FP-25 Calibrator Kit for Air Quality Monitoring


Calibrator Kit for PM Samplers and Air Quality Analyzers

Use FP-25 to audit and calibrate PM10 and PM2.5 particulate matter samplers and air quality testing/analyzer devices to regulatory standards.

  • PM air monitor compatibility. Compatible with all PM air monitors: TEOM, Partisol, Beta Attenuation Monitors (BAM), T640.
  • Easy integration. Bluetooth antenna plus Alicat Connect app remotely reads air sampler measurements, with data-logging capabilities for data management software.
  • Accurate, multi-variate measurement. NIST-traceable mass flow, volumetric flow, pressure, and temperature measurements to ±1% of reading.
  • Portable & durable. Battery-powered calibrator mounts directly to air monitoring (FRM or FEM) instrument, negating effects of wind gusts. Any weather—IP67 rated. Accurate from -30°C to +60°C and up to 95% relative humidity.
