Ambient Fine Dust Sampler (Remodelled)
Driven by the need for wider compatibility in sync with (for pandering to) Indian industry’s bias favouring mass flow sensor for air flow measurement in air sampling.
Available Model : PEM–ADSM 2.5µ/10µ
AMBIENT FINE DUST SAMPLER Model PEM-ADS 2.5 / 10µ has been Polltech’s flagship product which has gained industry wide acceptance particularly because of the accuracy, stability and constancy of flow measurement and control afforded therein. The method employed is an approved method by various authorities including USEPA and Indian CPCB.
Polltech’s has thus far steadfastly persisted with volumetric flow measurement and control based on an orifice metering. It has been a late realization that many users in India for some reasons, which are more advertorial than soundly technical, seem to prefer a mass flow sensor based flow measurement. Therefore, in deference to their preference and in tune with our mission of providing comprehensive service to all our customers, existing and potential alike, we have decided to adopt as an alternative Mass Flow sensor based flow measurement.
Accordingly, driven by the desire to serve a wider clientele, Polltech has remodeled its Ambient Fine Dust Sampler. The remodeled sampler is christened as Model PEM–ADSM 2.5 / 10 where M symbolizes the deployment of a mass flow based sensor for measurement of flow.
Ambient Fine Dust Sampler Model PEM-ADSM-2.5/10µ is an advanced fine dust sampler, which is used to determine the concentration of PM2.5 (AED ≤ 2.5 microns) and PM10 (AED ≤ 10 microns) in atmosphere. It has been specifically designed to comply with EPA reference method for determination of PM2.5 and employs a WINS Impactor (2.5µ cut stage) in series with a PM10 size separator. When used without WINS Impactor, it becomes a standard reference method instrument for PM10 sampling.
Common Applications :
- Routine Monitoring by air monitoring networks
- Compliance Monitoring of ambient air in industrial areas
- Investigative Air Monitoring for pollution surges
- Roadside Monitoring in urban areas
- Open Spaces like forests and national parks air monitoring.
- Data reporting for monthly and yearly averages by local area air quality networks.
- Perimeter monitoring by industries like Chemical, Fertilizers, Petrochemical etc.
- Monitoring Stations by industries for ISO Compliance
- Construction and mining sites
- Waste Disposal sites.
- Third Party Assessments like Impact Analysis Evaluations, Factory Act Compliance, Environment Impact Assessments and ISO 14001,18001 Audit Compliances
- Use in educational institutes for demonstrations and practical usages.
- Various Research studies in environmental, health and science areas.
Physical Design Highlights :
PEM–ADS 2.5/10µ comprises an improved louvered PM10 sampling Inlet, a PM-10 size separator, a WINS impactor, a filter holder for 47mm dia. filter, a flow measurement system, a proportioning valve for flow control, a sampling pump, sensors (for measurement of ambient pressure and temperature) and an electronic control module (ECM). All these assemblies along are housed in an enclosure suitable for outdoor environment.
The Sampling pump can be optionally located in a separate housing.
The air flow is measured by measuring the differential pressure across an orifice plate installed in the sampling line. The pressure at the inlet of the orifice and differential pressure across it is measured with Solid State pressure sensors.
The ECM is a microprocessor-based electronic unit which carries out multiple functions of monitoring, control, regulation, timing, computation and Operator Machine Interface.
