Dust Deposition Monitoring
Dust deposition standard gauge and directional gauge monitoring is utilised for monitoring localised dust levels. The principle of this sampling and analysis is to determine over a given sampling period; 30 days (April - October) and 14 days (November - March), particles which settle from the ambient air that are collected via a vessel - gauge and retained together with any rain water in a sample container. The mass deposition rate of deposited matter is then calculated from the mass of total solids obtained and the exposure period. Insoluble Solids & Soluble Solids can also be determined.
We are NATA accredited for the sampling & analysis of dust deposition via Australian Standard AS/NZ 3580.10.1:2003 - Determination of Particulate Matter - Deposited matter - Gravimetric method.
We can also undertake Directional Dust deposition testing via AS 2724.5-1987 (Directional dust gauge method). Analysis is also via AS/NZ 3580.10.1:2003 and is NATA accredited.
Common activities/sources that require dust deposition monitoring include;
• Road & Construction sites
• Industrial operations
• Remediation works
• Agricultural areas
• Landfills in urban areas
• Mining operations
Eurofins | mgt can supply gauges, set-up, sample, analyse and report deposition dust monitoring programs. This includes sampling & analysis via High Volume Air Samplers.
We routinely undertake work in Victoria (metro & Country), Tasmania, NSW & SA. All air sampling equipment is owned, maintained and calibrated by Eurofins | mgt.
