Air Monitors’ technology will also feature in the AQE 2015 Demonstration Arena under the theme ‘Monitoring on the Move’, and registered visitors will have free access to four Air Monitors workshops at the Telford event on 22-23rd April:

  • AQMesh – Low Cost Ambient Air Monitor
  • New Airborne Dust Monitoring Technologies
  • Industrial VOC Monitoring
  • The Internet of (Environmental) Things

According to Air Monitors, AQMesh pods are completely wireless, using battery power and GPRS communications to transmit data for the five main air polluting gases to ‘the cloud’ where sophisticated data management generates air quality readings as well as monitoring hardware performance.

The pods can be mounted anywhere and moved easily, helping to lower the cost of monitoring whilst offering a better opportunity to measure the air that people are breathing.

Further cloud based data collection technology will be on display utilising Envirologger to exploit ‘Internet of Things’ opportunities for environmental monitoring.

Monitors

The firm also supplies a family of particulate monitors, including the Thermo Scientific TEOM, the TEOM FDMS and the Thermo BAM.

Additionally, the firm offers the FIDAS (Fine Dust Analysis System), which provides additional information on both particle size distribution from 0.18 – 30 microns, and on particle number in each size range. FIDAS also provides continuous real-time simultaneous mass concentration measurements of TSP, PM1, PM2.5 and PM10.

A spokesman for Air Monitors said: “Just as the demand for better air quality in towns and cities grows, public sector budgets are diminishing, so the need for better, more effective, lower cost monitoring has never been greater.”
