The APC M3 is a portable airborne particle counter that samples at a rate of 100 LPM (liters per minute). Measuring one cubic meter of air in only 10 minutes, the unit is an extremely fast particle counter. Its higher flow rate reduces the time required to take samples by as much as 70%, thereby helping manufacturers increase productivity and lower labor costs. To identify particulate contamination, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers are required to monitor one cubic meter of air in ISO Class 5 to ISO Class 7 environments. Sampling with this device at the 100 LPM flow rate allows manufacturers to measure the required volume of air quickly and cost effectively.
