Monitoring respirable silica at workplace

In this case study, we compare the performance of Malvern Panalytical Aeris compact 600W diffractometer to Empyrean floor-standing 1.8 kW diffractometer equipped with advanced optical beam path. We show that both instruments deliver the sensitivity required for compliance with existing RCS regulations, albeit in different measurement times. Furthermore, we discuss the influence of the sample preparation method and sample analysis time on the limits of detection and quantification, and we give an example of the working respirable α-quartz quantification method following the ISO 16258-1 standard using Aeris 600 W diffractometer.
