NIR controls the danger zone
The microPHAZIR Asbestos is the first near infrared (NIR) handheld analyser for a fast on-site screening and the identification of asbestos-containing materials.
With a weight of only 1.2 kg and a very easy handling, this microPHAZIR allows the analysis of many measuring points in a very short time, thus reducing lab costs.
The microPHAZIR Asbestos saves sampling and reduces lab costs.
- Fast instrument instruction.
- Just aim and start measurement with the push of a button.
- Data storage in the instrument.
- Robust, easy to handle and ergonomic.
- LCD colour display with intuitive usability.
- Lithium-ion battery with more than 5 hours of operating time.
- No laser-related safety regulations.
- Non-destructive and safe analysis done by light.
Areas of application
Thanks to its many versatile properties, asbestos has been used for:
- heat protective clothing, fire protection panels, sprayed materials, paintings, floor coverings (PVC), sealants, brake pads, clutch linings,
- asbestos-cement products (panels, pipes, corrugated sheets, plant containers, ventilation ducts), adhesives, sealants, putties, asbestos boards,
- older electronic devices (flat-irons, toasters, electric grills, hair dryers, carbon arc lamps, thermocouples, temperature measurement resistors, high power resistors, heating resistors, high voltage fuse elements, etc.)
