MINI WIDE-RANGE AEROSOL SPECTROMETER
Electrical Mobility and Optical Particle Counting & Sizing
The compact Mini Wide-Range Aerosol Spectrometer (MiniWRAS) is the only portable instrument on the market that allows simultaneous and precise real-time monitoring of both micron-sized and nano particles.
Designed and specifically built for indoor air quality monitoring, the MiniWRAS is a fit for purpose, state-of-the-art system that combines optical and electrical particle detection in one single device.
This system offers many features, such as a 10 nm to 35 µm ultra-wide particle size range, simultaneous PM1, PM2.5, and PM10 measurement, 41 high resolution particle size channels, remote data transmission and instrument control. Easy to use, transport and deploy, it can be flexibly applied in various IAQ monitoring projects.
The MiniWRAS is the optimal solution for monitoring indoor PM values taking the nanoparticles into account and revealing the particle size distribution in the small nanometer range. It´s a perfect tool for indoor air quality monitoring at working places, inside vehicles, airplane cabins, trains, R&D testing, and many more.
