The impact of the industrial and manufacturing sectors on the environment has never been more of a priority. Reducing their effects on air quality due to pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, particulates and VOCs are a key focus for many organisations and regulatory agencies. Many of these sectors are highly regulated and operated under strict guidelines, requiring large, static and extremely expensive compliance equipment which cannot always provide the required resolution to quickly identify problem areas and implement changes at the source of this pollution.
AQMesh is a small, portable and easy to install air quality monitoring station which incorporates over a decade of experience, independently demonstrated performance and proven robustness alongside unbeatable global customer support to provide actionable data in near real-time. AQMesh has already been incorporated alongside regulatory and compliance equipment around the globe to greatly assist in the optimisation of operations in order to increase pollution monitoring resolution and reduce the risk to the health and wellbeing of workers and surrounding communities, without incurring large and unnecessary operating costs.
Robust hardware, wireless communications and the secure AQMeshData server mean AQMesh pods can easily reconnect themselves and continue to capture data if power is ever interrupted
AQMesh pods require very little maintenance and there is a very low ongoing cost. All we recommend is the electrochemical sensors are replaced every two years, and we replace all sensors for free during the first year
Email alerts can be set for exceedances on any data channel, completely customisable to the user’s required detection limits and can be integrated into other systems for autonomous control
AQMesh performance and long-term baseline stability has been proven over many years of independent global co-location trials against certified reference equipment
AQMesh has been on the market and in the field since 2012, with some customers still successfully operating the exact same pods they received nine years ago

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that long-term exposure to poor air quality can have the same damaging effect as smoking 20 cigarettes a day, with air pollution shown to be more dangerous than passive smoking.
AQMesh is now able to offer CO2 and H2S within its range of gas options for local air pollution monitoring. The NDIR CO2 sensor, which can be offered within a single AQMesh pod alongside five other gases out of NO, NO2, O3, CO, SO2 or H2S, as well as PM1, PM2.5, PM10, temperature, pressure and humidity, has been developed to deliver a higher performance than those typically used for indoor air quality monitoring.
S I Analytics has supplied 65 AQMesh pods into Southern Africa since 2016, many of which are used in mining applications. The small, post-mounted air pollution monitoring units measure a range of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter, as well as environmental conditions.
On 9th April The Sunday Times reported that employers have been told they are legally obliged to protect their staff from diesel fumes — and could be sued if workers develop cancer later in life.
Technology is critical to so many essential services during the current crisis, but it is also allowing local air quality to continue to be monitored, in real-time, across the world. Small sensor air quality monitors such as AQMesh pods can use cloud data storage to ensure that air quality information is stored and accessible even when staff are not able to visit equipment.
AQMesh has been measuring ozone (O3) using small sensors since 2011 and the readings from the latest generation electrochemical sensor, using AQMesh v4.2.3 processing, as compared to co-located certified reference readings, consistently show an R2 of over 0.9 with an accuracy ±10ppb (20µg/m3).
