Indoor environment is a broad topic. It spreads across multiple scientific fields and activity sectors covering from Indoor Air Quality in the residential space or in public areas (recreational, commercial buildings) to Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Safety and Health in the professional world (office space, healthcare and industrial buildings).
LumaSense Technologies – with its INNOVA product line – provides measurement solutions needed by researchers, specialized consultants, equipment manufacturers, and building system solution developers in as many applications as academic research in building science, field commissioning or diagnosis (forensic) of indoor air quality solutions, exposure monitoring (occupational safety & health), or performance testing of HVAC equipment or extraction systems.
Indoor Air Quality Monitoring, Industrial Hygiene
Our Photoacoustic Multi-Gas Monitor product line (INNOVA 1314i / 1512) is particularly suited to the detection/monitoring of trace levels of multiple compounds in an ambient air background. They hence serve as stationary or field portable solution in the following applications:
- IAQ monitoring/testing in public spaces such as residential/education/commercial buildings with the measurement at trace levels of Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs), Ammonia (NH3), Carbon Monoxide (CO), or carbonyls like formaldehyde.
- Industrial hygiene studies in healthcare/industrial/office buildings: Eg. Waste anesthetic agents in operating theaters, occupational exposure in print shops (solvents), VOC in pharmaceutical labs.
Our detection limit chart gives an overview of the extent of gas compounds and of application that we can cover.
Building Science – Ventilation Performance Testing – Extraction system/Capture efficiency
The INNOVA product line benefits to ventilation and building science specialists who rely on advanced tracer gas methods to characterize and test independent equipment or full ventilation systems. When operated in coordination with the release of a tracer gas, the superior measurement specifications of our photoacoustic monitor help delivering the unique value of tracer gas methods. Our MultiPoint Sampler and online monitoring software further expand the range of applications.
Users of our Tracer Gas Solutions benefit from their high flexibility in the choice of the tracer gas, their portability, and their fully automated operation.
Our INNOVA product line provides trusted solutions to perform characterization or compliance tests on air purification devices. Our photoacoustic monitors are polyvalent and easily customized to any gas of interest, providing superior flexibility with regard to challenge compounds.
Furthermore, features like multi-gas monitoring (up to 5 different gases) and wide dynamic range are highly valuable: a unique photoacoustic monitor can monitor with equal accuracy the conditions upstream and downstream a sorption bed (breakthrough time characterization), or it can measure in parallel both the reactants and the products when monitoring a photocatalytic process.
Advanced gas monitoring system featuring most tracer gas methods applicable to ventilation performance measurement standards.
