In the past, if you wanted six size channels or printer capabilities, you had to contend with a large, heavy counter or with external printers, cables, and cords. Now Met One gives you battery-operated portability, up to six size channels, and a built-in printerall in one compact instrument!

The Model 237 counts airborne particles in up to six different size ranges simultaneously. Count data is displayed on the front-panel as total number of particles (cumulative count) or the particles in each size range (differential count). The printout shows cumulative and differential count data for each size range.

For maximum flexibility, four modes have been incorporated to provide quick answers to measurement questions or to allow unattended operation. The manual mode completes one count cycle then turns the air pump off to prolong battery life. Auto mode repeats the count cycle for the number of cycles programmed to allow unattended monitoring. Concentration mode gives a quick estimate (within seconds) of the particle concentration. Beep mode provides one beep after the count exceeds a selected limit, which is handy for isolating sources of particle contamination such as leaks in filter banks.

Now it is easy to carry a particle counter right to the point of interest and obtain quick, accurate resultsresults you can immediately print or download later using Particle Vision? PortAll?Software. The bright LED display lets you see the data easily. The Model 237: bright display, printer and cordless operationa real asset in any cleanroom.
