SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Teledyne API, a business unit of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated
(NYSE:TDY), announced today a new ambient air quality monitoring
instrument, the Model T640 PM Mass Monitor, that measures the
concentration of fine particulate matter below 2.5 microns in diameter
(PM2.5) continuously, in real-time.
Fine airborne particles are known to be hazardous to human health and
are one of the main causes of reduced visibility or haze in many parts
of the United States and elsewhere in the world. PM2.5 is an important
measure of particulate pollution that is regulated by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and by equivalent government
agencies around the world. Teledyne API’s T640 instrument has achieved
regulatory approval from the U.S. EPA, and Teledyne is actively pursuing
a number of international certifications, including for growing markets
in China and India, where public awareness of poor air quality continues
to gain attention.
Teledyne API particulate monitoring instruments have been rapidly
adopted by air quality monitoring agencies across the United States and
in a growing number of countries across the world, with several hundred
units already in operation. “We expect this momentum to accelerate based
on the incredible rate of adoption we have seen in the U.S. EPA national
monitoring network, and as the instrument receives the required
international regulatory approvals,” said Martin Abbott, General Manager
of Teledyne API. “This new instrument serves the growing market need to
produce more accurate, time-resolved PM2.5 measurements, with very low
operating and maintenance costs.”
