  • Theory of Operation: FP-25 Field Flow Calibrator for PM Air Samplers

    Alicat’s FP-25 and FP-25BT flow devices can be used to calibrate any low-volume particulate air sampler on your deck. These NIST- traceable field flow calibration devices are multi-parameter mass flow meters that display pressure and temperature. The FP-25 uses multiple pressure sensors to capture both ambient barometric pressure and internal flow stream pressure, resulting in […]

  • Air quality monitoring sensors: importance, emerging trends and challenges

    Alicat produces flow standards specifically used to calibrate air quality monitoring sensors. We offer a variety of high-accuracy devices (such as the Alicat FP-25) designed to help government agencies comply with US regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA requires monitoring and documenting of concentrations of particulate matter and other criteria pollutants in […]
