Enhanced Thermal Environment Monitor
Oconomowoc, Wisconsin (April 1, 2002) -- Quest Technologies' announced today the premier monitor within the QUESTemp Series of Heat Stress and Thermal Environmental Monitors -- the QUESTemp 36.
Heat Stress can affect the quality of life, and can jeopardize the safety and productivity of affected workers as well as those around them. The datalogging QUESTemp 36 further simplifies heat stress management efforts by providing users with real time guidance on stay times and work/rest regimens. Guidance is based on screening criteria for heat stress as defined in the ACGIH TLV Handbook, U.S. Navy PHEL Charts and EPRI Action Items. The QUESTemp 36 eliminates the need to carry paper charts, pocket guides and look-up tables into the field.
An optional detachable probe for measuring air velocity extends the applications for the QUESTemp 36 beyond traditional heat stress measurements. The QUESTemp 36 can be used as an indoor thermal comfort monitor using the air velocity probe, temperature and RH sensor reading simultaneously. Other applications include verification of air flow in fume hoods or rooms normally requiring a minimum amount of air flow to be safe for occupancy.
