Recent satellite images of the country show large hazy clouds covering portions of northeastern China that are so thick they can be seen from space. The images,

Using a HandHeld Indoor Monitor Outdoors Means Unreliable Results - 2242 ug for PM 2.5

 In a recent article in Weibo, the person monitored the outdoor air in Beijing and got a reading of 2242 ug for PM 2.5  which was posted in a blog.  The official monitors registered more than 1/2 lower reading for PM2.5 at the same time.  This is the prime example of why using a handheld monitor to measure ambient air will not offer reliable data.

PROUD TO BE FROM SOUTHERN OREGON

 Met One Instruments “When we moved our business here it was the ready, willing, and able workforce that was key for us and gave us an edge.” -Peter Pomponi, VP Sales Photo Credit: Jim Craven Photography GRANTS PASS, OR – Met One Instruments (MOI) moved to Grants Pass, Oregon, in 1980 from the Silicon Valley, and it has been riding a rapid growth curve ever since. “It just stopped making monetary sense to be there,” said Peter Pomponi, Vice President of Sales. According to their CFO Riley Loftin, “The business environment in California is very difficult on manufacturing companies. It’s one of the main reasons why people move out of California to go find something else – they get frustrated with it all.” “It’s easy for us to do business here,” said Peter. “It’s easy for us to get our products shipped and it’s easy for us to get components locally if we can’t make them ourselves. We now have 110 employees in Grants Pass. We like to hire local people, and the workfor

We Need to Know the Quality of Air We Breathe.

Attilio Poli Managing Director at Asia Pacific Air Quality Group Pte Ltd Met One Instruments, Inc. distributor in Singapore. Monitoring the Haze at Our Own Place Sep 15, 2015 During the past few days Singapore has been affected by the haze originating from the wild fires in Sumatra (Indonesia). The concentrations of PM2.5 have often reached unhealthy levels and we all have been looking at the update of the PSI (Pollution Standard Index) data. We need to know the quality of the air that we breath The concentrations can be different from place to place and what we need to know more is how much high and unhealthy is the air that we are breathing where we are living, working, where our kids are playing. We need to know it right now It is extremely important to know that the air that we are breathing is unhealthy exactly in the moment when it happens, not later, even if it is only three hours later. Unfortunately monitoring the quality of

NEW BLACK CARBON MONITOR SHIPPING WORLDWIDE

ANOTHER QUALITY PRODUCT FROM MET ONE INSTRUMENTS, INC. contact: sales@metone.com The BC-1050 is a two-channel, continuous, filter-based monitor that simultaneously measures black carbon “BC” and UV-equivalent particulate matter “UVPM”. Measurements are made through the principle of optical absorption. Attenuation of one light source in the near-infrared “NIR” (935 nm) and another in the ultraviolet “UV” (375 nm) are simultaneously monitored across quartz fiber filter onto which particulate matter is being deposited in real time. The attenuation of the NIR source is used to quantify BC; the attenuation of the UV source may be used to quantify UVPM (UV-equivalent particulate matter).  The BC-1050 is highly sensitive: the lower limit of detection is approximately 2 ng/m3 (note 1 ng = .001 μg). The minimum time resolution of the BC-1050 is 1-minute, although 5, 10, 15, 30 and 60-minute time resolution is also available. Each BC-1050 includes: 1 BC-1050 Two Channel (935 nm and 375 nm)

We are also convinced that the complex field of atmospheric aerosols, with important scientific, health, and environmental implications (and therefore economic and social as well), requires contributions from the many diverse areas of expertise that represent "all the souls in the world of particulate matter".   MILANO-BICOCCA UNIVERSITY -  SEPTEMBER, 6-11 2015   WWW.EAC2015.IT Please contact Ing.

MID-ATLANTIC ELECTRIC POWER PLANT INSTALLS A FIRST CLASS METEOROLOGICAL TOWER

The installation of new meteorological systems supplied by Climatronics (a subsidiary of Met One Instruments, Inc.)  for the primary and secondary towers at a mid-Atlantic electric power plant was recently completed by the utility's staff.  The systems measure the winds, air temperature, and relative humidity at two levels on the main tower and at the top of the secondary tower.  Data are recorded with IMP-865 data loggers at each tower with factory integrated systems providing rapid installation and setup for the utility technicians.

MOI INTRODUCES THE BC-1050 BLACK CARBON MONITOR GLOBALLY

You are here: EPA Home Air and Radiation Black Carbon Basic Information Basic Information (From T. Bond 2007)         BC Emissons, Gigagrams What is Black Carbon? Black carbon (BC) is the most strongly light-absorbing component of particulate matter (PM), and is formed by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, biofuels, and biomass. BC is emitted directly into the atmosphere in the form of fine particles (PM 2.5 ). BC is the most effective form of PM, by mass, at absorbing solar energy: per unit of mass in the atmosphere, BC can absorb a million times more energy than carbon dioxide (CO 2 ).  BC is a major component of “soot”, a complex light-absorbing mixture that also contains some organic carbon (OC).
