DUST FALL MONITORING UNPACKED

KCM Environmental works with government, industry and private agencies offering sustainable solutions for dust fallout management and monitoring, ensuring you mitigate risks of not being compliant with current and future environmental legislation.

What is dust fallout monitoring?

Dust fall monitoring is a cost-effective method for identifying priority control areas and deviations that result in excessive dust emissions. Monitoring takes place over a 30-day period, and the results can then be compared to the national standard. The process can be carried out over a period of a few months; however, usually dust fall monitoring runs over at least a year, if not a few years 

What equipment is used to measure dust fallout?

Dust fall is measured using special dust fall sampling equipment, also known as dust fall buckets. These are mounted off the ground on stands to ensure that surface dust does not interfere with the monitoring process and impact the results of the dust fallout measurement.
