PPM Technology supplies wireless units for monitoring the air in indoor swimming pools
Our Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor system is currently being demonstrated in an indoor swimming pool environment; the units contained sensors for Temperature, Humidity, Chlorine, Ammonia, Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide.
Chlorine products are used in swimming pools to prevent growth and spread of bacteria and viruses. Nitrogen pollution is produced from organic derivatives. (sweat, urine) The combination of the Cl2 & N2 containing compounds reacting together can produce Trichloramine (NCl3). NCl3 can produce the same effect as Tear gas and is found in dangerous levels in indoor pools.
We are confident this is the first of many instruments we will supply for the indoor pool market. We are working with our long-standing distributors Tennants Distribution Ltd; they specialise in chemicals and testing kits used in swimming pools; with their expertise in the field we are confident there will be considerable opportunities for the product in this environment.
The Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor system is a integrated wireless system for monitoring multiple indoor air quality (IAQ) parameters, including but not limited to -
- Carbon Dioxide
- Carbon Monoxide
- Nitrogen Dioxide
- Sulphur Dioxide
There are currently two instrument models available, the full-size IAQ Monitor (containing up to 7 sensors) and the Mini IAQ Monitor (Up to 5 sensors). A large number of monitoring units can be networked together to enable complete monitoring of an entire building. Each monitoring can come with unique sensor options if necessary.
One unit is connected to the controller PC; the PPMonitor sofware allows the entire wireless system to be managed from a single PC, the PC can pre-set a number of different exposure levels to trigger when limits are exceeded; these could be visible or audible alarms or to control 3rd party systems such as ventilation systems. The software enables the data to be viewed graphically, produce reports and statistical data.
The wireless system can be placed in almost any building or indoor space where air quality needs to be monitored and controlled, including;
- Hospitals and other care facilities.
- Laboratories, Clean-rooms and Research facilities.
- Cultivation farms and the industrial agriculture sector.
- Museums, galleries, cultural preservation environments.
- Office Buildings and work environments
- Industrial Plants and Factories.
- Residential Buildings, educational facilities and other public buildings.
- Ice Rinks and Arenas.
- Indoor swimming pools.
In order to accurately understand a building’s indoor air quality, it is advised to simultaneously monitor various Indoor Air Quality parameters including gases, temperature and humidity. PPM Technology’s Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor enables instantaneous monitoring of a number of parameters within a single instrument.
