Industry Expert Casella Launches Most Technologically Advanced High Flow Pump in the Air Sampling Market 

Asbestos-related diseases take the lives of 20 tradespeople every week.  Despite being banned in the UK, asbestos can still be found in older homes and industrial properties built between the 1950s and 70s, posing a threat to anyone who disturbs the dangerous material.

Global occupational hygiene and workplace hazard monitoring expert Casella has launched the Vortex3, the most innovative high flow pump on the market, designed to simplify asbestos and air sampling.

Hazard Engineering Solutions talks to Tim Turney, Global Marketing Manager at occupational hygiene and workplace hazard monitoring expert Casella, about the use of boundary monitoring

What is site boundary monitoring, and where is it used?

Site boundary or ‘fence line’ monitoring is used widely on construction sites and other high-risk locations including demolition projects, mines and quarries and environmental remediation sites. Boundary monitoring units are set up on the exterior perimeter of the worksite to monitor for potential hazards that might cause compliance issues for the site, or present a health risk to workers and site neighbours. It’s an essential part of the safety and risk management ecosystem of these sites, and helps control and mitigate potential environmental, health, and reputational risks.

New GRDE-4200 electronic grounding system with increased safety

 Protection during the loading and unloading operations of liquids and dry inert material.

The GRDE-4200 electronic earthing system help to prevent fire and explosions in areas with hazardous levels of static electricity when trucks or trains load and unload liquids and dry materials.

Filling, dispensing, transporting and tipping materials into vehicles or containers generates static electricity simply through the movement of the material being processed or handled.

 The charge level is greater for poorly conductive solvents flowing through plastic pipes. Furthermore, a fast flow or large amounts of air bubbles flowing through the pipe can amplify the static electricity.
