Silica Analyzer by PerkinElmer

Constant exposure to silica dust, a class 1 human carcinogen, harms a miner’s health and future life. Traditional analytical methods are inefficient, costly, and labor-consuming, and they take weeks to get exposure data due to constantly moving work locations in different geological layers with varied quantities of silica.

Rapid, on-site, and non-destructive measurement of respirable crystalline silica (RCS) deposited on PVC sample filters is made possible by the PerkinElmer Silica Analyzer. With the help of the Field Analysis of Silica Tool (FAST) software, gather all pertinent and essential data in one place and immediately communicate it among devices to address overexposures as soon as they occur.


Site operation and safety managers require current, trustworthy, and actionable information to avoid overexposing workers to silica dust. Even in remote locations, they need short turnaround times not limited by the sampling site.

The Silica Analyzer system has several benefits, including:

  • Fast turnaround times and high sample throughput allow for a flexible response to an ever-changing work environment
  • Simple and reproducible analysis requires no sample preparation
  • Make sure the data is effective and relevant from the start
  • The analysis is inexpensive
  • Analysis that is powerful and can move across places
