Winter in Germany

The winterly weather conditions made the difference in handling and convenience particularly obvious. While tube collectors require a lot of manual handling – including collecting them one-by-one – the Hawa Dawa solution delivers the air quality information conveniently to your desk.
This is only one of the benefits. Additionally, traditional tube collectors deliver one average value of NO2 concentration per month, whereas Hawa Dawa includes PM2.5, PM10 and O3 real-time values at any time.
And the cost? The total cost of ownership for the Hawa Dawa solution is about 50% of the tube collector’s cost.
