Features and Benefits
Real-Time Dust Monitoring Takes a Giant Leap Forward
Only the new DUSTTRAK™ DRX Aerosol Monitor can
simultaneously measure both mass and size fraction—no
other monitor can do both. DUSTTRAK DRX monitors are
battery-operated, data-logging, light-scattering laser
photometers that give you real-time aerosol mass readings.
They use a sheath air system that isolates the aerosol in the
optics chamber to keep the optics clean for improved
reliability and low maintenance. Suitable for clean office
settings as well as harsh industrial workplaces, construction
and environmental sites and other outdoor applications.
DUSTTRAK DRX monitors measure aerosol contaminants such
as dust, smoke, fumes and mists.
Simultaneously measure size-segregated mass fraction
concentrations corresponding to PM1, PM2.5, Respirable,
PM10, and Total PM size fractions
Easy to program, easy to operate
Industrial/occupational hygiene surveys
New graphical user interface with color touch-screen

Perform in-line gravimetric analysis for custom reference
Outdoor environmental monitoring

DUSTTRAK DRX Aerosol Monitors Are Light Years
Ahead of Any Other
Desktop Models: Ideal for Long-Term Surveys
and Remote Monitoring Applications
These new laser photometers simultaneously measure five sizesegregated mass fraction concentrations at once—something no
other monitor can do. Both the desktop and handheld monitors are
continuous real-time 90° light-scattering laser photometers that
simultaneously measure size-segregated mass fraction
concentrations corresponding to PM1, PM2.5, Respirable, PM10, and
Total PM fractions. They combine both particle cloud (total area of
scattered light) and single particle detection to achieve mass fraction
Manual and programmable data logging functions also make
DUSTTRAK DRX desktop monitors ideal for unattended applications.
They come with USB (device and host), Ethernet, and analog and
alarm outputs allowing remote access to data. User adjustable alarm
setpoints for instantaneous or 15-minute short-term excursion limit
(STEL) are available on desktop models. The alarm output with userdefined setpoint alerts you when upset or changing conditions occur.
This size-segregated mass fraction measurement technique is
superior to either a basic photometer or optical particle counter
(OPC). It delivers the mass concentration of a photometer and the
size resolution of an OPC.
Photometers can be used at high mass concentration, but they
do not give any size information (unless used with size selective
inlet conditioners) and significantly underestimate large particle
mass concentrations.
All DUSTTRAK DRX desktop monitors have four unique features:
Gravimetric sampling capability using a 37-mm filter cassette
which can be inserted in-line with the aerosol stream allowing
you to perform an integral gravimetric analysis for custom
reference calibrations.
They can be zeroed automatically using the external zeroing
module. This optional accessory is used when sampling over
extended periods of time. By zeroing the monitor during
sampling, the effect of zero drift is minimized.
STEL alarm feature for tracking 15-minute average mass
concentrations when alarm setpoint has been reached for
applications like monitoring fugitive emissions at hazardous
waste sites.
Standard and advanced calibration capabilities. The DUSTTRAK
DRX Aerosol Monitor has two calibration factors: a photometric
calibration factor (PCF) and a size calibration factor (SCF). The
PCF accounts for the photometric response difference between
A1 Test Dust and the aerosol under measurement, while the SCF
accounts for the aerodynamic size difference.
OPC’s provide size and count information; however, they do not
provide any mass concentration information and cannot be used
in high mass concentration environments.
Easy to Program and Operate
The new graphical user interface with color touch-screen puts
everything at your fingertips. The easy-to-read display shows realtime mass concentration and graphical data as well as other
statistical information along with instrument pump, laser and flow
status, and much more. Perform quick walk-through surveys or
program the instrument’s advanced logging modes for long-term
sampling investigations. Program start times, total sampling times,
logging intervals, alarm setpoints and many other parameters. You
can even set up the instrument for continuous unattended operation.
– The primary goal of the standard calibration is to obtain the
SCF for the aerosol of interest. The standard calibration
process is very easy and does not require comparison to
gravimetric samples. Measure with and without a PM2.5
impactor, and the instrument takes the ratio of these two size
distributions and compares this reading to the PM2.5 impactor
transmission efficiency curve to calculate the SCF. However,
the absolute mass concentration may not be as accurate as
the advanced calibration.
– The advanced calibration method yields high size segregated
mass concentration accuracy. It involves two separate
gravimetric measurements to obtain PCF and SCF in
sequence. The advanced calibration will accurately measure
size segregated mass concentrations.
Handheld Models: Perfect for Walk-Through Surveys All Desktop Models
Hot swappable batteries
and Single-Point Data Collection Applications
DUSTTRAK DRX handheld models are lightweight and portable. They’re
perfect for industrial hygiene surveys, point source location monitoring,
indoor air quality investigations, engineering control evaluations /
validation, and for baseline trending and screening. Like desktop
models, they have manual and programmable data logging functions. In
addition, they have single-point data logging capability. Single-point
data collection is used for walk-through industrial hygiene surveys and
indoor air quality investigations.

New Software Makes Monitoring Easier than Ever
TRAKPRO™ Data Analysis Software allows you to set up and program
directly from a PC. A new feature is the ability for remote programming
and data acquisition from your PC via wireless (922 MHz or 2.4 GHz)
communications or over an Ethernet network. As always, you can print
graphs, raw data tables and statistical and comprehensive reports for
recordkeeping purposes.
