 Applications

 Description

 

 The Model 602 BetaPLUS Particle Measurement System is the first to receive US EPA Federal Equivalent Method (FEM) designations for all three PM parameters in a single, dual-channel instrument. The instrument is also available in a single channel configuration, retaining either PM10 or PM2.5 US EPA FEM designation depending on the inlet configuration.

The instrument combines sequential sampling with automated mass measurements to provide hourly results for two separate channels simultaneously. Following the internal mass measurements, the sample filters can be transported to a laboratory for further chemical speciation analysis if needed.

For regulatory compliance applications, time synchronizing the instrument with the Federal Reference Method (FRM) leads to closely matching results regardless of location and without the need for any corrections or internal adjustment factors. A patented multistep analysis process eliminates common measurement artifacts such as humidity and background radiation.

The Model 602 BetaPLUS Particle Measurement System represents a significant advancement in atmospheric particulate matter air monitoring, satisfying the data quality requirements of both monitoring agencies and public health researchers. The system is backed by Teledyne API’s world renowned customer service and technical support.
