The HHAQ-108 is ideal for
measuring levels of gaseous
formaldehyde (HCHO) as part
of a workplace indoor air quality assessment to determine the need for, or effectiveness of, a local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system.
The HHAQ-108 features an electrochemical sensor which measures real-time formaldehyde
gas concentration. It also tracks, calculates and displays three cumulative formaldehyde gas
metrics: 8-hour TWA (time-weighted average), 1-hour average, and 15-minute STEL
(short-term exposure limit).
The UK Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 impose a legal requirement for the workplace control of exposure to Formaldehyde, by reference to Table 1 of EH40/2005 Workplace Exposure Limits (WELs).
The STEL for Formaldehyde as listed in EH40* is 2 ppm or 2.5 mg/m³.
The device is also equipped with a tripod mount fitting for hands
