  • Monitor Viable Air with Single-Use, Real-Time Tech

    Viable air monitoring is a crucial part of an environmental monitoring program. Because common viable air monitoring methodologies have not been introduced in many years, monitoring in critical manufacturing areas like Grade A, RABS and isolators creates a dilemma for the industry. Traditional methods lack the necessary sensitivity. Singular results only provide an indicator of cleanroom status; ...

  • Air quality Monitors Track Pollution Hot-Spots

    Situated in the south west of Wales, in a largely rural area bordering the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire’s air quality is predominantly good. However, there are areas of concern where major roads pass through some of the County’s larger towns, including Llanelli, Carmarthen and Llandeilo, where air quality is dominated by the effects of road traffic. The County Council is therefore ...

  • Black Carbon – the elephant in the room!

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, in this article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, will demonstrate that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Air Monitors has supplied most of the UK's ambient monitoring network, but Jim will explain why the ...

  • Is the Rotameter Ready for Retirement in Air Sampling/Monitoring Applications?

    The variable area rotameter has been the primary tool utilized for determination of flowrates passing through the air circuitry pathway of air sampling or air monitoring systems for many years. In air sampling applications a pollutant is captured on a collection medium (filter paper, charcoal cartridge, etc.) and taken to a laboratory for determination of the quantity of pollutant on the ...

  • Estimation of number of deaths associated with exposure to excess ambient PM10 air pollution

    The respirable particle matter (PM10) concentration in urban areas has been a chronic cause concern and principal reason for increased morbidity rate among resident population. The present study aimed at estimating a discrete event like mortality rate associated and attributable to excess particulate matter pollution in the Kathmandu Valley area. The Government of Nepal conducts air monitoring of ...

  • Analysis of local concentration gradients in complex built environments: implications for Air Quality Management Areas

    This paper reviews the existing guidance on placement of permanent air quality monitoring stations within urban areas and suggests the principles for a new, performance-based guidance. An integrated air quality model has been developed and validated for the designated Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) located in Glasgow City Centre to analyse the importance of local concentration gradients on ...
