TPI 1020 Single Channel Particle Counter - From filter testing to IAQ monitoring the 1020 single channel particle counter is used to determine airborne particle concentrations. The 3,000,000 particles per cubic foot concentration range and selectable particle size offers the versatility required for a wide range of applications.
Small Size. Big Performance. The handheld TPI 1020 is a portable particle counter that counts particles down to 0.3 microns-giving you portability and reliability at the lowest price in the industry
Completely Self-Contained-Selectable Particle Sizes. Don't let the size fool you-the TPI 1020 is completely self-contained with its own internal battery and sample pump, and is programmable, allowing you to choose your particle size of interest from five sizes: 0.3, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, or 5.0 microns
Fast Sampling. Unlike other counters that can take up to a minute to deliver results, the TPI 1020 starts delivering volumetric concentration results in about 3 seconds! This facilitates quick multi-site sampling, tracing particle sources and site particle trending.
Simple Operation. Only two front-panel buttons control the size channels and sample cycle. Power is controlled by the Start / Stop button.
Battery or AC Powered. The self-contained battery pack powers the unit for 30 hours of typical intermittent operation, and for up to 12 hours of continuous use. The included AC charger / adapter operates the counter, even when the battery pack is discharged, and recharges the depleted battery in 2.5 hours.
The TPI 1020 is designed to be a small, easy to use and completely portable hand-held particle counter that can provide fast and accurate measurement of particulate contamination in particles per cubic foot (or liter). The TPI 1020 has 5 selectable size ranges of 0.3, 0.5, 1, 2, and 5 micron.
The TPI 1020 contains a laser diode based sensor, Lithium Ion battery pack, vacuum pump, microprocessor electronics, LCD display and user input keys all in one small package. The accuracy of the TPI 1020 is certified according to ASTM and JIS standards and comparable to larger more expensive bench top particle counters. The fast 3-second response of the TPI 1020 makes it especially useful for troubleshooting contamination problems and tracing contamination leaks to the source.
The laser diode based sensor inside the TPI 1020 utilizes a specially designed elliptical mirror for high light collection efficiency and improved signal to noise. Precision optics collimate the laser beam into a thin, very intense beam resulting in increased signal and a high concentration limit of 3,000,000 particles per cubic foot. This high concentration limit allows the TPI 1020 to be used for indoor and outdoor aerosol particulate measurement.
