  • General Tools FD08 Formaldehyde Meter

The #FD08 is ideal for measuring levels of gaseous formaldehyde (HCHO) as part of a workplace indoor air quality (IAQ) maintenance program. It can also spot-check a residential environment.

Features:

  • The electrochemical sensor measures real-time formaldehyde gas concentration with accuracy and resolution that meet the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH’s) acceptance criterion
  • Also tracks, calculates and displays three cumulative formaldehyde gas metrics: the 8-hour TWA (time-weighted average), the 1-hour average, and the 15-minute STEL (short-term exposure limit)
  • One-button calibration to 0 ppm in fresh air
  • User-adjustable high concentration audible alarm threshold
  • Also measures relative humidity (RH) and temperature
  • Manually offsettable long-term drift of temperature and RH accuracy
  • Min/Max memory and data hold
  • Large backlit dual-readout LCD
  • °F/°C switch
  • Auto power off (can be disabled)
  • Tripod mount

Specifications:

  • Formaldehyde measurement range/resolution: 0 to 5 ppm/0.01 ppm
  • Formaldehyde measurement accuracy: ±(5% + 0.03 ppm)
  • Sensor type/warmup time: Electrochemical/1 to 15 minutes, typical
  • Temperature measurement range: 0° to 122°F (0° to 50°C)
  • Temperature measurement accuracy/resolution: ±1.8°F (±1°C)/0.1°
  • RH measurement range: 10 to 90%RH
  • RH measurement accuracy/resolution: ±5% of reading/0.1%
  • Display type/size: Dual-readout LCD/2 in. (51mm) diagonal
  • Auto power off: After 15 minutes of inactivity
  • Operating temperature: 32° to 122°F (0° to 50°C) @ < 95% RH
  • Weight (including batteries): 7.2 oz. (204g)
  • Power source: Four "AAA" batteries (not included) or optional #AC2 AC adaptor
