Cabin Pressure Monitoring
Vehicle cabins are a critical control, isolating operators from harmful airborne dusts in the outside environment. To ensure cabins are working to protect workers, they require regular maintenance. Generally, this involves regularly replacing seals, cabin filters and maintaining positive pressure within the cabin. Testing the effectiveness of seals and the air-conditioning system requires the plant to be parked up for additional maintenance time.
By measuring air pressure inside versus outside of the cabin, you can determine how effective the cabin is at controlling dust from entering the cabin. This is a recognised method that can replace traditional subjective cabin testing with an objective, real-time solution that informs planned maintenance.
Information on how the cabin performs is also valuable for informing personal exposure monitoring exceedance investigations.
