  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Only 10 reasons to buy AQMesh?

    That’s what we thought, but here’s another one: it was designed as a practical monitoring tool. AQMesh's relatively tiny size means that on top of its proven accuracy, users can benefit from its neat ergonomics and complete practicality. But why else would you buy AQMesh? No other commercially available outdoor air quality monitor can demonstrate the same level ...

  • Air quality assessment in the EU: room for improvement?

    Different modelling approaches are used to design and assess air quality plans across Europe. This study assessed the strengths and weaknesses of these different approaches. The researchers conclude that a large variety of models is in use, without a preferred or standard model having emerged yet. They identify integrating local-scale and large-scale models and verifying models with measurements ...

  • Dynamic Air Quality Solutions - Celebrating Thirty Years!

    This year we are very pleased to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the first one-inch polarized-media electronic air cleaner. It was thirty years ago that the first polarized-media electronic air cleaner, produced under our “Dynamic Air Cleaner” brand, was introduced. As with many high-efficiency filtration products, polarized media has its roots in industrial applications. ...

  • Work when others sleep – service on the runway

    When asking our quality manager Hartmut Schneider, which kind of projects are the most spectacular ones in his opinion, he’d answer: airport projects. In the following he reports on the general challenges during runway sensor acceptance tests… On large international airports, it can take several years until an installation and acceptance of embedded road sensors such as the ...

  • Modeling Tip: Using Ozone File Editor Tools in BREEZE AERMOD

    To model 1-hour and annual concentrations of NO2 for the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS), the U.S. EPA has approved a three-tiered approach as detailed in Section 5.2.4 of EPA’s Guideline on Air Quality Models, Appendix W to 40 CFR Part 511 (Appendix W). This approach, as shown below, is recommended to estimate the ambient concentrations of ...

  • From air conditioning to urban planning, defaults and standards create dysfunction by design

    How can we stop outdated assumptions from forcing us to waste? Personal heaters are a summer survival tool for many office workers chilled to the bone by hyperactive ventilation systems — an act of self-defense against an epidemic of overcooling that is wasting energy and confounding comfort in not only offices but also large shops, schools and other buildings. An audit ...

  • Chromatotec monitor air quality in Arcachon Bay through its own air quality station

    Chromatotec® made this summer the inauguration of its private monitoring station in Andernos-les-Bains. With a wealth of experience, thanks to which it already deployed massively its systems around the world, the group wanted to implement its own monitoring station to have complementary information to the actual air quality network. These data will allow the group to extend its ...

  • On the ionization of air for removal of noxious effluvia” (Air ionization of indoor environments for control of volatile and particulate contaminants with nonthermal plasmas generated by dielectric-barrier discharge)

    Abstract Recent developments in the application of controllable air ionization processes that apply dielectric-barrier discharge devices to generate nonthermal plasmas have led to applications for chemical and biological decontamination in indoor air environments. These include significant reductions in airborne microbials, neutralization of odors, and reductions of specific volatile ...

  • Quality compressed breathing air really is a matter of life and death

    When some of the Analox team visited West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service it became even more apparent how important it is to undertake accurate and consistent checks on breathing apparatus. We were shown training facilities where firefighters are put in real-life situations in order to equip them with the experience to deal with whatever ...
