Red Triangle

Consult the method or the SKC Air Sampling Guide to determine the appropriate sorbent tube to use for the chemical being sampled.


Red Triangle

Just before sampling, use a scorer/breaker tool to uniformly break the ends of the sorbent tube to a 2 mm diameter or half the diameter of the tube body.


Red Triangle

Keep the tube in a vertical position during sampling to prevent the possibility of channeling that can lead to undersampling.


Red Triangle

The arrow on the tube indicates air flow direction and should point to the tube holder and pump. If no arrow is present, the smallest section should be near the tube holder.
