ParticleScan® Pro

Advanced particle-counting precision for air quality professionals.

Overview

The IQAir ParticleScan Pro is a professional, advanced, handheld laser particle counter designed for use by indoor air quality specialists to diagnose air-quality problems and to verify solutions. The ParticleScan Pro is easy to use, reliable, exceptionally accurate and includes features such as multi-mode counting that make it superior to conventional particle counters.

The ParticleScan Pro features six channels that make it convenient to count particles of multiple sizes at the same time. An advanced display panel allows viewing particle counts in either cumulative or differential modes. The ParticleScan Pro’s 0.025 cfm flow rate is deliberately slower than conventional particle counters and drastically reduces coincidence loss at higher particle concentrations. The result is a much more accurate particle count, especially in polluted urban environments where particle counts exceed 2 million particles per cubic foot. 

Applications

The ParticleScan Pro enables IAQ professionals to provide meaningful information to customers regarding efficiency, pollution sources, filter leakage and other IAQ issues. It is ideal for particle source investigations and for evaluating air-cleaning performance. 

Monitor indoor and outdoor particle concentrations

The ParticleScan Pro features a substantially slower airflow rate than conventional particle scanners, allowing greater accuracy in typical indoor and outdoor environments. 

Automated logging of particle concentrations

The USB interface of the ParticleScan Pro makes it easy to download and log data so you can focus on tracking and evaluating air quality problems.

Track particulate pollution sources

The ParticleScan Pro automatically refreshes data readings every six seconds, allowing you to monitor particle concentration changes as they occur and where they occur.

Spot-check particulate pollution levels at the workplace

The ParticleScan Pro is completely portable, and operates for up to 4 hours from its continuously rechargeable NiMH battery pack. The scanner and accessories fit in a polypropylene carrying case for superior protection in the field.

Show efficiency of air filters, air cleaners, and vacuum cleaners

The ParticleScan Pro is handheld and includes an isokinetic probe that makes it easy to take readings at the air intake and air outlet of a filtration system.

Inspect HVAC equipment and ducting

This system is ideal for evaluating installed filtration efficiency and pinpointing efficiencies at specific particle-size levels. The ParticleScan Pro also helps demonstrate the need for duct cleaning and to certify your work.

Research

Included USB cable for data logging and transfer makes it easy to maintain accurate data for research in the lab or in the field.

Product Evaluation & Demonstration

The ParticleScan Pro is highly sensitive and can categorize particles into six groups at the same time, allowing air quality professionals to focus on particle sizes of most interest for evaluations and demonstrations.

Monitor long-term particle trends

The ParticleScan Pro is portable and accurate, making it easy to log data in multiple locations over time for meaningful trend analyses.

ParticleScan® CR

Advanced particle-counting precision for cleanrooms and clean areas.

Overview

The IQAir ParticleScan CR is a professional, advanced, handheld laser particle counter designed specifically for use in cleanrooms and other controlled environments. The ParticleScan CR is easy to use, reliable, exceptionally accurate and includes features such as multi-mode counting that make it superior to conventional particle counters. In addition, the CR features a 0.1 cfm airflow rate and includes HEPA filtered air exhaust to help preserve the air-quality integrity of the cleanroom or clean area.

The ParticleScan CR features six channels that make it convenient to count particles of multiple sizes at the same time. An advanced display panel allows viewing particle counts in either cumulative or differential modes. The affordable, completely portable ParticleScan CR is an essential tool to verify particle concentrations in cleanrooms and clean areas within seconds.

Applications

Verify particle levels in cleanrooms

Evaluate the effectiveness of contamination control measures with scientific data that lets you pinpoint concentration levels at multiple particle-size levels simultaneously.

Continuous monitoring of controlled environments

The ParticleScan CR continuously detects particles down to 0.3 microns in diameter in cleanrooms and other controlled environments with a data refresh rate of every six seconds.

Testing of laminar flow benches and clean air cabinets

The ParticleScan CR is completely portable and transportable and can quickly and easily analyze particle counts in multiple areas. Remote access is ideal for use in controlled environments.

Monitor and log particle concentrations for record keeping and reporting

Real-time data transfer and logging is easy and efficient with the ParticleScan CR’s USB interface and data refreshing every six seconds.

Test HEPA filter efficiency and leakage

The ParticleScan CR is handheld and includes an isokinetic probe that makes it easy to take readings at the air intake and air outlet of an installed or uninstalled filter or filtration system.

Monitor and log particle levels

Real-time data transfer and logging is easy and efficient with the ParticleScan CR’s USB interface and data refreshing every six seconds. Particle counts on all six size-channels are stored automatically.
