PPM Technology had a trade stand and representative at the recent International Panel Products Symposium (IPPS) held in Llandudno, North Wales.
IPPS is the leading technical conference on wood based panels, including all aspects of panel production technology, feedstocks, resins and additives, market analysis and the use of wood based panels in furniture and construction applications.
Amongst the topics discussed where Formaldehyde resins. Formaldehyde is often used in the manufacture of adhesive resin that acts as glue in the manufacture of pressed wood products.
Anyone involved in the manufacturing process of wood based panel products could be exposed to formaldehyde. Unless due care and attention is given formaldehyde emissions can reach dangerously levels at panel mills production lines.
The event attracted industry delegates from around the world; many of whom where interested in formaldehyde detection and safety.
PPM Technology has significant experience in the design and development of instruments for accurate detection and measurement of Formaldehyde.
Our Formaldemeter range of instruments has been in existence for over 10 years. We continuously develop and improve the instruments to achieve better performance and features. Our latest instruments are the Formaldemeter htV-m and htV.
The Formaldemeter htV-m is able to accurately detect and monitor formaldehyde, temperature and humidity in real-time. It can be used as a manual hand-held instrument or as a continuous monitoring device capable of up to one month of data-logging. The htV-M can precisely measure formaldehyde concentrations in parts per million (ppm) and mg/m3 over a wide range of temperature and humidity. The built in memory and real time clock enables the htV-m to log all 3 parameters and corresponding times, allowing improved monitoring and analysis opportunities.
The Formaldemeter htV is a manual hand-held instrument, which can take instantaneous single-point measurements of Formaldehyde, Temperature and Humidity.
PPM Technology’s standard hand held formaldehyde detectors are able to measure in the range of 0-10ppm, it is now possible for the user to change the settings and monitor for much higher concentrations of Formaldehyde up to approximately 90ppm.
