CASELLA TO DISPLAY NEW PRODUCTS AT GERMAN A&A EXHIBITION

Casella CEL Ltd, the UK's leading manufacturer of workplace monitoring technologies including noise, dust, gas and indoor air quality, will exhibit two new products at the A&A Exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany (18 - 21 September 2007). The new instruments include the Apex Lite – the latest addition to the market leading Apex Personal Sampling Pump range for measuring dusts, fumes, gases, vapours and VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) - and the new ATEX approved, Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) CEL-350 dBadge personal noise monitor for use in flammable atmospheres.

Apex Lite
The new Apex Lite is a dry-cell battery pack standby unit without the need for rechargeable battery downtime – simply insert 4 x AA cell batteries, calibrate and the pump is ready for action. In addition to offering the same operational specification as the Apex standard units, the Apex Lite also benefits from a toughened LCD screen for operation in harsh environments, inlet foam filters to prevent dust ingress, a rubberized finish to aid cleaning and provide additional protection and extended operation run times due to dry cell higher voltages.

I.S. CEL-350 dBadge
The new I.S. version of the CEL-350 dBadge measures all occupational noise parameters and is ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. It is versatile due to being cable free, is totally reliable due to the digital technology used and is ahead of its time with a robust, small and lightweight (68g) ergonomic design. It can also store the time history of an individual’s noise exposure throughout the day. The dBadge has integral NiMH batteries that give an unprecedented 32 hours of operation, and can be recharged in under 90 minutes using the intelligent charging system.

Other Casella CEL products on display at the exhibition will include:

I.S. Apex
A personal and area sampling pump for dust, fumes, gases, vapours and VOC’s in potentially explosive atmospheres. Samples can then be sent to laboratories for weighing and analysis. This easy to use, versatile and robust pump is fully compliant with both UL 913 ANSI and ATEX 100 standards (directive 94/9/EC).

Microdust Pro
A portable real-time aerosol/dust monitor for assessing concentrations of suspended particulate matter. It has a real time numerical graphical display, ideal for instant walk through surveys and an integral logger for allowing all data runs to be stored, downloaded and analysed using the graphical software package. As well as having a wide measurement range (0-2500mg/m³), this monitor can be used for real time presentation and analysis purposes. It also has a versatile, removable sampling probe. It comes with universal mains with UK, USA and Euro adapters, 4x rechargeable batteries, download software and cable, zero calibration bellows and span calibration insert.

Portable Automatic Nomad weather station
This is a high spec monitoring system designed for ease of transportation, rapid deployment and quality measurement. Sensors include wind speed and direction, temperature and humidity, rainfall, barometric pressure and solar radiation.

Casella products will be displayed in Hall 6, Stand A14.
