Compact solutions for measuring concentration of dust (PM2.5, PM10) and harmful gas (CO, NO, NO2, SO2, O3, H2S) in the air with an online visualization system.
Air pollution is both environmental and social problem as it has negative impact on human health, ecosystems, the environment and the climate. Air pollution is the largest single environmental threat to human health in Europe. Air pollutants are emitted from anthropogenic and natural sources; they can be transported or set up over great distances and can affect large areas. Some air pollutants persist in the environment for long periods and can accumulate in the environment and in the food chain, affecting humans and animals not only through air contamination, but also through water and food.
Thus, air pollution is a complex problem that creates many management and mitigation problems. Effective action to reduce air pollution requires good understanding of the sources causing it, as well as knowledge of the current state of air quality and its impact on people and ecosystems.
Environmental Monitoring is a system for measuring, assessing and forecasting the state of the environment as well as collecting, processing and disseminating information on the state of the environment. The sources of pollutant emissions are in most cases very dispersed (solid fuel stoves, the so-called “smoke” stoves, industry, or combustion vehicles).
An important element of air quality monitoring is a dense measurement network with online data presentation, which allows to detect local exceedances of dust and gas concentrations. This allows residents to make informed decisions regarding the choice of the optimal (in terms of air purity) route to work at the moment, will allow you to check whether jogging along your favorite route will harm your body more than help, or allow you to check whether the child should be playing at the moment outside or at home.
The SPM1A suspended dust sensor is an instrument used to measure particles with a diameter of up to 1, 2.5, 4.0 and 10 μm. The device measures the attenuation of laser light scattered on the test sample at an angle of 90 °. Each sensor is equipped with a heating system that optimizes the temperature and humidity of the air sample, ensuring accurate measurement in all weather conditions and in all seasons. In addition, it has an auto-detection module that analyzes and verifies the correctness of the measured data and signals sensor failure.
The device is fully compatible with PM ECOLOGY data loggers with online access to measurement data.
The gas measuring matrix produced by PM ECOLOGY is a compact device used to detect the concentration of 6 gases that pollute the air:
The measuring device uses accurate electrochemical sensors that measure the concentration of each gas starting at 100 ppb. In addition, it is equipped with a digital compensation system for the influence of humidity and temperature, and algorithms that optimize the measurement result based on the correlation and response of all sensors to a given pollution.
The gas measurement matrix is fully compatible with the data loggers manufactured by PM ECOLOGY with online access to measurement data.
