According to a recent study by the European Environment Agency (EEA), particulate matter in the air causes around 400,000 premature deaths each year in Europe. But which technical terms, limit values and different classifications of particulate matter must be taken into account in order to clarify the question at the end: Is the air we breathe clean or hazardous to our health?
These questions are answered in the video. So what do the technical terms E-dust, A-dust, PM2.5, PM10 mean? What exactly does a weight-related measurement of fine dust look like? Why should the particles also be counted and what does the density of a particle have to do with it?
Today, modern measuring methods offer much better possibilities to visualize the exposure to fine dust with the help of a laser. AirWatch from KEMPER is equipped with a highly sensitive laser that detects, differentiates and counts all particles between 0.1 and 16 micrometers. This allows AirWatch to display and store the total number of particles and the distribution of particle sizes in real time. In addition, the corresponding weight-related values for PM10 and PM2.5 are calculated very accurately. This enables a permanent, differentiated and independent monitoring of the fine dust load in the company. Permanent monitoring enables trends and causes for particularly high or low values to be identified. In addition, AirWatch also documents the number and size of particularly fine particles that would hardly have played a role in a purely weight-based analysis, but are particularly hazardous to health. Discussions about particulate matter will not diminish. However, since this danger is neither visible nor tangible and is difficult to measure, it is a complex subject on which we will be happy to advise you.
