Measurement data in real time.

“When we took the 720°-system for the first time in use in October 2015 we noticed quickly that this is the first system that offers real time data about the indoor air quality,” says Eero Paavilainen, Helen’s Technical Manager.

Since the late 1980s Helen had used a variety of facility monitoring & management systems, which measured only temperature, relative humidity and carbon dioxide.

“None of those systems have monitored the air quality as widely. In addition it shows the data in graphic form in a surprisingly user-friendly way,” says Paavilainen. “Especially the VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are interesting. Within the spectrum of air quality the 720° monitoring system measures VOC concentrations in real time .”

“With this solution it is easy to follow VOC emissions, which are are emitted for example from new fittings and furniture. If VOC levels are too high we can take profound steps,” Paavilainen says.

Helen’s expert is especially happy about the fact that information is accessible at all times, allowing any suspicions regarding air quality to be checked immediately. The solves the problem caused by one-off measurements which cost time while the momentary local samples were being analyzed in a laboratory.

”In addition to “Sähkötalo”, we have started to monitor the indoor air quality in Hanasaari, where Helen’s powerplant and an office building are located. The new site offers comparable data to our other facility and we get also interesting data of the summer’s Particulate Matter levels,” Paavilainen says.
