The FH 62 C14 Particulate Monitor is designed to continuously measure the mass concentration of the suspended particles in the ambient air.
Suspended particles in ambient air serve as a vehicle for organic and inorganic chemical compounds. If a person breathes these contaminated particles, bronchitis syndromes or lung and pulmonary health problems may occur. Air quality networks observe the pollutant components for health protection of the population.
The FH 62 C14 Particulate Monitor is the only radiometric instrument measuring, observing and displaying the accumulated dust mass during the dust collection. This method permits real time measurement of the dust on a filter and on-line measurement/display of the mass concentration of the suspended particulate in ambient air.
The FH 62 C14 utilizes the radiometric principle of beta-attenuation using C14 source. Due to this process a very high measurement stability is achieved, because the air mass change in the active volume by temperature and pressure is corrected.
