Dekati® PM10 impactor is an ideal tool to measure PM10, PM2.5 and PM1 mass concentrations both in outdoor and indoor air. The Dekati® PM10 Impactor size classifies and collects different sized particles on filters that are analyzed after the measurement for gravimetric mass size distribution and/or chemical composition. The unit is manufactured from stainless steel to ensure reliable operation in long term use and even in harsh environments. The measurement setup in indoor air quality measurements is simple to use and includes a pump with flow control, also available from Dekati Ltd. Either aluminium or polycarbonate foils can be used on the impactor stages as a particle collection surface depending on the preferred particle analysis method. The required sample collection times depend on the PM levels in the air and also on the sensitivity of the particle analysis method; typical sampling times are around 1-7 days.
