Dust measurement in underground mining

Safety in underground mines is a primary concern for miners and mine operators. Visibility of people and assets is also essential to optimize workflow and maximize output. A transmittance dust measuring device measures dust at medium to high concentrations, alerting operators when defined limits are imminent. This allows sufficient time to increase fan speeds to extract the dust or even evacuate the mine.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Integrated contamination check for sender/receiver and reflector unit
    • Automatic self-alignment of the optical assembly
    • Automatic check of zero and reference point
    • For medium to high dust concentrations
    • For small to large measuring distances
