Air Monitoring System Captures Nanoparticles

KEMPER GmbH offers AirWatch, an air monitoring system with highly sensitive sensor technology that measures the number of fine dust particles. It is suitable for production, warehouses and logistics halls.

KEMPER's sensor technology is able to determine and document the number and weight of nanoparticles and then analyze the information and compare it to limit values. A traffic light display continuously visualizes the status of air quality.

AirWatch measures fine dust particles in a radius of up to 30 meters using a laser-powered sensor. An integrated fan draws in ambient air.

It is possible to save individual limit values for hazardous substances. A traffic light shows the current air quality level measured against these values. At the same time, the system saves the data across a long time period. Users access the data using a smartphone, tablet or PC. A trend display for day, week, month or year allows companies to analyze concentration of hazardous substances in more detail.

AirWatch captures particles in the range of 100 nanometers up to 16 micrometers. This area includes the fine dust categories PM2.5 for alveolar common dust (A dust) and PM10 for all inhalable dusts (E dust) as defined by WHO. AirWatch automatically classifies the captured particles accordingly.

AirWatch also monitors the effectiveness of ventilation measures. Companies can independently check their compliance with regulations issued by professional associations apart from official checks made by professional associations.

"Counting fine dust particles has an advantage compared to applicable limit values, which analyze the weight of fine dust: if coarse dust particles in the production move around then a limit value is surpassed quickly," said Björn Kemper, Managing Director of KEMPER GmbH. "The invisible fine dust, on the other hand, often remains undetected - with fatal consequences. Millions of fine dust particles that do not reach the weight of the specified limit value make employees sick. Even if the limit value is adhered to, permanent exposure to fine dust can lead to serious health problems. Current studies show that fine dust is the cause of increased heart attack risk, accelerates dementia, causes cancer and may even lead to death. The WHO classes fine dust as a direct cause of lung cancer."
