AAQMS typically consists of a High-Volume Sampler System or a manual sampler that draws a known volume of air through the filter. After collecting samples for the specified time period, the sampler is manually transported to the laboratory for analysis. Before and after sampling, the filter is analyzed for various pollutants based on its weight. As a result, there is a sample collection, sample transfer to the lab, analysis, data recording, and post-consumption process.
The level of pollutants is monitored by ambient air quality monitoring systems, or AAQMS. From a single analyzer to full turnkey systems (both mobile and fixed) with shelters and hardwired or wireless data transfer to pollution control boards. IEP offers a wide range of solutions to meet a large portion of the Ambient Air Quality Monitoring requirements.
