What is Particulate Matter?

Particulate matter (PM), also known as particle pollution, is a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air. Once inhaled, these particles can affect the heart and lungs and cause serious health effects.

Particulate Matter Penetration in the human body

Particulate matter comes in different shape and sizes. The infographic below shows how deep in the human body those particles end up when inhaled. The smaller the particles, the more dangerous they are! That’s why, when choosing an air filter, you should always choose protection against the smallest particles, in other words PM1.

How to measure particulate matter?

Many people have heard about the dangers of particulate matter, but don’t know how to measure particulate matter or finedust. And with the new ISO 16890 standard in place and the awareness of the danger of particulate matter rising we thought it made sense to cover the subject of how to measure fine dust.  Therefor we have recorded a short (57s) video that explains you how you can measure particulate matter using a TSI Dusttrack ii device. We hope you like it!
