Latest instruments designed for the reliable and accurate monitoring of indoor air quality in homes, schools, offices, hospitals, labs & airports
AcSoft Health & Safety (tel: 01234 639550; www.airsampling.co.uk) – leading specialist in monitoring instrumentation for occupational health and the environment – is targeting the facilities management industry with its range of reliable and accurate Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Monitors from Pennsylvania-based E Instruments.
Aimed at facilities managers and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals, these portable, handheld IAQ monitors offer real-time continuous data logging for a wide variety of buildings, namely homes, schools, offices, hospitals, laboratories and airports.
The models available in this key range are AQ Comfort, AQ PRO and AQ VOC. All boast a lightweight, durable design and provide real-time data logging for graphs, data analysis and easy reporting. They also incorporate Bluetooth for wireless communication with a PC and printer.
Depending on the model, the portable, handheld IAQ monitors measure CO2, CO, VOC, NO2, O3, humidity, temperature, air velocity, air flow, and barometric pressure. The AQ VOC instrument provides dynamic photoionisation detection (PID) volatile organic compound (VOC) sensor technology which is capable of detecting 0-20,000 parts per billion (PPB) and 0-200 parts per million (PPM).
Standard features of the range include active internal sampling pump, easy-to-use menu system, Li-ion rechargeable battery and large internal memory, whilst optional extras comprise wireless printer, handheld probe and protective rubber boot.
Paul Rubens, General Manager at AcSoft Health & Safety, comments: “Indoor air quality has a major influence on the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants.
“As a result, Sick Building Syndrome is becoming an increasing concern for employers and building owners and managers, as well as builders, architects and engineers. As specialists in occupational health monitoring systems, it was appropriate that we added IAQ monitors to our portfolio.
He concludes: “The E Instruments’ solutions have been specially developed to perform precise IAQ parameter testing for a range of toxic pollutants such as gases, VOCs, bacteria and moulds, in a bid to help avoid or identify a potentially serious health & safety issue.”
