fine dust monitoring

Real-time fine dust monitor for measuring and monitoring indoor and outdoor air quality

As it is harmful to breathe in fine dust, limit values were defined for the EU in 1999 for the mass concentrations PM10 and PM2.5. However, the penetration depth of the particles into the airways depends to a large extent on the particle diameter.

As Palas® is the market-leading manufacturer of optical aerosol spectrometers, it was the obvious step in 2010 to develop and build an optical fine dust measuring device that would be capable not only of supplying the PM values PMtotal, PM10, PM4.0, PM2.5 and PM1. The Fidas® systems also supply the corresponding particle size distribution in the measurement range from 0.18 to 18 µm for every interesting point in time.
The new Fidas® fine dust monitoring systems can be calibrated on site or via Ethernet. Thanks to their outstanding advantages, these devices are now used successfully all around the world.
The comparison of the generated dust content, e.g. during the filling of powders, can be performed clearly, reproducibly and particularly cost-effectively with the new DustView II.
