SKC Deployable Sampler Systems
Ambient Air Kits for 24-hour Sampling

  • Compact and portable — only one case!

  • Fast setup with modular components and quick-connect tubing

  • Ideal for remote locations or indoor air sampling
    • Pre-program automatic start and stop
    • 24-hour Li-Ion battery-operated system
    • Easy, secure operation from within a heavy-duty lockable case
    • Quick-mount bracket is easy to install
    • Quick-change battery packs
    • Rain cover protects sampling head
    • Compact for easy transport
    • Low noise for indoors

  • System pump provides constant, accurate airflows
    • Simple 3-button keypad for setting a single unattended sample run
    • Program for multiple runs with a PC and DataTrac for Leland Legacy Software

  • Available for sampling PM10, PM2.5, or PAHs/PCBs/pesticides/associated particulate
SKC Deployable Sampler System with callouts

SKC Deployable Sampler Systems provide cost-effective ambient air sampling and are ideal for applications including fenceline monitoring, near-roadway monitoring, 8-hour remediation monitoring, and indoor air studies. Each system includes the fully programmable Leland Legacy Sample Pump, specially designed sampling head, and accessories for fast deployment and effective sampling. SKC offers two systems:

  • The Deployable Particulate Sampler (DPS) System for PM10 or PM2.5

  • The Deployable Cartridge Sampler (DCS) System for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), pesticides, and associated particulate
Unlike other ambient sampling systems, SKC Deployable Sampler Systems fit into one heavy-duty Pelican case that is easily carried or shipped. Partner the DPS or DCS System with DataTrac Software for advanced scheduling options and record keeping.
