Particles Plus Handheld Particle Counters

Particles Plus handheld particle counters are evolutionary handheld particle measurement instruments capable of being used for cleanroom monitoring, indoor air quality, occupational health & safety and outdoor air quality monitoring. Unlike many traditional particle counters, these hybrid instruments are capable of particle counting, sizing and particle mass measurements (mg/m3) over a much higher particle concentration range when compared to traditional optical particle counters.

Manufactured in the U.S.A, Particles Plus offer a wide range of models which vary in features, flow rate and particle concentration capabilities. Some models are capable of simultaneous PM fraction measurements, CO2, TVOC and other environmental measurements, while data may be accessed locally or remotely via a range of options.

What Can Particles Plus Handhelds Measure

  • Simultaneous particle counting and sizing over 6 particle size channels for monitoring cleanrooms and controlled environments
  • Simultaneous PM fraction dust measurements (ug/m3) for indoor air quality, OH&S and outdoor air monitoring applications
  • Measures temperature from 0 to 50 degrees C with +/- 0.5 deg C accuracy
  • Measures humidity from 15% to 90% with 2% RH accuracy
  • Measures CO2 from 0 to 5,000ppm with 1ppm accuracy
  • Measures TVOC from 0 to 50ppm with 5ppb accuracy
