HIRE (HSE) Modified Swinnex Welding/Solder Fume Heads

From: £55.00

Kits available containing 5 or 10 modified Swinnex Welding Fume collection heads for use with Casella APEX sampling pumps (see Casella APEX Pumps for Hire if you require pumps).

These are HSE’s preferred collection heads for determining ‘In Visor’ exposures to Welding Fume.  They are also HSE’s preferred collection method for monitoring Solder Fume (Colophony) exposures.

The kit also contains a DryCal primary calibrator (or equivalent).  The DryCal DC-Lite offers a primary flow standard that can be used for accurate calibration of the air sampling pumps.  Displays flow rate, flow average with number of readings – no fiddling with rotameters.

Pre-weighed 13mm MCE filters are available with analytical options of Gravimetric, Welding Fume Suite or Colophony (solder fume) from IOM Consulting Limited, Research Avenue North, Riccarton, Edinburgh  EH14 4AP; Tel 0131 449 8059.  Contact Steve Clark, Mineralogy Section Manager.
