PPM Technology (UK) have recently completed a major deal to supply formaldehyde detection instruments to health authorities in China. PPM have supplied 120 of their hand-held instruments for detection of formaldehyde in the air – the Formaldemeter htv.
The instruments will be supplied to the Government Procurement Office of Shan Xi Province. As well as this tender, PPM have also received an order for 60 instruments from their distributors in China - Science International.
The Far East has been PPM's biggest market for a number of years, thanks in part to legislation introduced which demanded monitoring of formaldehyde levels in many industries and workplaces.
Over the last decade PPM have succeeded in finding markets throughout Asia, with many of their key markets now in the region. PPM are doing business in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and China, which collectively accounts for between 50-60% of their overall business.
PPM Technology's Formaldemeter htv is able to accurately measure airborne formaldehyde concentrations as well as ambient temperature and humidity levels. They’ve also developed a continuous monitoring instrument, the Formaldemeter htv-m can accurately monitor formaldehyde concentrations in real-time for up to 1 month.
Overexposure to airborne formaldehyde is dangerous to health, but the risks can be substantially reduced if levels are regularly measured and monitored.
PPM have also introduced a range of multi-parameter Indoor Air Quality monitoring devices, The Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor can contain sensors for a maximum of 7 customer specified IAQ parameters. The Mini IAQ Profile Monitor can contain a maximum of 5 sensors. Both these instruments send the collected IAQ data wirelessly to the control pc/laptop in real-time, a large number of units can be networked together to enable accurate monitoring of an entire building.
