Quick, sensitive and accurate analytical techniques that mines and service labs can adopt

Respirable crystalline silica is formed during any mechanical treatment of silica-containing materials. This could be quarrying, tunneling, brick and tile making, stone cutting, construction and demolition works, foundry work, grit and sand blasting, etc. In light of promoting health and safety at the workplace, it is imperative that service laboratories and industrial hygienists are able to accurately monitor and put in place timely control measures. This is to protect overexposure to workers.

May 08 2020 - May 08 2020
10:00 - 12:30
(GMT+08:00) AUS Western
Queensland, QLD(AUS), Australia
Event type:


Here’s what our specialist will cover

  1. Comparison of analytical techniques which are sensitive towards quantifying respirable silica 
  2. Why OSHA ID-W42 and NIOSH Method 7500 classify X-ray diffraction (XRD) as the only method of reliably quantifying crystalline silica polymorphs
  3. Comparison of the latest XRD models. Which is a better fit for you: compact model for routine filter analysis, or advanced model also capable of related R&D activities 
  4. Important points of reference for sample preparation 
  5. Analyse samples and test the performance (speed, sensitivity, accuracy) of our X-ray diffractometers with samples 
  6. Calculate your ROI when adopting XRD as the method for analysis
