The Pinssar Solution
Stay ahead with the only practical solution for managing your diesel emission strategies.
Our proven, reliable and ultra-low maintenance solution delivers consistent insights to enable you to manage your diesel emissions in underground environments and confined spaces.
Ultimately, no one wants to see DPM exposure become one of the great social disasters like lead, coal dust and asbestos.

The Pinssar solution was specifically developed to provide DPM data on a continuous, 24/7 basis to work in conjunction with current static solutions.
Our solution comprises
The data captured by this flexible solution is compatible with your control system architecture and all ventilation simulation software.
All particles smaller than 0.8 micron, or 800 nanometres (nm).
A carcinogenic is a compound or physical factor as assessed by IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) and are classified in four groups based on the existing scientific evidence for carcinogenicity.
In 2012, DPM was classified by IARC as a Group 1 carcinogenic, which is the most severe classification and in the same category as asbestos.
IARC defines a Group 1 carcinogenic as: “Carcinogenic to humans” when there is enough evidence to conclude that it can cause cancer in humans.
Pinssar has a registered patent in the USA for 23 unique innovations with patent pending in other regions throughout the world.
The Pinssar solution is currently used by progressive companies all around the world. Featuring heavily in the underground mining industry and construction (tunnelling) projects, other applications include workshops, shipping and anywhere where diesel engine exhaust may be present in confined spaces.
The Pinssar DPR was developed from the ‘ground up’ – specifically designed to overcome the known issues when monitoring sub 1micron particles in harsh environments. The particle size range for DPM is less than 800 nanometers (nm). Other air monitoring technology measures particle size ranges larger than this, or require considerable maintenance efforts to maintain operability in harsh environments.
Pinssar’s products are designed, developed and manufactured in Australia.
The Pinssar DPR uses a commercially-available NIOSH-tested cyclone inlet which provides a sharp cut point at 800nm equivalent aerodynamic diameter (EAD), even in atmospheres contaminated with high >3mg/m3 respirable particles.
