  • CMT simplifies Vapor intrusion monitoring

    Vapor intrusion refers to the movement of volatile chemicals from the subsurface into the indoor air of overlying buildings. The most common source is groundwater or soil contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs emit vapors that migrate into pore spaces of the soil and upward into the overlying environment. Generally, vapors enter buildings through cracks and openings in the ...

  • Are toxic vapors entering your house from underground?

    The issue of vapor intrusion in buildings has become a significant environmental concern for building occupants, regulators and industry leaders. According to the EPA, the potential health issues vary and are dependent upon the types of chemicals and concentrations of the chemicals. The length of the exposure and the overall health of those exposed is also a factor. At one end of the spectrum, ...


  • Increase mercury vapor detection range by 10X

    New vapor dilution module extends detection range of the Jerome J505 from nanograms to milligrams. How it works: The new 10:1 dilution module for the J505 reduces the concentration of mercury vapor in the sample stream by a factor of ten, allowing for a much higher detection limit. Rather than the standard upper detection limit of 500 μg/m3, the new J505 dilution module ...
