Room toxins from furniture, carpets and building materials: New probes "snoop" on behalf of health!
So-called VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are a big unknown in the air and also a big risk. These volatile organic compounds are already at low temperatures in the gaseous state. Therefore, even at room temperature ensures that solvent vapors from carpet and furniture adhesives, plastics, plasticizers and the like go into the room atmosphere. The TSI Q-Trak devices 7575 and 9565 may be the VelociCalc with the probes 984, 985, 986 and 987 meters wide to be fitted for indoor air quality.
The measurement of the probes for low concentrations (984 and 986) is carried out in ppb (parts per billion - parts per billion), also measures the probe 984 and the temperature, the Model 986 additional CO ² and humidity. The probes for high concentrations (985 and 987) indicate the stress values in ppm (parts per million - parts per million) that also measures the model 985 in addition to temperature, the probe 987 and CO ² and moisture. Through the use of the Multi-Trak and Q-gauges VelociCalc for calibration in the context of maintenance requires only hand-held probe - a big advantage for the service, the device itself is not enough. With a known VOC-type can be calculated by entering a specific value in calculating the unit mass concentration.
To make permanent measurements and complete measurement series, the Q-Trak, for example, record and store data and more than 30 days. Via the USB interface, the records are transferred to a PC where they are further processed with the software TRAKPRO or exported. In addition to extensive particle measurement technique that is used primarily for industrial safety applications, the manufacturer also uses safety engineers, building services or building inspection certification or technician. The convenient handheld instruments that provide a few measurements at a low entry price, but also in the same compact form a comprehensive environmental analysis equipment can be be used worldwide.
