Model 8506-30 Handheld Particle Counter

Brand: Particles Plus, Inc.

The Particles Plus® 8506-30 Handheld Particle Counter measures 0.5 to 75.0 μm with a flow rate of 0.1 CFM - 2.83 LPM.

Easy to configure, this instrument displays up to 6 user-selectable size channels as well as temperature and relative humidity.

View data and generate ISO 14644-1, EU GMP Annex 1 or FS 209E reports on screen or via printer, USB key, real time through its versatile output options or export to Particles Plus® data-download software.

Particles Plus® counters can be controlled and monitored remotely via web browser.

The 8506-30 mass concentration mode approximates density in μg/m³ and allows for density and refractive index corrections to ensure accuracy.

All Particles Plus® counters meet ISO 21501-4 and JIS B9921.

The 8506-30 ensures compliance with an on-board pulse height analyzer.
