Low Cost Laser Particle CounterTwo products from AirTest Technologies

Low Cost Laser Particle Counter

AirTest is pleased to announce a breakthrough in the cost of affordable particle counting. PM2500 counts the number of particles in two size ranges. One channel counts small particles that tend to stay airborne all the time (1 to 5 microns). The second channel counts larger particles that tend to settle out over hours or minutes (>5 microns). The counts are displayed on the LCD screen of the device and can be interpreted using a chart on the back of the device. Historical readings for the past minutes, hours or days can easily be reviewed at the press of a button. AirTest’s PM2500 is (under $200), making it accessible as a everyday monitor or screening tool for individuals, contractors and building owners. Link: www.AirTestTechnologies.com/iaq 

Mold Hunter Hand Held Tool

Most molds begin to grow when surface moisture levels are near the condensation point. The Mold Hunter™ is designed to measure dew point moisture content in the air and at the same time measure the temperature of a surface of a wall, floor pipe or duct using a laser aiming dot. The closer the air dew point is to the surface temperature, the higher the likely hood that moisture in the air may condense on/ or in building components. High moisture content creates ideal conditions for water damage and mold growth. This tool will allow a better understanding of moisture issues in buildings and can be used to quickly identify mold vulnerable areas or if summer cooling dehumidification is adequate to prevent conditions that may favor mold growth. www.AirTestTechnologies.com/iaq
