PQ200 Ambient Fine Particulate Air Monitor

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The PQ200 is a microprocessor-controlled, volumetric flow rate air sampling instrument which enables any facility required to do so, the ability to obtain a valid PM2.5 :m air sample. In addition it offers the investigator the ability to perform their work in areas where no line power is available; this is accomplished via an internal battery and may be augmented with external batteries and solar power. Recovered data may be handled with a Windows software suite, included with the sampler. The instrument is manufactured entirely in the U.S. in an ISO 9001-certified facility.

PQ200 is convertible to designated PM10 reference sampler

The PQ200 is designed to meet exacting criteria for collecting 24-hour samples of ambient "Fine Particulate," according to the U.S. National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), published July 18, 1997.

The Very Sharp Cut Cyclone (VSCC) has replaced the WINS impactor and allows 30 days between cleaning intervals. Further details may be viewed on an individual page. Existing PQ200 samplers may be converted.

PM2.5 (particles less than 2.5 micrometers in aerodynamic diameter) is collected on 47 mm PTFE membrane media at a volumetric sample rate of 16.67 Lpm after being size discriminated through two U.S. EPA designed inertial separators. Ambient temperature and barometric pressure measurements are made at actual sample conditions. A microprocessor and sophisticated volumetric flow control system are integrated to maintain precise sampling parameters while sampling data are continuously logged into the processor memory. Five minute actual ambient temperature and pressure conditions with volumetric sample flow rate, filter temperature, and pressure are recorded. Measured values and identification of flags indicating any anomalies are recovered by the operator by downloading a sample summary to a laptop or handheld computer. EPA's audit program makes exclusive use of the PQ200A version of the sampler. This item is available to all authorities and individuals who wish to sample or audit under EPA stringent guidelines.
