Aeroqual Gas Detector Applications

Applications

Over the last 15 years Aeroqual has made and delivered more than 10,000 portable monitors. The applications below are just some of the ways in which our customers put their monitors to use.

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air features a range of pollutants that can be very different to those found outdoors. Aeroqual portable monitors can be used indoors and outdoors for applications ranging from air quality monitoring, health and safety, or process control.

Common Gas Detected are: Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), Ozone (O3), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), VOC, Formaldehyde (CH2O)

Construction Dust and Emissions

Construction and remediation activity can have significant impact on local receptors, over and above general urban pollution levels. The portable monitor can be used to spot check PM, NO2 and VOCs around construction sites.

Common Gas Detected are: Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), VOC

Transport Emissions

In most cities transport emissions are a major contributor to urban air pollution. Pollution from mobile sources (on and off road vehicles, ships and aircraft) often includes Carbon Monoxide (CO), Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM 10), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), and VOCs.

Smog Monitoring

Smog formation and distribution can be challenging to model and predict. Ozone and PM2.5 are the primary pollutants; the contributing pollutants are NO2 and VOC. Portable monitors sampling a wide area can gain new insight into smog patterns.

Common Gas Detected are: Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), Ozone (O3), VOCs, Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2).

Air Quality Model Validation

Validating air quality models is complex, affected by scale and micro-environment. Methods such as diffusion tubes may provide spatial accuracy but temporal precision is forfeited. Taking real-time measurements, Aeroqual portable monitors overcome these limitations.

Common Gas Detected are: Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), Ozone (O3), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), VOCs, Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), and Carbon Monoxide (CO).

Community Exposure Studies

Pollution exposure varies widely within a city depending on pollution sources, meteorological effects and topography. Aeroqual portable monitors offer community groups cost-effective tools for measuring a wide rang of pollutants in a robust and defensible way.

Common Gas Detected are: Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), Ozone (O3), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), VOCs, Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), and Carbon Monoxide (CO).
