Air sampling & monitoring systems for commercial nuclear industry - Energy - Nuclear Power

Since 1973, HI-Q has directly and successfully served the commercial nuclear industry worldwide with reliable, High Quality (HI-Q), continuous duty air sampling equipment, systems and accessories. For over 30 years, our products, professional design capability, and consumables have been used in remote & internal air monitoring programs including stack sampling system designs which implement the “shrouded probe” per ANSI N13.1 1999 design specifications.

HI-Q offers the highest quality & tested TEDA impregnated carbon cartridges for the collection of radioiodine in the industry. Each batch of filter media is tested in cartridge format by Environmental Engineering & Testing, Inc., an independent laboratory, according to the American Society for Testing of Material’s retention efficiency test method ASTM-D-3803-98, Sect 12. The tests are performed in cartridge format at 5 individual flow rate points (0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, & 4.0 SCFM), at both a 18-Hour Pre-Equilibration & a 168-Hour (7 day) Pre-Equilibration for a total of 10 tests, with one duplicate confirmation test point at 2.0 SCFM, through 11 separate carbon cartridges manufactured from a random sampling of HI-Q’s latest batch of 8 x 16 mesh TEDA impregnated carbon, LOT# Specific. A cumulative performance curve is included with each report. Copies of each lot specific, individual test reports are available from HI-Q.

QUALITY ASSURANCE: HI-Q Environmental Products Company manufacturers all of its cartridges under an ISO 9001:2000 Certified quality assurance program. Following the procedures set forth in their Quality Assurance Program ensures repeatable performance and dimensions of each cartridge manufactured. HI-Q specifically has each individual lot of carbon and silver zeolite, from which the individual cartridges are made, randomly tested and certified by an independent testing laboratory at multiple sample flow rate points through the most common geometry of cartridges utilized in the nuclear industry. The Lot-Specific test results are included with each customer order.
