Description

The AQM-103 is designed to measure Carbon monoxide CO concentration and air temperature with visible and audible alarms. This CO monitor is an ideal instrument for indoor air quality (IAQ) diagnosis and local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system performance verification.

CO is a common by-product of the combustion of fossil fuels. Carbon monoxide or CO is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas. Due to this fact, it is very hard to detect the presence of CO in your environment. It is, however, imperative that the CO levels are carefully monitored. Even at relatively low levels, CO is poisonous because it rapidly accumulates in the blood thereby depleting its ability to carry oxygen. Extreme cases of CO poisoning result in death.

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 impose a legal requirement for the workplace control of exposure to Carbon monoxide, by reference to Table 1 of EH40/2005 Workplace Exposure Limits.

The Long-term exposure limit for Carbon monoxide as listed in EH40 is 30 ppm or 35 mg/m³ (8 hour TWA reference period). The short-term exposure limit (15 minute reference period) is listed in EH40 as 200 ppm.
