Gas & Particulates Monitoring

Air quality sampling directly alongside noise level monitoring

As well as noise, one of the biggest components of environmental monitoring is air quality sampling. Ensuring the environment is free from dangerous levels of certain gases and particulates, such as dust, is essential in order to keep people and the environment safe. We offer monitoring equipment with sensors for fine dust, ultrafine particles and gaseous pollutants.

All your data in one place:  Cirrus Research has partnered with South Coast Science, experts in air quality monitoring, to offer you the best out-of-the-box solution for urban air quality monitoring. With instant access to air quality data alongside noise measurement information, Quantum Outdoor provides you with a greater level of control over your environmental impacts, allowing you to respond in real time and make effective decisions when it comes to implementing remedial action. Connected to the cloud via MyCirrus, Quantum Outdoor sends all measurement data directly to the cloud where it can be viewed, analysed and reported on. 

With the addition of Quantum Outdoor's air sampling integration, you can detect key environmental pollutants including gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and nitrate. The air quality sensor can detect particulates too including respirable particles with sizes PM 1, PM 2.5 and PM 10 (MCERTS certified for PM2.5 and PM10). Many of these gases and particulates are found in vehicle and motor exhausts, as well as in smoke from burning oil and coal, and in dust from demolition, construction and quarrying for example.
