Types of Dustmeter
Expertise in dust measurement - the right device for every application
Dustmeter Type I/II (DIN 55992)
The original Heubach Dustmeter is a highly qualified monitoring/feedback device designed to help control the dust properties of bulks, powders, granules and fibers, with the unique ability to simulate an array of mechanical handling scenarios. This makes it the only device of its kind on the market.
Dustmeter AE (DIN 33897)
The Heubach Dustmeter AE has a modified sampling train which allows to distinguish the particle size of airborne dust particles. With two different sampling heads, the two most important fractions of aerosols can be determined: The A & E fractions (=respirable & inhalable). This modified sampling train was introduced and developed by the University of Wuppertal, one of the most important research centers for aerosols worldwide.
The Heubach Dustmeter Mini was developed together with the renowned Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Eberhard Schmidt and his team from the University of Wuppertal. The advantage of this Dustmeter variation is that only very small quantities of test material is needed (5g). This is important for materials that are either especially rare, expensive, or hazardous, and therefore only available in limited quantities.
Dustmeter EN (EN 15051)
The rotating drum according to the European standard EN 15051 is a frequently published method in scientific literature, yet has not been available on the market for many years. With a brand new construction, Heubach has brought this device back to the dust testing world.
DusTower IGF (EN 15051)
The dust forming propensity of powdery bulk materials is analysed with the help of a dust apparatus co-developed with the German IGF institute. Analysis is conducted according to DIN 33897-Part 2 (continuous in countercurrent) and in accordance with EN 15051 method B. With this apparatus, dust building is simulated.
Dustmeter Type III (DIN 55992)
The Heubach Dustmeter Type III was originally developed in cooperation with a leading group of the chemical industry to measure the dust abrasion of enzymes in granules. It can be seen as an alternative to the IBIS test.
