HyperEye®-AP [PM]

Air pollution's adverse effects on public health has led to global interest in addressing environmental challenges. Continued high levels of air pollution may be responsible for increased cases of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer in urban areas. Yet, despite governmental efforts in reducing emissions in urban areas, pollution continues to pose a risk for the exposed population. As major cities around the world attempt to implement air pollution control policies, there is a growing need for current, precise analysis on sources of the pollutants. One of the most cost-effective techniques in identifying air pollution sources is via source apportionment analysis.

 

HyperEye-AP [PM] collects air samples using standard FRM (Federal Reference Method) PM2.5 or PM10 size-selective inlets on filters or rollers. Those filters are processed using GVS's technology and an extensive source database to determine the air pollution sources.  The system uses dry technology which requires minimal maintenance and incurs very low operational costs.
