The P-Trak 8525 Ultrafine particle counter comes with everything you need to start solving tough IAQ problems. Designed to detect and count ultrafine particles smaller than 0.1 micrometer in diameter.
Ultrafine particles are defined as having a diameter less than 0.1 μm (or 100 nm). Engineered nanoparticles (nanomaterials) are a subset of ultrafine particles with dimensions from 1 to 100 nm. Nanomaterials are produced and used for industrial and high-tech applications, while ultrafine particles are the byproducts of combustion and other chemical reactions. Unfortunately, the occupational health risks associated with manufacturing and using nanomaterials are not clearly understood. As a result, a need has arisen to assess workplace conditions. Using TSI’s proven technology, the P-Trak gives direct, real-time measurement of workplace ultrafine particulate levels.
The P-Trak also locates obvious pollutant sources such as boilers, furnaces, and vehicles, and it also detects the not-so-obvious sources such as photocopy machines and printers. Use this instrument to detect the migration of toxic exhaust gases, malfunctioning office equipment, pinhole gasket leaks in boilers and a wide variety of other problems.
