Thermo Scientific ADR1500 Air Quality Dust Monitor

The Thermo Scientific ADR-1500 Area Dust Monitor utilizes highly sensitive light-scattering photometer (nephelometer) technology, as used in the Thermo Scientific pDR Series monitors. The intensity of light scattered by airborne particles passing through the sensing chamber is linearly proportional to their concentration. This optical configuration produces optimal response to particles providing continuous air quality measurements of the concentrations of airborne particles for total particulate and cut-points ranging from PM-10 down to PM-1.

The ADR-1500 monitor incorporates a temperature and relative humidity (RH) sensor coupled with an internal heater to mitigate the positive bias with elevated ambient RH. Additionally, the flow control is truly volumetric and is maintained through digital feedback of the onboard barometric pressure sensor, temperature sensor, and calibrated differential pressure across a precision orifice. The principles of true volumetric flow, as incorporated by the ADR-1500 monitor, result in an accurate sample volume and precise particle cut-point.

The Thermo Scientific ADR-1500 Area Dust Monitor has replaced the Thermo DataRam 4000.

The Thermo ADR-1500 can be configured with telemetry to be used for both perimeter dust monitoring and VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) monitoring (see image in product gallery).  This system is used for CAMP (Community Air Monitoring Program) monitoring.
