Room Particulate Sensing

How to improve the health and wellbeing of building occupants indoors.


New PM2.5 Sensing with the GS-PM-S


It is proven that particulate matter such as PM2.5 particles can have major health impacts to us all when breathed in over a long term. We all know that pollution from things like road traffic and industry can reduce our overall air quality and have seen in recent years that there are links between quality and poor air.

Monitoring particulate matter


The GS-PM-S monitors the concentration of PM2.5 in the air via the continuous light emission of IR and LED. For ease of use and indication to building occupants there is a 6 colour LCD display showing the stages from green to red of worsening conditions.

The sensor also has combined monitoring for temperature and relative humidity for a simple all in one solution.

Please contact us for additional sensing options such as CO, CO2 & VOC.

The human body can be negatively affected by fine dust unseen by the human eye

PM2.5 Particle Sources

The fine dust partices enter the nose, mouth and throat to cause breathing dfficulties.
Those particles can even penetrate deep into the lungs, can cause lung cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Fine dust particles in proportion

PM10+ 10+ μm diameter [Blocked by nose]
PM5.0 2.5 to 10 μm diameter [Blocked in mouth and throat]
PM2.5 2.5 μm diameter [Can penetrate deep into the lungs, causing lung and cardiovascular diseases]

 

Where do indoor PM2.5 pollutants come from?


Our indoor air quality can be impacted by many things.  From outdoor air pollution coming in, to our activities indoors.  Things like, cooking, cleaning, or even burning a candle can create particulate matter.

 

How can you improve indoor air quality and reduce particulate matter?


There are many ways that you can improve your air quality, and this is where monitoring levels can really help!

If your indoor air quality is poor and you know your outdoor air quality is good, the simple way to improve air quality would be to introduce fresh air from outside.  However, if the air quality outside is not good, you would not want to introduce more particulate matter into the indoor environment. You could then look at processes such as filtering and cleaning the air using many devices or systems available. 

The most effective filter against particulate matter is HEPA. You can also help to improve or prevent poor indoor air quality by paying attention to things like cleanliness, activities and products being used that emit particulate matter. Things like vacuuming regularly, using safer cleaning products, not smoking or removing coats or clothing worn when smoking outside can all have an impact in levels.
 

How can we reduce overall particulate matter?


This is down to us and the way we live our lives.  We can all make small changes in things that we do that when multiplied amongst all of us can help to make a big difference.  

The Building Controls industry has a great opportunity to be part of the difference. 
Take a look at the BCIA “One Small Change” campaign to see how we can all play our part.
