The DustMon RD 100 was designed to reliably determine the dustiness of granular products and powders.
The Dust Analyzer DustMon RD 100 characterizes the dustiness of powders and granulates and is an ideal system to measure the amount and concentration of dust. The analysis method offers a real-time measurement with up to 1000 measurements per second. All results will be stored and can be transferred into other databases such as Excel.
The DustMon RD 100 features two system operating modes:
Measures taken to avoid dust formation can be controlled with the DustMon RD 100 (see Screenshot):
The Y- axis shows the Dust concentration in percent, the X-axis shows the measurement time (typically 30 seconds per measurement) while the graph shows the result of three samples with a different amount of Dust: Very dusty (Yellow) | Less Dust (red) | Dust free (green)
RETSCH’s DustMon RD 100 consists of a dosing control system (sample beaker  with a valve and a tube , which is easily detachable for cleaning and transportation, a sample collector , a light source  and a detector .
The sample is poured into the sample beaker . On starting the measurement, the valve opens and the sample drops down the tube  into the sample collector .
The dust generated in the sample collector will be measured by the detector  and the resulting dust index will be displayed.
