PPM have recently supplied a number of Mini IAQ Profile Monitors to Joel Anderson of Precision Quality Consulting in a project to monitor air quality in a indoor ice rink; the aim being to provide a safe environment for users and employees of ice arenas.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is a significant concern in ice rinks and arenas; these facilities are especially vulnerable to the affect of an unhealthy indoor environment as fuel-burning equipment such as ice resurfaces are used indoors.
The parameters commonly monitored in ice rinks/arenas are temperature, relative humidity and also carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. The monitoring unit is installed in the ice rinks 'scorer’s box'; the monitor continuously receives air samples from the rink, readings are transmitted in real-time to the office computer which stores the readings on easily read graphs.
Multiple alarm levels are available to activate exhaust fans, dehumidification systems, or signal an auto dialer. Energy savings can be achieved by operating the exhaust system more efficiently.
The Mini IAQ Monitor is now recognized by the Minnesota Health Department, as an instrument suitable for monitoring air quality in this environment.
PPM Technology’s range of IAQ instruments include the Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor it 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.
Our newest instrument is the 'Touch Screen' IAQ Profile Monitor it is a stand-alone IAQ monitoring unit, capable of continuously monitoring up to 7 IAQ parameters. It is built with an integrated 3.5” ‘touch screen’ panel, which allows the user to navigate through the various sensors simply by touching the display panel.
- Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
- Carbon Monoxide (CO)
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
- Sulphur Dioxide (SO2)
- Ozone (O3)
- Ammonia (NH3)
- Methane (CH4)
- Chlorine (CL)
- Water (H20)
*Other sensor options may be available on request.
Controlling and monitoring these IAQ parameters would improve occupant comfort and work efficiency as well as their immediate and long-term health.
