Jul 11 2017 Comments 0

Following a rigorous testing process, Casella has announced Intrinsically Safe approval for its Apex2 personal sampling pump range, with class leading performance and capability.

Instruments supplied for application in atmospheres where there is a risk of explosion must be designed with the appropriate safety requirement critical in achieving IS approval; protecting the equipment and ensuring it is safe to use. Achieving the IS certification for the Apex2 range ensures that monitoring and analysis of dust exposure can be carried out safely and effectively in these areas. The range includes three separate models - the Apex 2, Apex 2 Plus and Apex 2 Pro, with different functionality to meet varying requirements; all designed to monitor workplace dust levels to help protect workers from developing long latency health problems as the result of occupational exposures.

Incorporating Bluetooth connectivity with Casella’s bespoke Airwave software; workers can be monitored remotely without being distracted, boosting productivity levels. Monitoring specialists can view the status of their dust sampling pump on a worker and start, stop or even pause the tool from a smart device. This software is simple and easy to use, providing real-time status updates, allowing collected data to be emailed alongside photos and notes, adding context to the data and further simplifying the reporting process.

Tim Turney, Casella’s product manager said: “Achieving the IS accreditation for the Apex2 sampling pump demonstrates our commitment to providing solutions that ultimately help to enhance the long term health and quality of life for workers operating in high risk sectors. The Apex2 IS has also gained the certification without compromising the power and battery life that the Apex2 is known for, allowing it to be used with many types of air sampling media.”
