Temtop M10 is an indoor air quality meter for PM2.5, AQI, TVOC and HCHO( formaldehyde) measurement. It helps detect wildfire and smoke air pollution in your local area. Get M10 to understand and control over the air you breathe. Its design allows users to easily move around the house and take measurements in different rooms.
|KNOW AT A GLANCE
||Large and clear reading, with 3-color indicator lights, know the air quality immediately from wherever you look at it.
||Measure PM2.5, AQI, TVOC, and HCHO, with sensitive Temtop 3rd generation laser particle sensor and Dart electrochemical sensor.
|EASY TO USE
||A home button realizes all operations, including power, interface switch, and display cycling. The 2200mAh battery provides portable power when USB charging is not available.
||The HCHO( formaldehyde) sensor supports easy calibration. To ensure the accuracy of the sensors, make sure it is placed in a ventilated environment (indoor or outdoor) for at least 6 hours before used for the first time or after stored for a long time.
||1 year warranty
It's suggested to place the device in a ventilated environment for 6 hours before first-time use to get a cleaning cycle for sensors. During the procedure, please turn off the device.
Understanding air pollution has become a need in order to live a better and healthier life. Air pollution is a combination of several gases and small suspended particles in the air, it can be colorless and invisible, but bigger particles can be seen in the air such as dust and pollen. Long exposure to air pollution can cause several health issues, this factor strongly depends on how long, hong often, and how much pollutants the individual has been exposed to. Children and elderly people, and people with certain health conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, heart, and lung diseases are more sensitive to air pollution effects.
Primary Pollutant in the USA
Particulate matter(PM) is the primary pollutant in the US. PM comes in many different sizes and it can as small as a hair. 90% of the time particulate matter is inviable to human eyes. PM has many sources, such as combustion such burning fuels from cars, ships, airplanes, trucks, buses. Also, it comes from certain types of facilities as cooking facilities, meat industries, wood-burning, wildfires. PM also comes from natural resources like dust and storms. But most of the PM in the is formed by a mix of several pollutants retained in the air.
Know the Pollutants
PM2.5: Particulate matter at the size of 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller can only be seen with an electron microscope. These particles are so small that can easily travel into our lung system.
HCHO: is a colorless, poisonous, highly water-soluble gas with an obnoxious odor. Used in the manufacture of disinfectants, preservatives, and hundreds of industrial and consumer products such as adhesives, carpeting, decorative paneling, foam insulation, drapery, fiber and particle boards, and permanent press fabrics.
TVOC: TVOC is a grouping of a wide range of organic chemical compounds to simplify reporting when these are present in ambient air or emissions. Many substances, such as natural gas, could be classified as volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
AQI: For each pollutant, an AQI value of 100 generally corresponds to an ambient air concentration that equals the level of the short-term national ambient air quality standard for the protection of public health. AQI values at or below 100 are generally thought of as satisfactory. When AQI values are above 100, air quality is unhealthy: at first for certain sensitive groups of people, then for everyone as AQI values get higher.
|1. Place the device outdoors for more than 6 hours.
|2. Turn on the monitor.
|3. The display will show HCHO ( formaldehyde) concentration. Click on the home button to switch the display to each concentration reading (PM2.5, TVOC, AQI).
|4. Double click the home button to enter the cyclic display mode.
|5. Double click the home button again to exit the cyclic display mode.
|6. Light indicators indicate the corresponding air quality.
It is suggested to calibrate the detector manually after three months of use as follows.
|1) Turn on the detector and wait for 10 minutes.
|2) Use a pin to push the hidden button at the back of the device until HCHO(formaldehyde) icon flashes on the screen.
|3) Place the detector outdoors for ventilation purposes for 10 minutes.
|4) The calibration is done when the HCHO(formaldehyde) icon stops flashing.
