Inhalable dust in indoor air
This test is performed to determine the amount of inhalable dust present in indoor air. The sample is collected using a sample collector and pump, which are sent to the customer upon ordering at no extra cost.
Inhalable dust particles have an aerodynamic diameter of <100 µm. Their concentration in the sample is reported as mg/m³.
According to the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health degree on Hazardous Concentrations (538/2018), the normative threshold value for inhalable dust is 10 mg/m3 on an eight-hour average concentration.
