ABSTRACT
Several factors influence the effects of solid aerosols in working environment.
These effects include particle size, chemical composition, concentration and
exposure of the particles. In this article we will focus on just one of these factors –
the concentration of particles. We will focus on monitoring the concentration of
inhalable fraction. We will use the device MicroDust Pro. The main advantage of
this equipment is that it allows the real-time detection of airborne dusts. This
ability will be used during the experimental measurements to identify the main
sources of solid aerosols.

Keywords: solid aerosol, real-time monitoring, optical principles.
