|The Passive Sampler for Organic Vapors collects organic vapors without the use of a pump. The sampler is validated for short-term and eight-hour sampling and 24-hour indoor sampling for some compounds. Use the sampler to test exposure to toluene, tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, xylenes, ethylbenzene, 2-butanone (MEK), hexone (MIBK), benzene, butyl acetates, and styrene.|
SKC VOC Chek 575 Passive Samplers
Miniature VOC Chek 575 samplers collect organic vapors without the use of a pump. Individual chemicals simply diffuse from the atmosphere into the sampler at a fixed rate. SKC has scientifically validated the sampling rate of the VOC Chek 575 Series passive samplers along with other critical sampling parameters to meet OSHA/ASTM/ANSI requirements. SKC VOC Chek 575 Series Passive Samplers are identified as a viable alternative to active sampling in seven OSHA methods.
Full-shift Sampling with only ONE sampler
SKC VOC Chek Passive Samplers are validated for a full 8 hours, that's TWICE the
limit value! This assures the integrity of the sampler, so you only
need ONE sampler to get a true 8-hour TWA!
Using a VOC Chek Passive Sampler is easy as 1, 2, 3!
