GEONICA designs and integrates complete Air Quality Monitoring Stations and Networks for the measurement of inorganic gases and Volatile Organic Compounds where parts per billion (ppb) detection is required, as well as optical aerosol/ particulate monitors for PM1, PM2.5 and PM10.
Our current technologies include Electrochemical, Catalytic, Optical, including NDIR & PID Semiconductor / metal oxide and Spectroscopy and we continue to explore the integration of new technologies for the benefit of our customers.
GEONICA Air Quality Monitoring Station (AQMS) is a robust remote fixed site air quality station designed to be exposed to outdoor environments twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring longer term reliability. Our Air Quality Monitoring System (AQMS) is used to determine compliance with clean air standards, assess the nature of air pollution in cities and for measuring the exposure of humans to airborne pollutants as:
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
- Nitric Oxide (NO)
- Sulfur dioxide (SO2)
- Ozone (O3)
- Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S)
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
- Particulate Matter (PM1, PM2.5 and PM10)
Some of the advantages of our Air Quality Monitoring Stations with respect to the gas analysers are summarized below:
- Much lower cost and minimum maintenance requirements, so it is possible to install more dense networks with much larger number of measuring points.
- Much lower power consumption, operating by means of internal battery and solar panel.
- Reduced size and weight.
- Better temporal response for the measurement of air traffic peaks, as analysers normally log only every 30 or 60 minutes.
- Possibility of incorporating additional noise and meteorological sensors.
- Data Transmission in real-time via GPRS/3G cellular Network or Radio-Link to a Central Receiving Station.
- Web Posting by our advanced WEBTRANS Ubiquitas Internet Platform.
