AQS 1 Construction Air Quality Monitor
The AQS 1 Construction Air Quality Monitor provides simultaneous measurement of multiple particle size fractions (TSP, PM10, PM4, PM2.5 and PM1), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and sulfur dioxide (SO2). Measures and reports data in 1-minute intervals with user selectable averaging, delivering highly accurate results with very strong correlation to US EPA reference analyzers. Suitable for use on a range of projects, including Construction Environmental Management Plans, compliance monitoring, environmental impact assessments, and industrial hygiene.
Simultaneous measurement of particulate matter (TSP, PM10, PM4, PM2.5 & PM1) and parts-per-billion (ppb) detection of NO2, CO, H2S and SO2
Measures and reports data in 1-minute intervals with user selectable averaging – access data anywhere and set alerts via any wireless device
Robust, weatherproof enclosure with solar shielding, suitable for use in most conditions
The AQS 1 Construction Air Quality Monitor is a fully integrated monitor, specifically configured to measure key pollutants found at construction sites. TSP and PM10 emissions, including silica dust, are typically generated from bulk material operations, such as earthworks, demolition, crushing and grinding operations, and from soil and aggregate stockpiling. Fine particles, such as PM2.5, are emitted in the exhaust from diesel-powered construction equipment. Construction and demolition sites also generate NO2, CO, H2S, and SO2 emissions from industrial trucks, excavators, loaders, bulldozers, mobile cranes, off-road machinery, and static engines such as pumps and electricity generators.
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. Housed in a rugged, lockable weatherproof enclosure, it includes an embedded PC and full software system for remote technical support, data management and analytics.
What can it measure?
The AQS 1 system can meet all your monitoring requirements including noise, dust, gases and weather. Aeroqual's remote data acquisition tools provide a complete measurement package for construction and demolition projects.
The AQS 1 can be configured to measure particulate matter (TSP, PM10, PM4, PM2.5 and PM1) and up to three gases (O3, NO2, CO, H2S, SO2, VOCs, CH4) simultaneously. For specific applications, see our other pre-configured AQS 1 monitors: AQS 1 Remediation, AQS 1 Urban.What can it measure?
The AQS1 now comes with the PCX Particle Module!
More mass channels simultaneously: PM1, PM2.5, PM4, PM10, and TSP mass measured as standard, with the same level of accuracy provided by our Nephelometer engine for a single mass measurement.
MCerts certified for PM10 and PM2.5: The PCX PM10 and PM2.5 are both MCerts certified (pending) so now users can get certified results for both channels simultaneously in one unit.
