From site remediation monitoring to health effects studies to construction/demolition projects, the pDR-1500 provides the power and flexibility to provide both real-time results and gravimetric validation. At 41 oz., it's as easy to wear it on the belt as it is to run it in a fixed location.

Capable of compensating for all typical environmental variables, the pDR-1500 is outfitted for relative humidity compensation, true volumetric flow, pressure compensation and legacy pDR nephelometry technology. The pDR-1500 aerosol monitor also features interchangeable cyclones for superior particle-cut points available for PM10 & PM4 or PM2.5 & PM1, as well as an integrated sample filter that enables post-gravimetric validation of all data.
