Ambient Particulate Monitoring

Ensure safe, clean air free of harmful particulate matter

Continuously and reliably monitor particulates in ambient air using advanced technology.   Measure critical regulatory parameters including  PM-10 and PM-2.5 mass concentration as it exists in ambient air. Offering a Filter Dynamics Measurement System (FDMS) and a Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM) mass sensor, many instruments are housed in a single cabinet, are network-ready and include a touch screen user interface.  Our portable instruments offer dual wavelength nephelometer technology allowing for monitoring and logging of real-time concentrations and median particle sizes of airborne dust, smoke, mist and fumes.

We offer continuous air particulate monitoring systems that allow you to take continuous direct mass measurements of particulates, simultaneously measure PM Fine, PM Coarse, and PM-10 mass concentrations, measure atmospheric black carbon, and more.

We offer a range of solutions for the simultaneous collection of high quality samples of fine and coarse ambient particulate matter (PM), including systems that allow you to meet monitoring requirements (i.e., PM-2.5, PM-10 and other particulate sampling methods) and a system that permits up to two weeks of unattended daily sampling.

Our range of personal and portable particulate monitoring systems includes those for sampling wet or dry particulates, for the analysis of biological aerosols, and for personal dust monitoring for mining applications.
