EVADE 2.2 has been updated with expanded video and data features to make it a more generalized and powerful tool.
2/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe performance of the current regulatory approach was found to be lacking due to the use of a variable property - quartz content in airborne dust - to establish a standard for subsequent exposures.
3/1/2011 - Peer reviewed journal articlesField tests confirm that an air-blocking shelf installed in the inside perimeter of a blasthole drill shroud substantially improves dust control. This modification reduced respirable dust by 66%–81% in the immediate vicinity of the shroud...
Equivalency of a Personal Dust Monitor to the Current United States Coal Mine Respirable Dust Sampler1/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe work presented in this paper focuses on the relationship between the PDM and respirable dust concentrations currently measured by a coal mine dust personal sampler unit utilizing a 10 mm Dorr Oliver nylon cyclone.
9/1/2006 - Reports of InvestigationsThis report includes the theory of operation, description, and the performance of the Personal Dust Monitor (PDM) compared to gravimetric-based reference dust sampling methods and laboratory verification of the instruments accuracy.
