2013 has been PPM Technology’s (UK) most successful year to date for the sale of the Formaldemeter htV and htV-M instruments– a hand held and automated devices for the detection of formaldehyde in the workplace.

Expanding on our success within the Asian marketing, PPM Technology has recently won government tenders to supply a number of units within the Shaan Xi province, Ning Xia and the Inner Mongolia provinces of China.

The launch of our new product, the Touch Screen Indoor Air Quality Monitor in 2013 has also been successful with our first unit in Asia to be installed into a hospital in Macau, China within the first quarter of 2014.

The Far East has been our biggest market for a number of years, due to the legislation introduced which demanded monitoring of formaldehyde levels in any indoor environment such as offices and many industries.

PPM Technology has succeeded in finding markets throughout Asia, with many of our key markets now in the region. We are doing business in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and China, which collectively accounts for over 50% of our overall business.

PPM Technology's Formaldemeter htV is able to accurately measure airborne formaldehyde concentrations as well as ambient temperature and humidity levels.  Using the Formaldemeter htV-M continuous monitoring is possible with data logging capability for over a months worth of data. 

Overexposure to airborne formaldehyde is dangerous to health, but the risks can be substantially reduced if levels are regularly measured and monitored.

PPM have also introduced a range of multi-parameter Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring devices, The Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor can contain sensors for a maximum of 7 customer specified IAQ parameters. The Mini IAQ Profile Monitor can contain a maximum of 5 sensors. Both these instruments send the collected IAQ data wirelessly to the control pc/laptop in real-time, a large number of units can be networked together to enable accurate monitoring of an entire building.
