PM10 approval for dust monitor


Quantitech Ltd, has announced that the 'Grimm 180 Environmental Dust Monitor' has been approved for the measurement of PM10 particulate matter under the European Standard EN 12341. The Grimm 180 is a continuous ambient fine dust monitor, capable of providing highly accurate data on PM10, PM2.5 and PM1.

In order to achieve this approval, the instrument had to undergo extensive tests - both in the field and in the laboratory.

Field tests involved two units measuring against two reference units at both urban and rural locations and during both summer and winter months, in order to check performance during a variety of climatic conditions.

Dust mass is measured by the orthogonal light scattering method, which generates count data for each of the particle size channels and data can be logged internally, displayed - or transferred to PC, using supplied intuitive software.
