Nanoparticle measurement as an important factor
Nanoparticles are an underestimated danger which do not just affect people in the form of exhaust gases from vehicles. Particularly in the industrial sector, where machines are used, pollution may occur due to the emission of nanoparticles. This happens invisibly, but the consequences are serious. The particulate matter which is released from industrial processes gets into the human body. It is able to move around there and can even reach the brain.
Investigations have shown that nanoparticles are capable of promoting the development of lung and cardiovascular diseases. It is also suspected that they are responsible for damage to the nervous system. It is all the more important for particle emission in industrial processes to be taken into consideration and controlled. You need to integrate a flue gas analyzer and a leak detector.
People working in a room where there is pollution due to nanoparticles are exposed to a danger to their health on a daily basis. The nanoparticles meter helps you to control the pollution of the environment. It is able to measure the particle count in a defined area and to communicate the values. If you establish that there is pollution, you can take measures to deal with it. Some workplaces are particularly heavily polluted by nanoparticles.
If the measurement is carried out by the nanoparticles measuring instruments on site, you have the advantage of being able to record not only the concentration, but also the size.
The instruments in Testo's range are portable. Measurements can be carried out in different areas.
The following are important features of a nanoparticles meter:
- recording of the particle number and particle size
- storage of measurement results
- no need for operating resources
