Air pollutants such as smoke, chemicals, dust, or allergens aren’t always visible. Tiny airborne particulates are mainly dangerous because they can penetrate into the lungs and potentially cause chronic and acute health effects.
Pollution can affect air quality across a region, but can it can be localized to a community, neighborhood or even a single building as well.
As mentioned earlier, particulates, or more exactly Particulate Matter (PM), are a mix of liquid droplets and solid particles suspended in the air.
Particulate matter with a diameter of 10 μm or less (PM10) can have harmful effects on human health and the environment.
Therefore, for countries which are committed to reducing PM10 emissions; it is necessary to have instruments that accurately estimate PM10 concentrations for reporting and monitoring purposes.
Again, particulates can be a health hazard for those who are exposed to them over a long period of time; if not properly managed.
Particulates can take many forms including aerosols, dry bulk foodstuffs, aggregates, silica dust and wood fibers.
Whenever there is a need to investigate contaminants in the air ambient air or environmental air sampling is done.
There are typical situations which require environmental sampling equipment; such as testing of hazardous waste sites and airemissions from industry and indoor air quality.
Felixtrument supplies a complete range of innovative dust monitors and direct reading instruments for monitoring particulates for environmental monitoring, workplace exposure and personal exposure which covers an extensive range of sophisticated ambient monitor for 24 hour sampling.
Therefore, if you are in need of any Environmental Sampling or Particulate Monitors instruments; you may browse through our various particulate monitoring and sampling devices to find the one which best suits your needs.
