The 5014i is an advanced beta attenuation monitor (BAM) which can measure either PM10 or PM2.5. The unit has a smart sampling system to minimise the loss of semi volatiles and is currently expected to complete EU equivalence testing in 2013. The system runs on a single sample tape for up to six months unlike other models which only run for 2 months on a tape. Highly reliable and field proven with up to date electronics for remote control and maintenance make it the most advanced BAM on the market but at a price similar to older and less capable models.
The TEOM - FDMS monitor is EU Equivalent designated for both PM10 and PM2.5. Similar to the TEOM but equipped with an FDMS (Filter Dynamic Measurement System) to ensure the correct measurement of semi-volatile PM the unit requires no correction factors unlike other monitor technologies. The TEOM - FDMS is the preferred monitor of the UK AURN network and the new 1405 series has many design improvements making it easier to operate and more reliable. NOW WITH DEFRA, MCERTS AND TUV APPROVAL FOR PM10 AND PM2.5
The TEOM - FDMS Dichotomous monitor measures BOTH PM10 and PM2.5 simultaneously. A special inlet separates the fine and course fractions of airborne PM10 giving a smaller than PM2.5 and PM2.5 to PM10 fraction which combined give PM10. The unit offers the same FDMS measurement of the semi volatile fraction ensuring full EU Equivalent measurements without any need for correction factors. The 1405 Dichot can also be supplied without FDMS if required. NOW WITH DEFRA, MCERTS AND TUV APPROVAL FOR PM10 AND PM2.5 COMBINED
Based on advanced optical spectrometry FIDAS measures TSP, PM10, PM4, PM2.5, PM1 and particle count, size distribution, particle volume and surface area all in one compact instrument that can be used in existing air quality systems or as a stand alone monitor.

There is also a battery operated smaller portable version for indoor use. FIDAS has recently passed EU Equivalence requirements for PM10 and PM2.5.
The Aethlabs MicroAethalometer provides the ability to measure black carbon aerosol in almost any location. Based on the same technology as the network Aethalometers the AE51 provides similar levels of accuracy but in a battery operated package about the same size as a smartphone. It can run for up to 24 hours on its own power and for longer periods with an external battery pack or solar panel. Data is stored on the on board data logger and downlaoded to a PC via the inbuilt mini USB port. A range of accessories is also available.
The PDR is a compact personal dust monitor based on nephelometry, an optical method for detecting and quantifying particles in the air. The unit can be used handheld or worn on the waist using the integrated belt clip. It is compact and light and runs form its own internal batteries. Data can be downloaded to a PC using the cable supplied and free software is provided to help analyse and report the data. Different size fractions of dust can be measured by selecting one of several size selective inlets.
These are devices to sample airborne dust and aerosols rather than to provide real time monitoring. The samplers collect dust on a filter over time which can be weighed to determine the concentration of dust collected. The samples can also be used for chemical analysis and physical characterisation of the material collected. Several models and types are supplied including, manual filter change, automated filter change, high, medium and low flow and also systems specifically used to detect and quantify for course or "nuisance" dust. This is generally the material that is too large to be inhaled but can cause damage to surfaces, windows, cars etc but is unlikely to have any major health effects.
The TEOM measures the mass concentration of airborne particles by first principles using a mass frequency relationship. The unit gives fast direct mass concentration output and is highly reliable.The TEOM monitor can be used to provide EU Equivalent PM10 data using the Volatile Correction Model (VCM). The TEOM is widely used throughout the world and is often favoured over other monitors as it does not use any radioactive components and as the sample inlet is heated it can be used reliably in tropical climates where there are often high levels of moisture in the atmosphere.
