Formaldehyde Detector - Test Meter for Gas and IAQ
General Tools FD08
Measure levels of gaseous formaldehyde (HCHO) as part of a workplace indoor air quality (IAQ) maintenance program or to spot-check a residential environment. Protects people from formaldehyde exposure danger with regular testing.
Formaldehyde is found in many products such as chemicals, laminate flooring, particle board, household products, glues, permanent press fabrics, paper product coatings, fiberboard, and plywood. It is also widely used as an industrial fungicide, germicide and disinfectant.
The General Tools Formaldehyde Gas Detector features an electrochemical sensor which measures real-time formaldehyde gas concentration with accuracy and resolution.
Meets U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH’s) acceptance criterion.
Track, calculate, and display three cumulative formaldehyde gas metrics:
- 8-hour TWA (time weighted average)
- 1-hour average
- 15-minute STEL (short-term exposure limit).
Formaldehyde Detector Test Meter Features:
- One-button calibration to 0 ppm in fresh air
- User-adjustable high concentration audible alarm threshold
- Also measures relative humidity (RH) and temperature in °F or °C
- Manually offsettable long-term drift of temperature and RH accuracy
- Minimum, maximum, memory, and data hold
- Large backlit dual-readout LCD
- 15-minute Auto Power Off (can be disabled)
- Low battery indication
- Tripod mount
- CE and RoHS approved
