Lear Siegler Australasia was delighted to attend and assist with the sponsorship of the 14th World Congress of the International Union of Air Pollution Prevention and Environmental Protection Associations (IUAPPA) held in Brisbane from the 9-13th of September 2007. This event incorporated the 18th CASANZ Conference hosted by the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand.
This event allowed Lear Siegler to promote their new and existing quality environmental technology.
Pneumatic Focusing Gas Chromatography (PFGC) in a personal computer:
One of these new and exciting developments is the new technique of Pneumatic Focusing Gas Chromatography (PFGC) developed by VOC Technologies.
PFGC is a continuous speciated monitor for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). This new technique is contained entirely within a personal computer which also contains all the normal computer components therefore maintaining full functionality.
Chromatography gases and samples enter the instrument through the back and real time observation of in-process chromatograms is done on a computer monitor, on-site and through an internet connection.
EnviDAS - PC-based Environmental Data Acquisition System:
Envitech is another organisation that has had a successful partner ship with Lear Siegler Australasia promoting their field of environmental monitoring and data acquisition systems for air, water, toxic gas, radiation and noise applications.
For this purpose Envitech provides a PC-based Environmental Data Acquisition System - EnviDAS and EnviDAS for Windows.
Envitech provides ENVIEW 2000 for supervisory control and data acquisition. ENVIEW 2000's graphical user interface is an easy to learn and use and provides dynamic display, data collection, archiving, reporting and a wide range of analysis capabilities.
Model 5030 Sharp monitor - continuous PM10 and PM2.5 measurement:
Lear Siegler Australasia featured many other products from their large range of ambient particulate monitors which developed a lot of interest from customers who are concerned with ambient air quality monitoring.
Model 5030 Sharp monitor combines light scattering photometry and beta radiation attenuation for continuous PM10 and PM2.5 measurement.
The result is an accurate, precise and real time continuous particulate monitor that heats only when necessary, eliminates moisture effects and assures that the volatile aerosol remains intact for accurate measurement.
Model FH62 C14 - Beta attenuation:
The Thermo Fisher FH62 C14 is another continuous ambient particulate monitor which measures the mass concentration of suspended particulate matter by use of beta attenuation.
While ambient particulate matter is being deposited onto a filter tape sample spot, the dynamic filter loading is measured continuously by the attenuation of the C14 source beta rays which allows for real time measurement of airborne particulate.
TEOM 1405-DF - Dichotomous ambient air particulate monitor with FMDS:
The TEOM model 1405-DF simultaneously measures PM-10, PM2.5 and PM-Coarse mass concentration as it exists in the ambient air. This system is composed of two Filter Dynamic Measurement Systems (FDMS) and two TEOMs housed in one small single cabinet with a network ready configuration that includes the control system with touch screen user interface.
The FDMS system represents a breakthrough in ambient particulate matter (PM) mass measurement by taking the uncertainty out of PM measurements.
The FDMS system was developed using the latest scientific findings and understanding of particulate behaviour in the ambient air. The 1405-DF unit automatically generates mass concentration measurements that account for both non-volatile and volatile PM-10, PM2.5 and PM-coarse components.
The system's default data output consists of running 1-hour and 24-hour average mass concentration updated every 6 minutes and the monitor computes FDMS base and reference mass concentrations over those same averaging times.
