|Continuous monitoring of 'solvent-in-air' levels for peace of mind to the dry cleaner and their staff.
The principal solvents used in the Dry Cleaning industry are tetrachloroethylene (most commonly known as perchloroethylene) and hydrocarbon (petroleum based) solvents. These solvents may pose serious environmental and occupational health and safety hazards. Aeroqual monitors can detect primary and secondary sources of solvent exposure including solvent spills; emissions during machine operation; fugitive leaks from piping and tanks; off-gasing from cleaned clothing; and vapors from spotting agents. Aeroqual monitors are used in the United States by air quality inspectors and dry cleaners to comply with statutory regulations. Aeroqual monitors provide dry cleaners with affordable peace of mind that their facilities are safe environments for themselves, their workers and their customers. The SM70 Monitor/Controller provides continuous air monitoring; it displays the level of solvent in the air and sounds an alarm at exposure level. It is a reliable and simple unit to operate and is available for either perc or hydrocarbon monitoring.
