  • TSI Inc. to provide ultrafine particle monitoring during 2008 Olympics

    TSI Incorporated’s Ultrafine Particle (UFP) Monitor started monitoring Beijing air in early August 2008. The world’s first purpose-designed-and-built ultrafine particle monitoring system, the UFP Monitor is providing a continuous record of number concentration and particle size of these potentially toxic ultrafine particles before and during the Olympic Games. The monitoring will be supervised by ...

  • Air Monitors launches nanoparticle detector

    Traditional methods for measuring airborne particulate matter measure particle mass per unit air volume, usually with an upper size limit of x microns (PMx etc.). However, from a human health perspective, the particles of most interest are those that penetrate deep into the lungs. For this reason, Air Monitors has launched the Naneos Partector nanoparticle detector in the UK. The Swiss made ...

  • New particulate monitors will improve understanding of health effects

    Globally, fine dust particles have been the focus of much greater attention in recent months as their role in deaths related to poor air quality becomes better understood. However, knowledge of the relationship between airborne particles and health effects is limited by the information that can be obtained by monitoring technologies. Jim Mills, a particulate monitoring specialist from Air ...

  • ASTM D6552 - 06(2011) standard practice for controlling and characterizing errors in weighing collected aerosols

    The weighing of collected aerosol is one of the most common and purportedly simple analytical procedures in both occupational and environmental atmospheric monitoring (for example, Test Method D4532 or D4096). Problems with measurement accuracy occur when the amount of material collected is small, owing both to balance inaccuracy and variation in the weight of that part of the sampling medium ...
