USES

AIR IDEAL is used for:

  • Environmental monitoring

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

For active microbiological air sampling, AIR IDEAL meets the latest ISO standards while remaining economical to purchase and operate. AIR IDEAL has an ergonomic design and is user-friendly, easy to operate and programmable, allowing sequential air sampling.

In an environment of increasingly strict regulation, the AIR IDEAL aerobiocollector meets the most stringent parameters. CE, UL and CSA marked, the AIR IDEAL operates according to the impaction principle recommended by the draft standard ISO/DIS 14698-1, with air intake of 100 L/min and impact speed of <20 m/sec.

AIR IDEAL FEATURES

AIR IDEAL air samplling instruments and environmental monitoring AIR IDEAL microbiological air sampler is designed with greater user comfort in mind:

  • Easy to use:
    • Lightweight (1.3 kg)
    • Ergonomic ambidextrous handle
    • User-friendly software with sampling parameter storage, audible and visual alarm at end of cycle, programmable start-up (1-60 minutes)
    • Sequential sampling
  • Robust: Monoshell of injected ABS plastic
  • Complete: Supplied with five sampling grids:
    • Interchangeable without adjustment

  • Easy to maintain: Resistant to disinfectants, with smooth surface and no dead angles

The AIR IDEAL air sampler also offers greater control security:

  • Performance:
    • Demonstrated by Technical Center for the Aeraulic and Thermal Industries (CETIAT)
    • Almost all particles between 3 and 10µm collected
  • Precision: Air intake rate metrologically tested by CETIAT
  • Four-hour autonomy:
    • NiMH battery, specially designed to prevent progressive decrease in battery capacity
    • Alarms at end of battery autonomy enable user to finish collecting sample in progress in complete security
    • Residual autonomy display
    • Automatic display switch-off after five minutes of inactivity
  • Guaranteed air-tightness
    • O-ring seals inside device guarantee no contact with mechanical and electronic instrument parts while providing air-tight air circuit
    • Design guarantees continuous new air intake (air taken in is evacuated on side opposite to air intake)
