8506 Handheld Airborne Particle Counter

Handheld Particle Counter measures 0.3 μm to 25.0 μm with a flow rate of 0.1 CFM (2.83 LPM).

Easy to configure, up to 6 user-selectable size channels as well as temperature and relative humidity. View data and generate standardized reports on screen or via printer, USB key, real time through its versatile output options or export to Particles Plus data-download software. Particles Plus counters can be controlled and monitored remotely via web browser. The 8306 mass concentration mode approximates density in μg/m³ and allows for density and refractive index corrections to ensure accuracy.

Saturation point 20 times more than industry standard with 40x processing capacity.
