The Environmental Particulate Air Monitor model EPAM-5000 provides a complete real-time profile and graphical representation of airborne particulate levels and exposures with data read out in milligrams per cubic meter (mg/m3).
When the EPAM-5000 is deployed the sample air stream first passes by the light scattering sensor where particulate concentration is registered electronically, then the air stream is deposited directly onto a 47mm gravimetric filter located directly behind the optical sensor as shown above. The 47mm filter cassette is designed in accordance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency's standards.
The EPAM-5000 offers a 24-hour rechargeable battery for portable flexibility and runs as a continuous monitor when used with the supplied AC power transformer. All is housed in a rugged watertight carrying case for ambient air monitoring. All real time data is immediately stored in the instrument’s computer memory and can be viewed on the LCD display or downloaded to a PC using the provided graphical and statistical software package.
The EPAM-5000 reduces the cost of acquiring data for regulatory compliance program support and safety audit reporting. The benefit of real-time data collection allows for immediate and permanent documentation and assists in reducing the number of manual filter gravimetric tests. This reduces labor costs and associated lab analysis and results in a cost saving for any air monitor program.
