Pollutant Meter / Environmental Tester.Pollutants in the air can massively affect well-being and health. Therefore, it is important to monitor the pollution of the air in the living spaces, in the workplace or in the public buildings. It can be done especially fast, precisely and comfortably with the pollutant meter from PCE Instruments. The pollutant measuring device can be multifunctional and was specially designed for measuring indoors.

The pollutant measuring device enables the effective and simple measurement of volatile organic compounds (TVOC), fine dust (PM1, PM2.5 and PM10), temperature, formaldehyde and relative humidity. The large LC display of the pollutant meter displays all the measured values and also has a date and time display. The battery level is visualized in the pollutant meter with a green bar in the upper part of the display. Via a USB interface, the pollutant measuring device can be charged or permanently connected to a power source during a long-term measurement.

The indoor air contaminated with the fine dust, formaldehyde or volatile organic compounds can cause headache, fatigue, respiratory irritation and other health problems. The quality of the indoor air can be monitored particularly comfortably via the large colour display of the pollutant meter.

Fine dust lurks everywhere, even in your own home. The tiny particles are invisible to the eye but nevertheless may have a toxic effect. The particulate matter load can be detected very effectively by the laser control with the pollutant meter from PCE Instruments. The pollutant measuring instrument offers a distinction between fine dust (PM10), fine dust (PM2.5) and ultrafine dust (PM1). The measuring range of the pollutant measuring device in this category is 0 to 999 μg / m³. Particulate matter of category PM1 is considered particularly harmful. These are ultrafine particles with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 0.1 microns. These smallest particles of the particulate matter are the easiest to enter the body through the respiratory tract.

Pollutant Meter / Environmental Tester 2.In addition, the pollutant meter precisely indicates the formaldehyde concentration (HCHO) in the room air. The measuring range is between 0 and 1,999 mg / m³. The pollutant gauge works with an electrochemical sensor to detect the formaldehyde concentration and additionally provides a convenient alarm function. The alarm limit can be set freely via the menu. There is also a possibility to easily perform a HCHO calibration. This is recommended at regular intervals to ensure the accuracy of the measurement results. At the touch of a button, the pollutant meter automatically performs the calibration.

For the measurement of the volatile organic compounds (TVOD), the pollutant meter has a measuring range of 0 to 9.999 mg / m³. In addition, the pollutant meter provides reliable information about the temperature (-10 degrees Celsius to +60 degrees Celsius) and the humidity (20 to 99 percent RH).

The determined values are displayed simultaneously on the large colour display of the pollutant measuring device. The measured values are visualized both graphically and numerically. Thus, the user has the info about the quality of the interior air quickly. Due to the data logger function, the last determined parameters can be viewed at any time.

Areas of application for pollutant measuring instruments

The pollutant meter works efficiently, is compact and flexible in use. It is therefore ideal for checking the quality of the air in different indoor areas, in the professional and private sectors. The pollutant meter does not differentiate between natural and artificial pollutant sources. The environmental measuring device registers all the pollutants present in the direct ambient air according to the measurable parameters. Its multiple functions and the ability to capture the multiple environmental parameters make the pollutant meter the ideal solution for factories, workplaces, schools, day care centres and home environment. The pollutant measuring device is also used in research and development.
