What is PM?

What is PM10? Particulate matter with a particle size of less than 10 micrometers is commonly referred to as PM10, which can persist in the environment for long periods of time and therefore has a significant impact on both atmospheric visibility and human health.

PM10 can persist in the environment for a long period of time and therefore has a significant impact on atmospheric visibility and human health.PM10 has a small diameter and can be inhaled by the human body and deposited in the respiratory tract where it can cause illness. Generally speaking, the smaller the diameter of the particulate matter, the deeper it penetrates.

Particles with a diameter of 10 microns can be deposited in the respiratory tract, while particles with a diameter of 5 microns can penetrate deeper into the respiratory tract, and particles with a diameter of less than 2 microns can penetrate deeper into the fine bronchial tubes and alveoli.

Sources of particulate matter

What are the places that tend to produce PM10? Unpaved asphalt, motor vehicles traveling on concrete pavements, the crushing and milling process of materials, and dust lifted by the wind …… All of these produce PM10, but of course, the focus is on dust. Construction sites are prone to dust generation, so many construction sites are now required to take strict measures to mitigate dust pollution.

What is particle monitoring system?

Particle monitoring system monitoring is an all-weather urban outdoor particle monitoring instrument, which can simultaneously measure PM10, PM2.5, TSP concentration, and also collect meteorological parameters such as site wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity.

The equipment is composed of Air particle meter, data acquisition and transmission system, video monitoring system, dehumidification dryer, background data processing system and information monitoring management platform. It has the functions of online monitoring the concentration of various types of particles (including TSP, PM10 and PM2.5), environmental temperature and humidity and wind speed and direction monitoring, noise monitoring, video monitoring and video capture of pollutants exceeding the standard, and high concentration alarm.

In fact, the composition of particulate matter is very complex, as long as the composition of carbon compounds, water-soluble particulate matter, mineral dust and heavy metal elements, etc. PARTICLE MONITORING SYSTEM technology, that is, the main monitoring of the air in a variety of fine solid or liquid particles.

Measurement Methods for Particulate Matter

At present, China has included TSP, PM10 and PM2.5 in the ambient air quality standard. As for the measurement methods, there are mass method, beta-ray absorption method, piezoelectric quartz crystal method and light scattering method.

The above content is this time for you to share the relevant information about particle monitoring system monitoring, I hope you can have a better understanding of the product after reading.
