Dustiness determined through Heubach dust analysis by Delft Solids Solutions

For a reliable analysis of dust, leading dust analysis laboratory Delft Solids Solutions uses the Heubach dust analysis method. This method is described in DIN 55992. A similar method is also described in the European standard on dustiness testing in relation to workplace exposure, EN 15051. In the Heubach dust analyzer, the sample is placed in a stainless steel drum. Rotating this drum simulates the handling and conveying of powders, granules, tablets, et cetera. The dust particulates released are quantified and can be analysed further in our well-equipped analytical labs. This dust analysis can include particle size analysis or density analysis, for instance.

The instrument used in our dust analysis laboratory is a third generation Heubach dust meter outfitted with a type I or type II supplementary. The state-of-the-art equipment for dustiness determination is operated by the knowledgeable staff of our dust analysis laboratory to guarantee the best results.
