Last updated: October 23, 2017

What Does Air Quality Monitor Mean?

An air quality monitor is a device that measures the level of common air pollutants. Monitors are available for both indoor and outdoor settings. Indoor air quality monitors are typically sensor based instruments. Some of them are able to measure ppb levels and come as either mixed gas or portable units. Sensor based instruments and air quality monitoring systems are used widely in outdoor ambient applications.

Safeopedia Explains Air Quality Monitor

Industrial operators use air quality monitoring equipment to cost effectively monitor and manage emissions on their perimeter, which helps them improve relationships with regulators and communities. With air quality regulation shifting the burden from publicly funded monitoring to monitoring funded by industry, it has been increasingly important for businesses to acquire their own quality monitoring equipment.
