Topas Airborne Particulate Monitor

Topas (Turnkey Optical Particle Analysis System) is a fixed station monitor designed to continuously record environmental   TSP, PM10, PM2.5 and PM1 particles. Topas has achieved the Environment Agency's MCERTS certification, ensuring its accuracy in recording data.

The instrument is housed in a compact, unobtrusive stainless steel wall box with IP66protection. Inlet heating is fitted as standard. All controls and displays are located behind a lockable door.

Several sites can be networked together to form a city wide monitoring system. Sites can be connected by radio, telephone or GSM modems, internet connection or fixed wiring and controlled by one PC using AirQ software.

Product Information

  • ​Topas will continuously indicate the concentration of TSP, PM10, PM2.5 and PM1 particles with a resolution of 0.1 micrograms per cubic metre. In its workplace mode, it will indicate inhalable, thoracic and respirable concentrations. Osiris has achieved the Environment Agency's MCERTS certification, ensuring its accuracy in recording data.
