This is the SKC Haz-Dust EPAM 5000 which is provided with DUSTComm Professional software, a strong battery life allowing for 24 hours of continuous sampling, and a memory capable of storing 15 months of monitoring data.

As a portable microprocessor-based particulate monitor, the HAZ-DUST EPAM 5000 is suitable for use in environmental, ambient and indoor air quality investigations. This monitor is highly sensitive and uses light scattering to measure particle concentration and provide immediate real-time determinations and data recordings of airborne particle concentration in mg/m3. There are interchangeable size-selective sampling heads which allow PM10, PM2.5, PM1.0 or TSP monitoring. The EPAM-5000 has a unique aero-dynamic particle sizing. The 47mm in-line filter holder loaded with the appropriate filter provides concurrent gravimetric sampling. On one battery you can sample for up to 24 hours. You can store up to 15 months of monitoring data. For further analysis you can download the data onto a PC using the included DUSTComm Professional software. Management ready reports and trend analysis can also be generated. The EPAM-5000 can interface with the VDM-7500 wireless video dust exposure monitoring system.
