DESCRIPTION

The Triplett Model FM260 Formaldehyde and TVOC Meter can simultaneously display real-time measurements of HCHO/CH2O (Formaldehyde) and TVOC (Total Volatile Organic Compounds) concentrations in the air. Potential sources for TVOCs include paints, finishes, adhesives, cigarette smoke, pesticides, personal care products, car exhaust, new furnishings, wall coverings, household cleansers, and cooking fuels. Chemicals include: Acetone, Ethylene Glycol, Formaldehyde, Xylene, 1,3‐butadiene, Tetrachloroethene, Hydrogen Sulfide, Ammonia, Toluene, Benzene, Methylene Chloride, Perchloroethylene, and MTBE. The meter features Fuel Cell Formaldehyde Sensor Technology for high accuracy measurement, a backlit dual LCD, two selectable units of measure (ppm, mg/m³), audible and visual high/low alarms for HCHO. Auto power off conserves battery life. Includes rechargeable 7.4V Li-Po battery and AC charger/adapter. 1-year warranty.

FAQs
  • Q. Is my Triplett FM260 Formaldahyde and TVOC meter calibrated?
    A.If you wanted to periodically check to make sure the unit is accurate yourself, you would invest in some formaldehyde reference calibration gases. The range of this meter is 0.00 to 5.00 mg/m³ (or PPM) so you would want to find a gas in this range and then you’d have to set up some sort of chamber or stable temp, humidity, and pressure environment. The less expensive option may be to find a calibration lab that offers this type of service and see if they can verify it and provide you with a NIST certificate.

    Here is some online information that may help you - GASCO Formaldehyde Calibration Test Gas (calgasdirect.com)

    If you are looking for what a “good, bad” reading should be – I would suggest you look at the latest OSHA standard guidelines here for this type of info as they are always changing and depends on environments – closed/open etc.,
