Expertise in Particulate Monitoring
Particulate monitoring is becoming increasingly important to regulators, especially in densely populated areas where emissions from industries, mining operations, bushfires, roads & tunnels, and landfills can pose health risks and create unsightly smog and haze.
The most common types of particulate matter monitored in ambient air are PM10, particulate matter with a diameter of 10 micrometers or less, and PM2.5, particulate matter with a diameter of 2.5 micrometers or less. These particles are of particular concern because they can be inhaled deep into the lungs and can cause health problems.
Health risks associated with exposure to particle pollution include:
- premature death in people with heart or lung disease
- nonfatal heart attacks
- restrictive lung disease
- irritation of the airways, coughing or difficulty breathing.
For the past 14 years, Norditech has been an expert in providing customised dust monitoring solutions to various industries, including mining, construction, transport, landfill, and more.
We offer real-time dust monitoring systems in various form factors, both for temporary and long-term monitoring programs. Data is easily accessible via our secure web platform, and we create customisable alarms based on your operational requirements, providing an early warning before you breach your license conditions.
At the beginning of each project, our primary objective is to understand our client’s needs. Based on this understanding, we recommend feasible and smart solutions that balance compliance goals with project budgets. Depending on the project scope, our solutions may include site assessments, project management, design and installation, maintenance, data acquisition, validation, and reporting.
We follow applicable Australian and USEPA standards for siting and sampling methods of dust monitoring parameters. We take into consideration factors such as terrain, emission sources, availability of services, and site security to ensure accuracy and precision in our measurements.
To help our clients achieve long-term data compliance, we install robust equipment that operates reliably in harsh environmental conditions. Our custom-designed systems are fully integrated and tested in our factory before installation on site by qualified engineers. This ensures proper workmanship and system integration, perfectly matching your project requirements.
