In 2021, the Air Pollution Monitor APM-2 has been tested according to EN 16450:2017 by TUV Rheinland. The required compliance tests have been successfully passed for the ambient temperature range from -15 °C to +40 °C. The certification committee has evaluated the test report positively and recommended an announcement in the Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) for the second quarter 2022.
In March 2021, the suitability of APM-2 for continuous ambient air quality monitoring for the fractions PM10 and PM2.5 both in the measuring range 0 to 1,000 μg/m³ according to the MCERTS Performance Standards has been confirmed. You can download the full version of the certificate here.
On May, 13, 2020, the Laboratoire Central de Surveillance de la Qualité de l’Air (LCSQA) attested the conformity of our sampling system PNS 18T-DM for the gravimetric method for determination of concentrations of airborne suspended particulate matter of the fractions PM10 and PM2.5 as well as measurement of the mass concentration of the heavy metals arsenic (As), cesium (Cs), nickel (Ni) and lead (Pb), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (especially benzo[a]pyrene) in the PM10 fraction.The sampling system can now be found on the list of compliant devices for official measurement on air quality in France. In France, our long-time partner Envicontrol looks forward to answer questions on all issues related to the PNS 18T-DM and gladly gives advice to all our devices from the field of environmental monitoring.
Comde-Derenda GmbH takes part in the European Aerosol Conference again this year. The conference will take place from 25th to 30th August 2019 in Gothenburg on the exhibition site. Thematically, the biggest European exhibition covers many areas, for example combustion aerosols, chemistry and physics of aerosols, health aspects, indoor and ambient aerosols, nanotechnology and a broad exhibition of measurement and monitoring devices. A detailed program and further information can be found here. Comde-Derenda GmbH presents the new automatic weighing system for environmental monitoring, the AWS-1RE, with fully RFID-aided data handling. We also show the current version 4 of our dust sampler PNS T-DM, as well as other devices of our product lines. We are looking forward to welcome you at our booth. Date: 25th – 30th August 2019 Venue: Exhibition and Congress Center, Korsvägen, Gothenburg Booth number: 11
On Friday 28/06/2019, the remains of the Morandi bridge which collapsed last year in August have been blasted. Many water cannons were on the job to lower the massive dust formation. Our partner Orion was entrusted to provide online devices to monitor and record emissions of particulate matter during and after the explosion. Therefore, they were on site with some of our APM-2 devices. For further information and video of the blast, see The Guardian.
Comde-Derenda Wuxi has been tasked to carry out comparison measurements of PM1 concentration for the “Blue Sky” campaign of the China National Environmental Monitoring Center (CNEMC). By means of those measurements, basic data for the development of PM1 standards and limit values is retrieved. At the same time, data concerning the comparability of measurement results with regard to geographical characteristics and the application of different measurement methods is gathered. Particularly, comparative studies between manual and automatic measurement of fine particulate matter are needed. Results are taken into consideration for technical standards and directives. The first period of pilot PM1 comparison tests took place from October 2017 to January 2019. According to the current directives HJ618 and HJ656, Comde-Derenda has installed measurement stations in six cities (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Chongqing and Lanzhou). At each station, measurements have been carried out for each 30 days in all four seasons. As measurement device for manual fine particulate matter measurement, the Low Volume Sampler LVS of Comde-Derenda GmbH has been used. The real-time monitoring devices within the comparison worked with the beta ray attenuation method as well as TEOM method (Tapered Element Oscillating Microscale) and scattered light method (nephelometry). Comde-Derenda Wuxi is responsible […]
Comde-Derenda (Wuxi) Measuring Technologies Ltd., hereafter mentioned as Derenda, has won significant package of the Tender published by CNEMC (China National Environmental Monitoring Center) in National Environmental and Air Monitoring Network: Municipal Air Automatic Monitoring Station Operation and Protection Project. This will entitle Derenda to inspect and examine Measurement of PM2.5 (with Derenda Devices). Seen as an important measure in the “Blue Sky” campaign, National Environmental and Air Monitoring Network: Municipal Air Automatic Monitoring Station Operation and Protection Project is implemented in 1436 stations operated by the state and will be executed until end of 2021, making the project duration three years. In the coming three years, Derenda will tour in 17 provincial level entities, including but not limited to Beijing and Tianjin, to execute authorized measurement as inspection and examining of PM2.5 values in 188 cities, which have state owned measuring stations. A renowned manufacturer of measuring devices for particulate matter gravimetric sampling and online monitoring, Derenda offers quality products and service based on our technological competence, among which are high precision mechanical filter changing technology, industrial flow rate variation controlling technology and digital filter handling with RFID and automatization technology as well as integration of cloud technology in […]
In the context of news concerning the diesel affair, the German TV channel ARD reported in a television broadcast called „Das Diesel-Desaster“. Within this report, Prof. Matthias Klingner and his team of Fraunhofer-Institut measured the concentration of fine particulate matter at Neckartor in Stuttgart using the APM-2. You can find the report in the media library of ARD (measurement report starting at 14:10 in the broadcast).
Our environmental monitoring devices LVS, APM-2 und PNS 18T-DM were successfully tested by TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH regarding their sound emissions according to EN ISO 3744:2010. The test results showed that all tested devices emit low levels of noise during operation. See the datasheets of the individual devices for the exact test results.
With the beginning of winter we included a new white cane tip in our product range. The tip SD-S80schnee in bright organge is optimized for the usage in snowy territories. Equipped with a rigid M8 thread it is compatible to all our canes and can be moved on the snow like a sledge.
