8506-30 Handheld Particle Counter

8000 Series Handheld Particle Counters

Model 8506-30

0.3 – 75 µm @ 0.1 CFM (Large Particles)

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.
