The portable Room Pressure Logger (RPL-10P) performs the same primary function of a wall-mounted RPL-10 — continuous monitoring and logging of differential pressure between adjacent spaces — with the convenience of a durable, portable case for use on construction sites. It operates on battery power or plus into a wall outlet. When using battery power, turn off the display backlight to prolong battery life. The unit complies with USP 797, OSHPD, CDC and CAG 003 guidelines.
As you may have heard, changes are afoot in the world of bio-safety cabinet testing. As of April 15, 2016, direct-connected Type A cabinets or canopy- connected Type A cabinets will not be eligible for NSF field certification without a functioning airflow alarm, regardless of a customer’s request.

Many of HSE’s customers who test and certify bio-safety cabinets have found the TEL AFA 500-BSC (right) to be an ideal solution for facilities that need to add an airflow alarm to an existing cabinet. Instead of the post-mounted SM6 airflow sensor used for TEL fume hood alarms, the AFA-500 BSC is connected to a velocity probe that is installed in the exhaust duct above the cabinet’s transition collar. HSE provides a 3-by-3-inch galvanized steel square mounting plate. The sensor works best when installed in the center of the duct with the sensor holes be positioned in the direction of the airflow.
In addition, a mounting box for the monitor panel is available at no extra cost.
The AFA 500-BSC utilizes a single-point, pushbutton calibration process. During calibration, the monitor takes an airflow sample and then sets its alarm point at a 20 percent reduction of the measured velocity.
As with all TEL products for HSE, many companies qualify for both the reseller and volume discounts, the latter of which starts with 10 units on a single order. Additional discounts are available for customers who pay with purchase order and/or bank funds.
Every spring, Holland Safety Equipment supports the professionals of the Controlled Environment Testing Association by exhibiting at the organization’s annual conference.
At this year’s meeting in Las Vegas, HSE staffed an exhibit floor booth and again represented its suite of products during the manufacturer’s update session, an intimate discussion of the goods HSE offers to its customers throughout North America.
There were nearly 300 international attendees at the 24th annual conference, including certifiers, safety professionals, industrial hygienists, facility engineers, quality control personnel and more. The conference spans five days including directors’ meetings, professional exams, rules committee discussions, presentations on regulatory issues and design standards as well as social time.
HSE plans to participates in CETA’s 25th annual conference in April 2017 in Tampa, Fla. For information on CETA, visit cetainternational.org.
