Traditional method filter method:
Measurement by depositing particles on a filter.
Daily filter change and laboratory weighing.
Determines the amount of particles in micrograms per cubic meter of air.
Does not provide information on chemical composition.
Continuous measurement of particle concentration by light scattering:
Real-time measurements, taking into account particle size distribution.
Does not provide chemical composition.
Advanced particle measurement system from Thies CLIMA:Particulate Matter Hygro-Thermo-Baro Sensor Compact:
Advanced particulate monitor, measures PM1, PM2.5, PM4 and PM10 fractions.
Provides accurate meteorological base information.
Continuous real time measurements with RS485 interface.
