  • Sampling of Carbonyls Using a Dual-Layer LpDNPH Glass Sampling Tube and HPLC Analysis

    The dual-layer LpDNPH sorbent tube is an air sampling device designed for sampling carbonyls (e.g. formaldehyde) in ambient, indoor, and industrial atmospheres. Carbonyls are trapped on our high-purity silica gel adsorbent coated with 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (2,4-DNPH) where they are converted to stable hydrazone derivatives. The derivatives are eluted from the tube in acetonitrile and ...

  • Is the Rotameter Ready for Retirement in Air Sampling/Monitoring Applications?

    The variable area rotameter has been the primary tool utilized for determination of flowrates passing through the air circuitry pathway of air sampling or air monitoring systems for many years. In air sampling applications a pollutant is captured on a collection medium (filter paper, charcoal cartridge, etc.) and taken to a laboratory for determination of the quantity of pollutant on the ...

  • Monitor Organophosphorus Pesticides in Air, Using ORBO-49P Tubes and Capillary GC

    A sampling tube containing Supelpak-20 resin and a glass fiber filter effectively adsorbs and releases five organophosphorous pesticides (chlorpyrifos, diazinon, dichlorvos, malathion, parathion) in vapor or aerosol form in air.  At a sampling rate of 1L/min, 8 hour samples can be taken for all of these pesticides except malathion.  Short term (15 min) samples can be taken at the same ...

  • Impact of Sampling Media on Soil Gas Measurements

    Abstract To evaluate the vapor intrusion pathway for a building and to assess the associated human health risks, soil gas samples near the building site and under the building foundation may be collected. In order to meet risk assessment goals, the analytical laboratory is often required to report compounds of concern for these soil gas samples down to the part per billion ranges or lower. ...

  • Residential Vapor Intrusion Evaluation: Long Duration Passive Sampling v. Short Duration Active Sampling

    Abstract Sampling indoor air for potential vapor intrusion impacts using current standard 24-hour sample collection methods may not adequately account for temporal variability and detect contamination best represented by long-term sampling periods. Mr. Henry Schuver of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Solid Waste staled at the September 2007 Air & Waste Management ...

  • Evaluating Leaks in a Soil Gas Sampling Train

    ABSTRACT The current advisory for active soil gas investigations in California requires leak tests to be conducted at eveiy soil gas probe while taking a sample. A leak may allow ambient ak into the sample train thus diluting the soil gas and underestimating the results. Also, the leak check compound itself may have impurities thereby contaminating the sample. The advisoiy suggests leak ...

  • Low Flow Groundwater Sampling Using RotaPump Inertial Lift Pump

    This article tells you how to perform low flow groundwater sampling using a portable, surface-mounted pump with no decontamination required before each use and  no chance of cross contamination between wells. An inertial lift pump moves a dedicated (stored in the well) pumping tube rapidly up and down.  A one-way valve on the bottom admits water on the down stroke and ...

  • Canisters v. Sorbent Tubes: Vapor Intrusion Test Method Comparison

    Abstract A carefully designed field vapor intrusion investigation consisted of three one-foot deep borings spaced one-foot apart at three locations within the perimeter of a former dry cleaner. One six-liter Summa canister (EPA Method TO-15) and two pump/packed tube assemblies (EPA Method TO-17) were used in each three-boring arrangement for a total of nine sampling locations. A ...

  • Conductivity Measurement in high purity water samples below 10 microsiems/cm

    High Purity Water Resistivity/ Conductivity Measurement Ultra-Pure Water without any chemical impurities will still have a conductivity because of the presence of H* and OH" ions due to the self-ionization of water. Ultra-pure water has a conductivity of 0.055 HSiemens'cm or a resistivity of 18.18 mQ-cm at 25 °C. In order to know the conductivity or resistivity of ultra-pure water it is ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • EPA studies identify techniques for critical leak testing prior to soil-vapor sampling

    Researchers at EPA’s National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) in Ada, OK, are developing quality assurance (QA) measures for soil-gas and sub-slab sampling methods that help differentiate contaminant vapors due to vapor intrusion from background sources. Recent research focused on measures to identify leakage of ambient air into conventional vapor probes, which can significantly ...
