Scanning Electron Microscopy

The Environmental Analysis Associates, Inc. (EAA) dust analysis method provides the simultaneous analysis of particle size, mass, and exposure concentrations, and is specifically designed for industrial hygiene applications. The method is made possible by integrating the use of new, high-speed silicon drift (SDD) X-ray detectors, industry-recognized automated particle analysis software, and interpretation software developed directly by EAA.

For the first time, the particle size distribution, mass distribution, and chemistry of complex air and dust samples can be simultaneously collected and classified into a profile of probable emission sources. Data collection that used to take an entire day (or more) can now be acquired economically within 20-30 minutes. This service is not available anywhere else in the industry.
