  • Aeroqual Monitor Functions

    Aeroqual Monitor Base

    The Aeroqual monitor base is an electronic platform with an ergonomic design into which you plug your chosen sensor head(s).  The monitor base has a range of features that allow it to be used in a variety of different applications.  The Aeroqual portable air quality monitors are a cost-effective solution to measuring multiple target gases and particulate matter at different concentrations in indoor and outdoor applications.

    Which monitor do I need?

    For real-time display measurements and zero calibration, the Series-200 is a cost effective solution. If an audible alarm or analog output are required, along with the ability to make gain adjustments, choose the Series 300.  For all of these features and datalogging, the flagship Series 500 is a clear choice.  For a comparison of the different monitor bases (Series-200, Series-300, Series-500), see the chart below which can help to identify the model most suitable for your requirements.

  • Peracetic acid (PAA) as a sterilizer

    Peracetic acid (PAA) has been used since the early 1950's as a disinfectant in the food industry.  Exposure level guidelines are important to follow when using any type of gas when cleaning for personnel safety.  Below is an article on the Peracetic acid exposure levels that should be followed.

    Monitoring equipment for Peracetic Acid can be found on our website.

    Peracetic Acid Occupational Exposure Levels

    Peracetic acid (PAA) is gaining wide acceptance as a disinfectant and sterilant in many industries including healthcare, food processing (aseptic packaging, bottling, dairy and meat) and water treatment. PAA acid is a relatively simple chemical formed as an equilibrium component in a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid; with excellent disinfection properties and additionally PAA is environmentally benign since it rapidly breaks down to harmless product (acetic acid and water).

    Any broad spectrum disinfectant or sterilant is potentially hazardous to people exposed to it and the widespread use of PAA has meant that there is the potential for workplace exposure. While employers have a duty to ensure a safe workplace [OSH Act (1970) sec. 5], it has been difficult to determine what level of PAA exposure is safe since there is no OSHA permissible exposure limit for PAA and little other guidance.

    Guidance is now available: The EPA published acute exposure guidelines for PAA in 2010, available at http://www.epa.gov/oppt/aegl/pubs/results80.htm. In addition, the ACGIH has recently published a notice of intended change to introduce a short term exposure limit (STEL) of 0.2 ppm for PAA to The notice is available from the ACGIH website at http://www.acgih.org/store/ProductDetail.cfm?id=2199 and marks a significant improvement in the hazard assessment information available to employers using PAA.

    Knowing the exposure limit is only helpful if the actual exposure can be measured; and the ChemDAQ offers continuous monitors for PAA, designed to operate with sufficient resolution to provide protection at these low levels.

    You can view the full article HERE.

  • Easy as 1-2-3 Aeroqual Monitors

    Aeroqual portable air monitors are great for ambient air quality monitoring and can be used to detect a wide variety of gases, such as: ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, vocs,  and particulate matter. They are used by researchers, professionals, and non-experts alike to gather indicative air quality data. Small enough to fit comfortably in your hand, they can be used anywhere - indoors or outdoors, on the street, up a mountain, they've even been used in Antarctica! Or if you don't need to move around and be portable, the wall bracket can be used to simply mount the Monitor to the wall.

    Using the Aeroqual monitors is as easy as 1-2-3.  See the simple steps below.

    Step 1 : Gather data

    Use the monitor and inter-changeable sensor to take spot measurements. Using the Series 500 you can even log data over time and space.

    Step 2: Download data

    Connect to a PC and download your measurements using Aeroqual's free software or 0-5V analog output.

    Step 3: Analyze data

    Analyze your data to identify trends, discover leaks or pollution hot spots, or dive deep into the numbers for research.

    More information on the Aeroqual Gas Detection Monitors can be found on Gas Sensings website, using the links below.

  • OEM-1,2 vs the SM-50 OEM Ozone Sensors

    The OEM-1 and OEM-2 and SM-50 are all Original Equipment Manufactures (OEMs) Ozone Sensors that are designed with state of the art sensor technology that can be integrated into your own equipment.  OEM Sensors are a great addition to any Ozone System to help ensure any ozone leaks are detected and the Ozone Generation system is shut off.  The OEM sensors can be integrated into your system to control your Ozone Generation system and turn it off and one based on your preset levels. Below we will lay out the benefits and differences between the EcoSensors OEM-1&2 and the Aeroqual SM-50 OEM Ozone Sensors.

    OEM-1&2

    OEM-1

     

    OEM-2

     

    Abilities/Features:

    • 3 range options: 0-0.1ppm, 0-1ppm, 0-10ppm of ozone
    • Can control Ozone Generators and alarms based on an adjustable ozone concentration set point
    • Sensor replacement (SM-1) is simply plug-n-play
    • Pre-calibrated sensors
    • OEM-2 has 4-20mA output
    • Sensors can be located up to 25ft (8meters) away from the board using an extension cable
    • Base Board incorporates power supply, final signal processing, set-point controls and output relay
    • HMOS (Heated metal oxide semiconductor) Sensor

    Disadvantages:

    • The OEM-1&2 are being discontinued October 2017 with the new OEM-3 being released mid-November 2017. The replacement sensors for the OEM-1&2 (SM-1) are no longer available for the OEM-1&2, and will need to be replaced with the new OEM-3.
    • Accuracy 20%

     

    SM-50

    SM50 Sensor & Board

    Abilities/Features:

    • 3 range options: 0-0.15ppm, 0-0.5ppm, 0-10ppm of ozone
    • Analog voltage
    • Relay and status indicators
    • Optional RS232 or RS485
    • Factory calibrated and ready to use
    • Preloaded firmware that optimizes measurements and enhance data output
    • User set points to trigger alarm
    • GSS (Gas Sensitive Semiconductor) Sensor
    • Optional use of: 2 analog voltages inputs and 2 GPIO which can connect a temp/RH sensor
    • Accuracy +/-10%

    Disadvantages:

    • Complete board needs to be replaced when sensor goes bad.

    Main differences:

    Why use OEM Sensors?

    Ozone Sensors should be used in EVERY Ozone Generator to ensure safety for anyone that might be exposed to unsafe levels of ozone.  OSHA has regulations for ozone and proper safety precautions that should be set in place, such as an ozone sensor to shut of Ozone Generator when unsafe levels are detected, is one of them.  If regulations are not followed, it could cost your company a lot of money.  See this story that talks about the fines from OSHA due to worker safety levels.

    More information on these products can be found on our website.
