400AD includes a filter positioned ahead of the exhaust outlet, which can be used to collect samples for later chemical or physical analysis.

The European Aerosol Conference takes place at the University of Manchester Oxford Road campus from 4-9 September 2011. The main exhibition and plenary sessions will be held in University Place, the University’s dedicated conference centre.
