  • Air quality specialist calls for black carbon standard

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, believes that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Black Carbon (BC) is a term describing the fine particles that are produced as the result of incomplete combustion of fuels and ...

  • 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 ...
