Aeroqual AQS 1 Remediation Air Quality Monitor
TSP and PM10 emissions, including dust, are generated from demolition, excavation, soil aerating, recycling and from bulk material stockpiling and transfer. Fine particles such as PM2.5 are emitted in the exhaust from diesel-powered machinery and equipment.
VOCs are often released from contaminated soil during excavation, in-situ aerating, stockpiling and during haulage to regulated landfills.
On-site remediation and landfills also generate NO2 and NOx emissions from industrial trucks, excavators, loaders, bulldozers, off-road machinery such as pumps and generators.
HSE managers, environmental consultants, and industrial hygienists use the AQS 1 Remediation Air Quality Monitor for compliance monitoring, to meet requirements of Remediation Management Plans, to conduct environmental impact assessments and to ensure sensitive receptors such as workers and the community are not at risk from air pollution.
The AQS 1 can be integrated with noise monitors, weather stations, and vibration sensors, plus our remote data acquisition system, for the complete air quality package for site remediation projects.
The AQS 1 can be configured to measure particulate matter (TSP, PM10, PM2.5, PM1) and up to three gases (O3, NO2, VOCs) simultaneously.
The AQS 1 combines a robust nephelometer, sharp cut cyclone, and Aeroqual’s industry-leading GSS ozone sensor technology. It uses a patented method to correct for ozone interference on the electrochemical NO2, a well-known issue with all electrochemical NO2 sensors. In so doing, the monitor performs to Near Reference levels, producing data of a superior quality to other sensor-based instruments.
The AQS 1 is a fully integrated monitor. Housed in a rugged, lockable weatherproof enclosure, it includes an embedded PC and full software system for remote technical support, data management, and analytics.
The AQS 1 is supported by a global distribution network, meaning you’re never too far from a skilled technician ready to provide assistance and spare parts. In addition, Aeroqual’s online training system is free to all our customers, meaning you can become an expert on your AQS system before it even arrives.
Once the instrument operating system is installed, Aeroqual Connect lets you access data, assess performance and diagnose faults remotely (if you choose to give us access, we can help with that too). Aeroqual Cloud offers even greater levels of convenience with enhanced browsing speeds, multiple user management, fail-safe backup, email and SMS alerts and access to your data even when your instrument is offline.
