‘Traffic Box’ Fills the Void

Apr 08 2008

Small scale diffusion sampling or full reference chemiluminescent monitoring station? For many of those environmental personnel working in industry, deciding which form of sampling to use at the roadside has been an ongoing issue. Both forms of monitoring have their advantages, but what if there was a product available that filled the void between…
Tomeet this demand air qualitymonitoring specialists, Enviro Technology (UK), are now offering their industry customers the TrafficBOx - a brand new super-compact, discreet, real-time, cost-effective air quality system that can not only monitor for up to six gasses – O3, NO2, CO, SO2, CO2, VOC - plus PM10 but can also take into account environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction and noise.
The fewer components that need to be measured, the smaller the enclosure can be. It’s so small – 500 x 250 x 700mm - that it can be mounted onto lampposts, railings or other street furniture and, due to its size, requires no planning permission.
There’s also no need to worry about powering this analyser as it will run on batteries, solar power or via traditional mains electricity.
Says Enviro Technology’s operations director Duncan Mounsor: “We believe the TrafficBOx is the perfect solution for those industry customers looking for a more intelligent way to monitor roadside air pollution without incurring the financial implications associated with full reference monitoring.”
“The New Zealand based manufacturers of TrafficBOx have a high pedigree of world class experience in designing sensor technology. We’re pleased to be able to exclusively offer this system – the smallest of its kind – to our customers.”
“In terms of cost benefits we have estimated that, if a client is using up to ten diffusion tubes per month to measure for NO2, they will recoup their purchase costs in just 12 months.”
The TrafficBOx uses high performance Analytical GSS Technology® to measure pollutants.
Data collected is stored internally and available in real-time or short term resolution to a PC via GSM, modem or other communications options.
Continues Duncan: “Data that I have seen in comparison studies with that of full reference chemiliminescent analysers shows excellent correlation. We will be installing a TrafficBOx alongside our MCERTS approved reference AQM station in Stroud and are expecting to see this
excellent data correlation ourselves, first-hand.We welcome industry customers, both existing and new, along to our HQ to see the results for themselves.”
