Terra Sana Consultants has technical expertise and cutting edge equipment to support ambient air investigations and studies.
Terra Sana Consultants scientists can help measure dust deposition with a dust fall gauge. The gauge is a simple and cost-efficient method to sample dustfall over 1 month to ensure a measurable quantity of dust is captured in the gauge and can be sent to a laboratory for analysis.
Total Suspended Particular
Additionally, Total Suspended Particular matter (TSP) is measure using high volume air sampler. The high volume air sampler draws a large known volume of air through a pre-weighed filter for 24 hours.
Particles less than 10 micrometres in diameter (PM10)
Particles smaller than 10µm are especially concerning as these particles can enter the human respiratory system and penetrate deeply into the lungs, causing adverse health effects.
Instruments used to measure PM10 are either a high or low volume air sampler or a tapered element oscillating microbalance (TEOM).
Respirable dust is very fine dust, which is able to reach the lower regions of the lung. It is generally 10 microns or less in diameter.
