Pinssar Technology

Have complete confidence in your controls with the only practical solution for DPM monitoring. We provide the only continuous, real time, fixed diesel emissions technology solution specifically designed for harsh environments.

Specifically designed from the ground up

The Pinssar DPR was developed specifically to detect sub 800 nanometre particles which evolved into our patented diesel emission technology with 23 unique innovations recognised globally.

Communication options

Communication options

The system was designed to connect using a range of communication methods including Wifi, cellular, ethernet, 4-20 mA or direct USB connection.

The Pinssar DPR can store up to 8 years of data on the internal Compact Flash memory card.

The most common methods of viewing the data are by either using the Pinssar Dashboard or by connecting to the client’s preferred Dashboard and/or SCADA package.

What does the Pinssar DPR measure?

All particles smaller than 0.8 micron, or 800 nanometres (nm).

What is the DPM particle size range during the combustion process?

A single DPM particle is between 10 – 40 nm in size.

What is the DPM particle size range once it is released into the atmosphere?

Once a particle is released into the atmosphere, it agglomerates with other DPM particles and is generally between 70 – 370 nm.

Is DPM only Elemental Carbon?

No, DPM is a composition which includes multiple fine carbon particles (for example, elemental carbon and organic carbon) including hazardous chemicals known as poly aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Click here to read more.


Does the Pinssar solution measure elemental carbon (EC)?

The Pinssar DPR doesn’t measure Elemental Carbon (EC) or Total Carbon (TC), but it measures all particles smaller than 800 nm.

What technology does the Pinssar system use to measure particles?

The Pinssar DPR uses Laser-Light Scattering Photometry (LLSP) to measure particles. LLSP is an analytical technique for the measurement of particles based on the scattering of incident light by individual particles and has been in use for over 50 years.

Does the Pinssar solution have patent protection?

Pinssar has a registered patent in the USA for 23 unique innovations with patent pending in other regions throughout the world.

What certifications does the Pinssar solution comply with?

To see the complete list of certifications, please click here and download our Technical Specifications.

How does the Pinssar solution proclude particles larger than PM1?

The patented Pinssar DPR uses a commercially-available NIOSH-tested cyclone inlet which provides a sharp cut point at 800nm equivalent aerodynamic diameter (EAD), even in atmospheres contaminated with high >3mg/m3 respirable particles.

How does the Pinssar DPR address calibration issues such as long term zero drift?

No manual calibration is required during normal operation of the unit. As part of every measurement cycle, an automatic sample of filtered, particle free air is flushed through the Pinssar DPR and then a zero reading is taken. This value is used to automatically compensate to derive a true instrument response every sample.

How often does the Pinssar DPR need to be calibrated?

Pinssar recommends the DPR is serviced and recalibrated on a 12 – 18 month basis, subject to monitoring conditions.
