INDOOR AIR PARTICLE COUNTERS
AFTER 2 DECADES OF EXCELLENT SERVICE WE BRING THE LAB TO YOUR HOME!
Miami Mold Specialist utilizes indoor air particle counters to assess the air quality in your property without having to send samples to a laboratory. Specifically used for clients with weak immune systems who are highly sensitive when exposed to mold, our air particle counters are a time and cost effective method to use when dealing with contaminated air. In regards to pollutants and bacteria that infiltrate the air, most people focus on the outside air and how it affects our daily lives but what they forget to take into account is how the air inside our home’s can truly impact our health and comfort.
An aerosol particle counter works on the principal of either light scattering or light blocking. An aerosol stream is drawn through a chamber with a light source (either Laser Based Light or White Light). When a particle is illuminated by this light beam, it is redirected or absorbed. Light scattered by a single particle in a specific direction in relation to the original direction has a unique signature which relates to the size of the particle. This allows for sizing and counting of individual particles.
A particle counter is made up of 4 components:
- Light Source (Gas Based Laser, Solid State Laser Diode, High Intensity Light)
- Photo Detection Electronics
- Sample Flow System
- Counting Electronics
