TSI QUESTemp Series Heat Stress Monitors formerly by 3M, are designed as a tool to manage heat stress in the workplace to avoid heat exhaustion, rash, severe thirst, fainting and heat stroke. The instruments calculate Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) the standard parameter in heat stress measurement which takes into account several factors to determine the actual heat stress on personnel. These include temperature, humidity, wind speed (chill factor), plus radiation heat sources from equipment or the sun.
This HSE article provides more detail on heat stress and the symptoms with steps an individual can take for prevention.
QT32, QT34 and QT36 are supplied with the following wet bulb, dry bulb, globe and relative humidity sensors. The QT36 can have an optional Air Velocity Probe added.
QUESTemp° models QT34 and Q36 have data logging capability readings can be retrieved, analysed and used with Quest Detection Management Software a standard platform compatible with other detection instruments.
- Establish if heat stress guidance is needed
- Optimise work and rest routines
- Ascertain Head-Torso-Ankle weighted average WBGT requires additional tri-sensors
- Suitable for use indoors or outdoors, ingress protection IP54
- Disposable batteries 140-hour operation or NiMH rechargeable battery 300 hours
- Durably designed for challenging environments and regular use.
When switching units on ten minutes needs to be allowed for sensor stabilization, the monitor should be placed around 3.5 feet off the ground.
