  2. Better Air. Better Lives. Measurement Capabilities of the URG-9000 Ambient Ion Monitor The most widely used: • URG-9000D-Ambient Ion Monitor (AIM) Time-Resolved Direct Measurements of Nitrate, Sulfate, Nitrite, Phosphate and Chloride, Ammonium, Sodium, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Hydrogen Chloride, Nitric Acid, Sulfur Dioxide and Ammonia URG-9000D 116 S. Merritt Mill Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27516, USA www.urgcorp.com

  3. Better Air. Better Lives. Measurement Capabilities of the URG-9000 Ambient Ion Monitor The 9000 Series Ambient Ion Monitors is available in three additional configurations: • URG-9000A Ambient Ion Monitor (AIM) Time-Resolved Direct Measurements of Nitrate, Sulfate, Nitrite, Phosphate and Chloride • URG-9000B Ambient Ion Monitor (AIM) Time-Resolved Direct Measurements of Nitrate, Sulfate, Nitrite, Phosphate, Chloride, Ammonium, Sodium, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium • URG-9000C Ambient Ion Monitor (AIM) Time-Resolved Direct Measurements of Nitrate, Sulfate, Nitrite, Phosphate, Chloride, Hydrogen Chloride, Nitric Acid, Nitrous Acid and Sulfur Dioxide 116 S. Merritt Mill Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27516, USA www.urgcorp.com

  4. Better Air. Better Lives. Advanced multi-pollutant monitoring URG-9000 Ambient Ion Monitor is a scientifically advanced multi-pollutant monitoring method that: • Provides a timely data stream of multi-pollutants that influence atmospheric chemistry and air quality • Operates and collects multi-pollutant data continuously • Provides gases and particles as time-resolved measurements • Allows for continuous improvement in source apportionment analyses • Helps to improve modeling necessary for determining the relative contributions of various emission sources 116 S. Merritt Mill Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27516, USA www.urgcorp.com

  5. Better Air. Better Lives. Advanced multi-pollutant monitoring URG-9000 Ambient Ion Monitor is a scientifically advanced multi-pollutant monitoring method that: • Helps better characterize the extent of regional transport of Pollutants • Provides improved regional dry deposition estimates • Improves understanding of visibility degradation • Provides inputs into various ecosystems • Helps in the development and validation of air quality models 116 S. Merritt Mill Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27516, USA www.urgcorp.com

  6. Better Air. Better Lives. Analysis Method • Analysis method is Ion Chromatography. • Requires as little as 4 liters of deionized water for 10 sampling days. • Detection limit is .05ug/m3 and can be less depending on which ion is being measured. • Separates the nitrate and sulfate ions. • Losses due to volatilization are eliminated. 116 S. Merritt Mill Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27516, USA www.urgcorp.com
