Overview

BPM-200

Continuous Particulate Monitor

The BPM-200 measures ambient particulate by using well applied beta ray attenuation technology. PM2.5 measurement can also be achieved by introducing corresponding cyclone.

Key Features

  • Compliance with US EPA equivalent method

  • Automatic continuous operation up to 60 days

  • Auto zero and span calibration

  • Low maintenance and operation requirement

  • User selectable measurement cycle

  • Various output with serial printer and GPRS as optional

  • Stable and long life time radiation source

Principle

Particulate matter sample is pulled by a vacuum pump and concentrated on filter tape spot, the concentrated sample is advanced to measuring position where between beta ray source and detector.

An attenuation signal of beta ray is detected which represents the mass of sample particulate. Particulate concentration can be determined by dividing mass to volume which has been strictly controlled during sampling with fixed flow rate.
